Confession: I watched the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice before I even knew who Jane Austen was. As a rule I always read the book before I watch its movie, but this was in 2005, before I took all kinds of sophisticated English classes, and before I got a fancy degree in English, and before my love affair with classic literature began. Nevertheless, I have been a huge Austen fan ever since I saw that movie (I read the book immediately after watching it, by the way).
Jane Austen is one of the greatest writers of all time, and her love stories are enduring and classic. My Baby's Guide to Jane Austen is available in my Etsy shop and can be customized with your favorite quote from each book. Here's a complete look.
