Pg. 99: Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"

The current feature at the Page 99 Test: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Donald J. Gray, Culbertson Chair Emeritus of English at Indiana University, is the editor of the Norton Critical Edition of Pride and Prejudice. He applied the Page 99 Test to the 1813 edition of Austen's novel as well as to the Norton Critical Edition.

Read about his findings.

Last month, another Austen scholar, Deidre Lynch, wrote the Page 99 Test entry for Persuasion, which she edited for the Oxford World's Classics Series.
