Jane Austen Anniversary

It was 200 years ago TO THE DAY, in fact, that Jane Austen published her novel, "Pride and Prejudice".     Many of you know the story: Mr. Darcy... Elizabeth Bennet and her family... and some incidents involving money, class and marriage.

After the 7:30 news Sun (Jan 27) you can hear a conversation with two literary scholars -- and Jane Austen fans: Michelle Levy is an associate professor with the Department of English at Simon Fraser University and Alex Dick is an assistant professor with UBC's English department.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
