Classic Literature | 4 March 2016Classics Reimagined: Pride and Prejudice Share article facebook twitter google pinterest It’s fun to read your favorite classics over and over again, but sometimes you need something to breathe new life into a story. These images from Classics Reimagined: Pride and Prejudice do just that. Darcy took up a book; Miss Bingley did the same; and Mrs. Hurst, principally occupied in playing with her bracelets and rings, joined now and then in her brother’s conversation with Miss Bennet. By tea-time, however, the dose had been enough, and Mr. Bennet was glad to take his guest into the drawing-room again, and when tea was over, glad to invite him to read aloud to the ladies. When the card tables were placed, he had the opportunity of obliging her in return, by sitting down to whist. When the dancing recommenced, however, and Darcy approached to claim her hand, Charlotte could not help cautioning her in a whisper not to be a simpleton and allow her fancy for Wickham to make her appear unpleasant in the eyes of a man of ten times his consequence When they ascended the steps to the hall, Maria’s alarm was every moment increasing, and even Sir William did not look perfectly calm.—Elizabeth’s courage did not fail her. “Upon my word,” said her ladyship, “you give your opinion very decidedly for so young a person.—Pray, what is your age?” “With three younger sisters grown up,” replied Elizabeth smiling, “your ladyship can hardly expect me to own it.” “You mean to frighten me, Mr. Darcy, by coming in all this state to hear me? But I will not be alarmed though your sister does play so well. There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me.” As she had heard no carriage, she thought it not unlikely to be Lady Catherine, and under that apprehension was putting away her half-finished letter that she might escape all impertinent questions, when the door opened, and to her very great surprize, Mr. Darcy, and Mr. Darcy only, entered the room. To Pemberley, therefore, they were to go. Buy from an Online Retailer US: UK: A beguiling and modern illustrated edition of a classic tale.
