Feelish Meme-ish: Jane Austen

Ah, Jane Austen. Outside of Shakespeare and Dickens, there may not be a pre-pulp era writer whose works have inspired more film (and television) adaptations. (And really, the newspaper serials of the Victorian era in which Dickens thrived were pretty proto-pulpy.) This is especially impressive when one considers how tightly focused in plot and genre—Austen-ian is practically a genre in itself—the books are.

Of course, anything that influential is the stuff that fruitful Feeling Meme-ish-es are made of. You might not find all six of her books represented here, but it wasn’t tough to find plenty of fan-made efforts derived from the movie versions. So, in honor of the soon-to-be-released Pride and Prejudice and Zombies—the most unusual iteration of Austen’s work, yet—let’s take a walk through Darcy-Emma-et-al Land. (And feel free to share any of your favorites in the comments below.)
