But such is the allure of a novel like Pride and Prejudice, one of literature’s most beloved works of fiction. The rocky courtship of headstrong, witty Elizabeth and the proud landowner Fitzwilliam Darcy as they both overcome their own failings has steadfastly remained one of the greatest romances committed to fiction. Falling in love with the novel is a memorable romance in itself. Today, it celebrates its 200th anniversary - 200 years of delighting readers of all ages, both sexes and various dispositions. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy may have been written for the genteel manners of an 18th century British middle class, but they have long been cast in the X-rated fantasies of readers so enamoured of their various qualities that they cannot help but do things to them in their mind that would make Austen blush. Or perhaps not. (via Delights of a 200-year-old love affair - The Drum Opinion (Australian Broadcasting Corporation))
