Pride and Prejudice (Annotated)
Pride and Prejudice (Annotated) | Jane Austen
87 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
Along with the plays of William Shakespeare and the works of Charles Dickens, Jane Austen's novels are among the most beloved books of Western literature. Pride and Prejudice (1813) was in Austen's lifetime her most popular novel, and it was the author's personal favorite. Adapted many times to the screen and stage, and the inspiration for numerous imitations, it remains today her most widely read book. Now, in this beautifully illustrated and annotated edition, distinguished scholar Patricia Meyer Spacks instructs the reader in a larger appreciation of the novel's enduring pleasures and provides analysis of Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Catherine, and all the characters who inhabit the world of Pride and Prejudice. This edition will be treasured by specialists and first-time readers, and especially by devoted Austen fans who think of themselves as Friends of Jane. In her Introduction, Spacks considers Austen's life and career, the continuing appeal of Pride and Prejudice, and its power as a stimulus for fantasy (Maureen Dowd, writing in The New York Times, can hold forth at length on Obama as a Darcy-figure, knowing full well her readers will "understand that she wished to suggest glamour and sexiness"). Her Introduction also explores the value and art of literary annotation. In her running commentary on the novel, she provides notes on literary and historical contexts, allusions, and language likely to cause difficulty to modern readers. She offers interpretation and analysis, always with the wisdom, humor, and light touch of an experienced and sensitive teacher.

I just love the ending paragraph of P&P. I think it‘s a testament to Elizabeth of her altered feelings, not only for Darcy, but having a deeper understanding of herself and allowing her sentiments to change.

Thank you @sprainedbrain for coordinating us for this read along! 😘 Can‘t wait to watch some P&P and read adaptations!

In honor of Elizabeth and Darcy happily ensconced at Pemberley - Bubbles to drink and I lit my new The Gardens at Pemberley Candle. It smells of Honeysuckle, Rose Petals, and Jasmine.
A toast to @sprainedbrain for bringing all us #Pemberlittens together. Delightful always.

Crinoline_Laphroaig As to the Annotated Edition - it's beautiful. But all the Footnotes distract from just reading the story. Found myself read Chapter 1st out of one of my other copies then going back a reading Footnotes. So I actually read the book twice. I'll have to count that on my Goodreads. 😉 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig But I did learn a lot. For instance Last Chapter talked about how P & P has is the most Fairy-tale of her books. Handsome prince + Beautiful maiden. 1y

"Oh! thoughtless, thoughtless Lydia!"
This chapter shows just how Lydia's actions will affect her sisters marriage prospects. I think this is why Pride and Prejudice is so hard to modernize. Women today aren't going to starve in the hedgerows if they don't marry.

"gave them to understand that they were going to Gretna Green,"

How timely is this? 3 Years Ago Today I set my feet on Scottish Soil for the 1st time - in Gretna Green.

As a life long reader of Austen & tons of other English Novels, there was no way I was going to miss this spot I heard so much about. Yes it was touristy but I loved it. ??????? @sprainedbrain #pemberlittens

"There was now employment for the whole party—for though they could not all talk, they could all eat; and the beautiful pyramids of grapes, nectarines, and peaches soon collected them round the table." Annotated notes would be grown in Darcy's Greenhouses. Saw several at Chatsworth but this one you couldn't go in. Fortunately Himself had the good camera so he could get photos. ???

"It is above eight months. We have not met since the 26th of November, when we were all dancing together at Netherfield." Elizabeth was pleased to find his memory so exact; and he afterwards took occasion to ask her, when unattended to by any of the rest, whether all her sisters were at Longbourn."

I just adore these sweet little page flags of Jane & Bingley peeking out. ?

Since my trip to UK 3 years ago, I have often contemplated which is inspiration for Pemberley. Lyme Park or Chatsworth? After rereading today's Chapter (for the umpteenth time) I'm going with Lyme Park. Obviously from this my favorite pic of house & Italian Garden, it's gorgeous. It's where Colin Firth P & P was filmed. Has a quiet sedate beauty; while Chatsworth is more opulent. ⬇️ @sprainedbrain #pemberlittens
#prideandprejudicereadalong

Crinoline_Laphroaig I can picture Mr. Darcy at Lyme Park. His character is written as rich but not mega - rich. Chatsworth just seems to me to be so more money than imaginable. 1y

Lcsmcat I have to ask- what is the footnote? I can‘t think what in that sentence would need a footnote. 1y

Lcsmcat @CrowCAH Wow. I didn‘t realize that would need clarification. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y

OMG all the feels. This is my all time most favorite chapter of the whole book! The proposal, the language, the raw emotions, the expectation and denial. I often just reread it; conveys the whole essence of P&P. I‘m swooning. I‘m in about as much agitation of mind as Elizabeth is, not with as many tears, but to think of her being an object of admiration from Mr. Darcy! He‘s feels much in her refusal.

Graciouswarriorprincess It‘s one of my favorites as well. This and the end when he is walking across the field! 1y
staci.reads Agreed, so much swoon, and my heart hurts for him every time 💔 1y

Prairiegirl_reading IMO Darcy is so repulsive until he says he proclaims his love and then he‘s different but I totally love that Lizzy doesn‘t just change her mind right away and accept. Just because a man professes his love doesn‘t excuse his behaviour. 1y

CrowCAH @Graciouswarriorprincess In the movie that is a great scene! 1y
CrowCAH @staci.reads I agree. He‘s so hopeful for a positive answer. 1y
CrowCAH @DAB it is shocking, because like Charlotte said to Lizzy to make herself agreeable to him, he has money, Elizabeth sees beyond the material and at the actual person, or who she interprets that person to be. 1y
CrowCAH @sharread yesss, Matthew MacFadyen is a handsome man; makes an excellent Darcy! 1y
CrowCAH @Prairiegirl_reading very true. I‘d be offended too, if he said he‘s loved me against his better judgment, my family connections, and those closest to me. I‘ve broken up with boyfriends, because they didn‘t respect my mother. 1y
CrowCAH @sprainedbrain it sure is. What gets me, as we read the book slowly chapter a day, is that Elizabeth is blind to his growing attentions to her. She sees it as an impertinence on her time. 1y

This is another chapter with A LOT of great quotes!

One of my favorite quotes: “True; and nobody can ever be introduced in a ball room.” Elizabeth said to Darcy.

batsy "I am ill qualified to recommend myself to strangers" needs to be on a t-shirt for me ? 1y
Palimpsest @batsy agreed, and I actually feel quite sympathetic with Darcy in this chapter as he honestly seems to be what we call introverted. I‘m an awkward conversationalist at first as well. 😊 1y
batsy @Palimpsest I'm the same :) I sympathise with Darcy, too. It is interesting though that the narrative doesn't extend that same understanding for poor Mary to explain herself (I feel she suffers from the same, but maybe lacks the self-awareness...) 1y

Way to get him keep asking Mrs. Bennet! ?

Also don't you think Elizabeth is thinking 'If Only' when Mrs. B is ranting about not speaking to her ever again. ?

Perfect chapter for afternoon tea and a biscuit. ?

Elizabeth you should watch what you say. Already you have gone back on your word about not dancing with Mr. Darcy. Now you may become one of those ladies who wish for a second proposal! (Lol I may know the future!)

I‘d have to say one of my favorite scenes from the 2005 version when Darcy and Elizabeth dance at the Netherfield Ball and all the other dancers vanish.

The score by Dario Marianelli is just gorgeous! 🎼

Watch all three glorious minutes! 😍 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yNIAv34eVRk

wanderinglynn Mine too. I love all the music, but especially in this scene. 1y
ElizaMarie Ooo I am so excited for when we are done with this book (which I am greatly enjoying) to watch these movies! I haven't seen a single one! 1y
CrowCAH @wanderinglynn agree! 😊 1y
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie oh wow, none?! But I do agree, I can‘t wait to do a rewatch; it‘s been a long time since I‘ve watched the 2005 version. Just last year I watched the 1995 version with a wine book club! 1y
ElizaMarie @CrowCAH I have never been a romance, or drama type of person. I watch mostly horror movies. So yeah I haven't seen any of these! I am enjoying the book a lot! 1y
