Jane Austen Facts:

The first title chosen by Jane Austen for Pride and Prejudice was First Impressions. One only needs to read the novel to understand why that would have been a perfectly appropriate title. The novel was originally published in three volumes. All of Jane Austen's books were published anonymously and she received no recognition while she was alive.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." And so begins Pride and Prejudice. Below is a photograph of Burghley House, the setting of Pride and Prejudice.
