Download or read book The Austen Formula: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century written by Julia Wilhelm and published by diplom.de. This book was released on 2014-10-01 with total page 93 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: World literature is full of great love stories, but there are few that make it through the centuries and are as well-known and loved today as they were decades ago. One of those stories that have the ability to leave an everlasting impression is Jane Austen’s best-known and probably most famous novel Pride and Prejudice (1813). Its appeal to literary posteriority lies in the astonishing emotional impact of a seemingly simple story: A clever girl and a mysterious man, destined for one another, loathe each other from the very beginning because of wrong first impression and bad influence from others. They gradually have to overcome these obstacles in order to recognise the nobility of each other’s characters and find happiness together. From Austen’s contemporary writing and its scarce possibilities for women writers on to the emancipation of the female author up until the possibilities for women novelists in the lately developing genre labelled chick lit – Pride and Prejudice still continues to fascinate readers and writers alike. This book sets out to examine how Austen’s formula was put to use to yield three contemporary works of British fiction; Kate Fenton’s Lions and Liquorice (1995), Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary (1996) and Melissa Nathan’s Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field (2000) and what transformations it has experienced in the process.

Download or read book Vanity and Vexation written by Kate Fenton and published by Macmillan. This book was released on 2013-09-24 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A clever and cunning modern day retelling of the adored Jane Austen novel "Tall, dark, and arrogantly handsome---not to mention distinguished, powerful, and rolling in money. Mr. Darcy? No, that's just the woman director of Pride and Prejudice," reports Nicholas Llewellyn Bevan, impoverished novelist and occasional (reluctant) journalist, when a TV production company trundles into his sleepy North Yorkshire valley. Amusedly he watches these glamorous invaders combine the filming of Jane Austen's romantic classic with the much less modest pursuit, off-camera, of real-life romances with the locals. Under his very nose, his bashful handsome neighbor John is plucked out of a village dance by the famously gorgeous (and wealthy) leading actress, Candia Bingham, with whom he at once falls completely in love. Our would-be hero manages only to trip over the black-booted foot of the intimidating and imperious director, Mary Dance. So he's amazed---and a little bit alarmed---when her steely eye seems to be straying his way. A witty and entertaining update on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Austen fans old and new will adore Vanity and Vexation's modern take on her sublime blueprint of the romance game complete with sex, money, and power. With an assured and respectful hand, in the context of the contemporary world, Kate Fenton has penned a riveting story with a hilarious twist. After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that Hollywood taking an interest---better still an option---in a novelist's work is a surefire way to propel that novelist into serious sales figures and the bestseller lists.

Book excerpt: A sparkling novel about the funny side of life in Yorkshire, from the author of LIONS AND LIQUORICE.

Her brother, the squire of a local stately home, and sister-in-law greet her with open arms thinking Teddie can sort out their marriage, but Teddie is rather distracted by her new acquaintance, the vile, gorilla-like, Eastender and painter Bill, who's moved in next door with his ghastly dog and dysfunctional life...

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: She was astonishingly lovely; her Spanish descent was apparent in her magnificent black tresses, lustrous eyes, and oval face of olive tinted with richest carmine. As Theodore afterwards learnt, she was the daughter of a Spanish Government official of an ancient Castilian family, who had left his widow in such straitened circumstances that she was compelled to support herself by exhibiting performing mice and canaries at juvenile parties, until she met and married the Professor, who at that time was delivering recitations illustrated by an oxy-hydrogen lantern. The second marriage had not been altogether a success, and, now that the Professor was a widower, Theodore fancies that his relations with his imperious stepdaughter were not invariably of the most cordial nature, and that he would have been grateful to any one who succeeded in winning her hand and freeing him from her sway.
