Pride and Prejudice for the modern generation!

5 Nov

I know I am coming ridiculously late to the party, but I have just discovered The Lizzie Bennet Diaries  For the uninitiated, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are a series of webisodes which reimagine the protagonist of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as a 24-year-old grad student vlogger.

I would love to study this text with a Year 10 class in conjunction with Austen’s original novel, exploring the ways in which a classic text can be reinvented for a new generation.
