Welcome Back North House!
Cheers to 2017! Who knows what circumstances will surface throughout this unknown journey. I only hope for it to be full of abundant blessings, prosperous efforts, and victorious conquests.
Well, for the blog this week, I decided to expose to all of you a brief summary of the relevance of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to the modern world. Since we will soon venture in reading it, I selected an article by James Al-Mudallal titled “Why Pride and Prejudice is as relevant today as it ever was” to provide a glimpse of what to expect and guide the reader to consider other than the “elephant in the room.” Pride and Prejudice is well-renowned for its allusive notion of a perfect romance, but is that all? Is it the ideal relationship, or the shades of gloom that enthrall the reader?
Prompt: What qualities of this novel do you believe have fascinated and engrossed readers? The alluring romance? Perhaps its “multi-layers?” Other qualities?
