Pride and Prejudice As Told in a Series of Texts

Focus Features/SparkNotes


Pride and Prejudice is a 19th-century novel about unmarried people dancing with each other while snobbish aristocrats walk through gardens and make cutting remarks.

If it took place today, there would be markedly less garden-walking, an equal amount of upper-class snobbery, and 100% more texting. You think there’s even a CHANCE Darcy wouldn’t be lurking near the snack table at the Netherfield ball pretending to text because he’s too awkward to talk to people? Please. Here’s how the men and women of Meryton would have fared with the boon of twenty-first century technology.
