A Jane Austen Quiz

As some of you may know, January 2013 marks the 200 year anniversary of the first publication of Jane Austen's very famous Pride and Prejudice. A classic in every sense, this novel has been of great value to the film industry in the many film adaptions and reworkings that have been produced over the years, from the period dramas to the looser interpretations, such as Bride and Prejudice (2004) and Bridget Jones' Diary (2001).

To mark the occasion, we have a short Jane Austen themed quiz for you! All of the pictures below are taken from theatrical film or TV movie adaptions of Jane Austen's most famous romantic novels. Can you name them all?







We'll get the answers up for you in February!
