I Do: Historicizing Marriage and Courtship in Jane Austen’s Novels Emma and Pride and Prejudice and Their Many Adaptations 

Project Description: 

Jane Austen’s Emma and Pride & Prejudice are yoked by their treatments of social class, valuing vanity and status, and marriage, progressing beyond transactional marriage. Austen’s novels are widely known to be progressive in their ideas of love and marriage, and I am curious to see how ideals of marriage and courtship have changed in their adaptations as the idea of a love match marriage in the contemporary age is more common. Therefore, in my studies I will ascertain whether Austen’s original intention of marriage permeates the modern concept of marriage in the adaptations of her works.
