Elizabeth pride and prejudice

Ten great Pride and Prejudice Resources.

Okay, some are just plain fun. But that’s great too, no?

1. Write Like Jane Austen (the Jane Austen Thesaurus). Well, you might also need to take a writing class, but this is a start.

2. Writers read Austen afresh. Now you can get a fresh look without rereading Austen yourself. ;-)

3. P&P quiz: Know your Bingleys from your Bennets?  

4. If Lizzie Was a Texter and Darcy Could DM. Comic treatment of the vain and the vituperous

5. Jane Austen: What Books Were on Her Reading List? Reading Jane’s list might be an extra boost if you are trying to write like her.

6. Republic of Pemberley. An exhaustive resource on everything Pride and Prejudice. Full text of all chapters cross referenced to anything you might ever (or never) want to know (Possibly developed by someone with a pathological love for the novel)

7. Seven People Who Hated Pride and Prejudice. Self explanatory, no? Can you guess who might be on the list, before you get there?

8. Pride and Prejudice Text analyzer. Just in case you were wondering if you were in danger of over-Jane-isms.

9. 5 Amusing Pride and Prejudice Quotes and a Wet Shirt. One sick writer, one classic novel, and a wet shirt. You know you want to click through.

10. Infographic: Simpleton’s Guide to Pride and Prejudice. The side comment about naming estates like cats and dogs might be worth the whole infographic

Bonus Link: Happy Birthday, Mr. Darcy. Snarky and loving Pride and Prejudice Playlist

  1. I found the Jane Austen Thesaurus particularly helpful in eradicating words like “folks” and “stuff” out of the infographic text.

    Not that I would use those words usually, you know.

    Fun list of stuff. I think folks will like it.

    ;)

      lol! :)

      Is there a South Dakotan text analyzer somewhere out there? We need to feature it.

      Oh, wait. Maybe we could just ask you ;-)

  2. re: 9.

    you sorta set out a dare just there.
