The 200th Anniversary of Pride and Prejudice's publication is this week. Celebrating an amazing author like Jane Austen calls for some research on her best-known book, which has been made into two or three movies.
- Her original draft of Pride and Prejudice was titled First Impressions and was rejected by a top publisher.
- She accepted a proposal from her best friends brother, but changed her mind the next morning.
- Her deep dislike of the French was fueled by her cousin's husband's death by guillotine during the Revolution.
