Publisher's Description

The first fully annotated edition of Jane Austen’s beloved classic, presenting the complete text alongside comprehensive, detailed annotations—now revised and expanded with hundreds of new notes and illustrations

A sheer delight for Jane Austen fans, The Annotated Pride and Prejudice contains the complete text of Pride and Prejudice with thousands of annotations, including:

• Explanations of historical context: Rules of etiquette, class differences, the position of women, legal and economic realities, leisure activities, and more.
• Citations from Austen’s life, letters, and other writings: Parallels between the novel and Austen’s experience are revealed, along with writings that illuminate her beliefs and opinions.
• Definitions and clarifications: Archaic words, words still in use whose meanings have changed, and obscure passages are explained.
• Literary comments and analyses: Insightful notes highlight Austen’s artistry and point out the subtle ways she develops her characters and themes.
• Maps and illustrations: See the places and objects mentioned in the novel.
• An introduction, a bibliography, and a detailed chronology of events
 
Of course, one can enjoy the novel without knowing the precise definition of a gentleman, or what it signifies that a character drives a coach rather than a hack chaise, or the rules governing social interaction at a ball, but readers of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice will find that these kinds of details add immeasurably to understanding and enjoying the intricate psychological interplay of Austen’s immortal characters.
