Uh oh! You need to have cookies enabled to sign in. Sign in with Facebook. Sign in with Google. I loved the list. I love my annotated version best. But I have two others. I love the cover detail espescially that you gave. What a great list! Everytime I go to the bookstore I take a few minutes and look for any new cover that strikes my fancy.
Lovely list, Laurel Ann! I personally love the Annotated version of Pride and Prejudice. I love how the entire novel is on the left hand of the page and the annotations are on the right hand side of the novel — that way you are not constantly flipping to the back. I also love knowing more about the context and little things about the Victorian Age.
(Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
No commentary or notes whatsoever. Just the pure old English language I barely understood. But it was in that way that I understood bit by bit the story through rereading it for a couple of times. You can say, self taught. I might give in and buy! That must depend upon the binding. The illustrations are hilarious! Hugh Thomson definitely had a sense of humor. The first two for the cover art, the last two for the extra content… must balance vanity with the improvement of my mind by extensive reading!
I must add that I bought the Jane Austen app for my iPhone. Pingback: Which Pride and Prejudice edition should you read? I have to admit, I really do like the cover of the penguin deluxe edition.
However my favorite edition is the new penguin classics one with the yellow cover. While the yellow does tend to look a little garish, the fabric lining the novel is reminiscent of an older time. Like this: Like Loading Thanks for the list. I do plan to collect the real books, too! Post to Cancel.
Pride and Prejudice - Classics Reimagined
Post was not sent - check your email addresses! This is no big surprise, really. As mentioned earlier, the book seems ridiculously hard to bring into other mediums. Add to that the fact that Butler is a prose novelist as yet untried as a comics scribe. Predictably, she leans too heavily on her words or Austen's words if you want to be like that. Panels are filled with walls of text, desperate to get out the requisite information before the book's finale—which comes way too fast. And more than that, we haven't seen the characters develop in any ways not directly associated with their words.
Which brings us to Hugo Petrus' art. Even had Butler's writing left plenty of room to make use of the visual storytelling unique to the comics medium, this adaptation would still be roundly considered a failure. The art, apart from being actively bad, is so great a mismatch to the book's content that one wonders how on earth this casting decision was ever made.

Petrus' style, even if it was well-done it wasn't , tries to turn Austen's Eighteen-Aughts romance into a sleek, sexy soap operatic mess. These are my sisters Herp and Derp and my other sisters Herp and Derp] Let's forget for a moment that Lizzy looks like she's just polished off a mug of vodka and that Kitty is gazing wild-eyed into the hole in the back of Lydia's head.
This looks like the cast of an awful sitcom about five women who co-own a design firm and have wacky, wacky adventures with clients whose requirements they aren't really able to meet but still continue running their business because the show would end otherwise. And apart from their collars, it could probably be set in a period as recent as last year though one of them would have to have shorter hair, maybe. I mean, apart from the faux- Cosmo text thrown up all over. The illustrations by Sonny Liew were completely adorable. That was an Elizabeth Bennet that I wanted to read about—even if the writing was only so-so, Liew's art sold me on the series, easy.
An artist who could create such a winning Elizabeth and Darcy was easily worth my attention. If you hadn't figured it out already, allow me to point out: Sonny Liew is not Hugo Petrus and Sonny Liew's only contribution to the book is cover art. This is why some readers get upset when the art featured on a book's cover does not at all resemble the art in the book's interior. Even though this is pretty common practice, it stinks of false advertising. So, Jane Austen gets stuck with Petrus, who at least in this volume seems incapable of matching character art with what is going on in the panel.
Pride and Prejudice - Wikipedia
Examples: The Elizabeth who has shown herself cynical enough to merrily jest about the folly of the class-conspicuous occupants of Netherfield suddenly appears dead inside, reacting to Jane's goodwill toward Bingley by being overwhelmed by the hopelessness of a world that will always beat down truth and beauty in every instance: [Note: Jane is supposed to be playfully exasperated in this scene] Mister Collins, buffoonish applicant to marital bliss with Miss Elizabeth Bennet, while talking of the girl's possible loss of income, decides to model Blue Steel for Mrs. Bennet: [Personally, I prefer to lead with the tongue or teeth, but if lips is what you've got then lips is what you've got.
Bennet takes off his glasses in time for the aneurism that will absolve him of any personal responsibility in steering his family in a manner that would guarantee Elizabeth's loss of both fortune and the bearing of Darcy's future-babies: [Looks like Mr. Collins will be taking on the house at Meryton sooner than later] Elizabeth, hearing of Mr. Darcy's devotion, happily bites her lip and squeezes out a fart: [Suddenly Squirtle! The drawing style strangely shifts throughout, especially in the final chapter.
