Pride & Prejudice: 19th Century Chick-Lit?

No performance info available


Jane Austen is one of Britain's greatest novelists and Pride & Prejudice is her most immediately popular book. What is it about this tale of three or four gentry families living outside a small country town that has captured readers' affection for over two hundred years?

Is it as "light and bright and sparkling" as its author described it or does it need "to be stretched out with a long chapter of sense"?

Dr Julia Jones is a biographer and novelist who is also the author of standard revision guides to Pride & Prejudice.

In this pre performance talk she will offer her own answers to these and other questions, including any that are raised by the audience.
