Darcys Story reveals at last the truth about Jane Austens most famous hero, Fitzwilliam Darcy. "Pride and Prejudice" is the most popular romantic novel in the world, yet it says little about how Darcy is changed from a "haughty, reserved and fastidious" young man to the ardent and humble suitor for the hand of Jane Austens delightful heroine, Elizabeth Bennet. "The New Illustrated Darcys Story" reveals what you always wanted to know.
Like many other people, I first read "Pride and Prejudice" whilst I was at school, as did my children, and have enjoyed reading the novel again many times since then. It was after watching the BBC television serial in 1995, and discussing it with one of my daughters, that my curiosity was re-awakened about Mr Darcy, and I decided to write this book.
I am sure that everyone who has read and enjoyed Jane Austen's novel has their own particular favourite passages in the book, and I used many of mine in Darcy's Story. As her novel was first published in several "parts", I also used quotations from "Pride and Prejudice" to introduce each of the seven parts in my book.
Everyone who has ever read Jane Austen's novel will have their own idea of Mr Darcy's side of the story, and this book could be described as looking through the mirror of "Pride and Prejudice" from the other side. I am delighted that a story written nearly 200 years ago can still give pleasure in a very different era. I have also been glad to learn that people much more knowledgeable than I am about Jane Austen and her work have also liked the book.
I have been surprised and delighted to discover that my need to know more about Jane Austen's hero is shared by people in 37 other countries all around the world. The publishers have received many letters and emails expressing the enjoyment that so many people have found in reading "Darcys Story". It seems that complementing "Pride and Prejudice" by writing this book has satisfied a long-felt need for many readers.商品の説明をすべて表示する
挿絵がたくさん出てくるのと、１つのチャプターが短いので、どんどん読み進めることが出来ました。この本を読んだ後だと、BBCのPride and Prejudiceがまた違う視点から楽しめそうです。
