Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice is a classic. It has been translated, adapted for film and television, and reimagined by many different authors. Adaptations of it have included modern retellings, graphic novels, zombie stories, different narrators, and much more. We will explore the question of why Pride and Prejudice has inspired so many retellings and what those retellings bring to the conversation. Texts may include Pride by our visiting writer Ibi Zoboi, Pride and Protest by Nikki Payne, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, and Longbourn by Jo Baker.
