The Monday Poll: Best Pride and Prejudice Retelling
Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we asked which parody of a YA book you thought was best, and we have a tie! With 28% of the vote each, Bored of the Rings: A Parody of J.R.R. Tolkien’s the Lord of the Rings by Harvard Lampoon and The Hunger But Mainly Death Games: A Parody by Bratness Everclean came out on top. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
Erin Daly’s post last week on unconventional Jane Austen adaptations got us thinking, so this week, we want to know which retelling of Pride and Prejudice you think is best. Vote in the poll below, or leave us a comment if you’ve omitted your favorite. And share with us, too, what you think makes for a good retelling. How faithful should the story be? The characters’ names? The themes? What’s important to bring along and what can be left behind?
