    It is 200 years since Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice was published, and even after all that time it is showing little sign of losing any of its enormous popularity.

    Jane Austen's portrayal of manners, morality and marriage in early 18th century England has continued to resonate through time. Pride and Prejudice has been translated into countless languages, selling 20-million copies.
