People Who Hated Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'

It is a truth universally acknowledged that few books are as beloved as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, which was published on January 28, 1813. The story has been re-told from Darcy’s perspective (Darcy’s Story), shifted to America (Darcy on the Hudson), and, of course, transformed into soft-core Regency-era erotica (Pride & Prejudice: Hidden Lusts; Pride and Prejudice: The Wild and Wanton Edition). But despite how beloved Pride and Prejudice is, there have been plenty of people who hated it. Background: iStockIn 1848, 31 years after Austen’s death, Charlotte Brontë picked up Pride and Prejudice on the recommendation of friend and literary critic George Henry Lewes. Jane Austen was a complete and most sensible lady, but a very incomplete and rather insensible (not senseless) woman.”2.
