Happy Birthday 201st to Pride and Prejudice, first published on January 28, 1813.

Jane Austen’s novel is one of the most read and adapted novels in our culture, and has been popular continuously since its publication over 200 years ago. Its fandom is immense, spurred on, no doubt by a BBC adaptation in 1995 starring Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. The amount of fan fiction is staggering, with countless re-tellings and re-imaginings of the story to be found.

It’s a novel that just won’t quit – Happy Birthday. Pride and Prejudice!
