A courtship is a journey of discovery... ...but what do we know of the official betrothal of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet? We may assume there were awkward social events to navigate, tedious wedding arrangements to negotiate, and Bingley's toplofty sisters to accommodate. How did Darcy and Elizabeth manage these travails, and each other? Longbourn to London is not a Pride and Prejudice "what if," nor is it a sequel. Rather, it is an expansion of the betrothal of Jane Austen's favorite couple. We follow Lizzy's journey from spirited maiden scampering about the fields of Hertfordshire to nervous, blushing bride in Mayfair, where she learns the unexpected joys of marriage to a man as willing to be teased as she is to tease him. Join us as IPPY award-winning author Linda Beutler (2013 Silver Medal, Independent Publishers Awards, for The Red Chrysanthemum) imagines the betrothal and early honeymoon of Jane Austen's greatest couple. Includes mature content.

An analytic and historical perspective of literary texts to understand the position of domestic workers in South Africa More than a million black South African women are domestic workers. Precariously situated between urban and rural areas,rich and poor, white and black, these women are at once intimately connected and at a distant remove from the families they serve. Ena Jansen shows that domestic worker relations in South Africa were shaped by the institution of slavery, establishing social hierarchies and patterns of behavior that persist today. LikeFamily is an updated version of the award-winning Soos familie (2015) and the highly-acclaimed 2016 Dutch translation, Bijna familie.

This book focuses on modern theatrical adaptations that rework classic plays in new British and Irish settings. It explores these shifted national contexts and examines what they might reveal about the political and cultural climate of the new setting. In examining the modern setting alongside the country of the original text, it also reveals fascinating resonances between two different national contexts. The book discusses five British and Irish playwrights and their current adaptations, examining well-known dramatists such as Martin McDonagh, Sarah Kane and Brian Friel, while analysing some of their less well-known plays, offering a novel examination of the adaptation process. The book further provides an insightful commentary on some significant events of the twentieth century in Britain and Ireland, such as the historic Labour victory of 1945 and scandals in the Royal Family since the 1990s. This book will appeal to theatre and performance enthusiasts, as well as students and scholars of both theatre and adaptation.

From the apparently simple adaptation of a text into film, theatre or a new literary work, to the more complex appropriation of style or meaning, it is arguable that all texts are somehow connected to a network of existing texts and art forms. In this new edition Adaptation and Appropriation explores: multiple definitions and practices of adaptation and appropriation the cultural and aesthetic politics behind the impulse to adapt the global and local dimensions of adaptation the impact of new digital technologies on ideas of making, originality and customization diverse ways in which contemporary literature, theatre, television and film adapt, revise and reimagine other works of art the impact on adaptation and appropriation of theoretical movements, including structuralism, post-structuralism, postcolonialism, postmodernism, feminism and gender studies the appropriation across time and across cultures of specific canonical texts, by Shakespeare, Dickens, and others, but also of literary archetypes such as myth or fairy tale. Ranging across genres and harnessing concepts from fields as diverse as musicology and the natural sciences, this volume brings clarity to the complex debates around adaptation and appropriation, offering a much-needed resource for those studying literature, film, media or culture.

After Mr. Darcy’s insulting proposal of marriage at Rosings, Elizabeth Bennet returns to Longbourn. Mr. Atherton, a handsome gentleman newly arrived in Meryton, captures her attention – although she hopes that he and Jane will suit. Ever since Mr. Bingley deserted Jane, and broke her heart, Lizzy has wished for something or someone to spark Jane out of her despondency, and Mr. Atherton might be the one to do so! But when Darcy warns Lizzy that Mr. Atherton is not the charming, debonair gentleman everyone in Meryton thinks he is, she does not believe him, and accuses him of jealousy. Darcy is determined to save Lizzy from Mr. Atherton’s designs – for it is not Jane he is attracted to, but Lizzy herself! – and finds proof that he was right about Mr. Atherton all along. But when Lizzy realizes her feelings for Darcy have changed since his proposal at Rosings, and she has fallen in love with him, Lydia elopes with Wickham! Can Darcy save the day? Or will he take Lizzy and her whole family in disgust once more and return to Pemberley – alone? This is a Pride and Prejudice Variation novella of 33,000 words.

Highwaymen, a mysterious hero and a case of mistaken identity… After visiting her aunt and uncle in London, Elizabeth Bennet is traveling back home to Longbourn with her sister, Jane. A broken wheel has extended their journey but they do not wish to spend the night at an inn and choose to travel into the night instead—a decision that nearly costs them as they encounter highwaymen on the road! A dark stranger comes to their rescue just in time. He is clearly a gentleman, but not one either of the sisters has seen before. He escorts Elizabeth and Jane to their home and disappears into the night. But who was he? At home, the sisters discover that the nearby estate of Netherfield has recently been let by a wealthy gentleman. Could he have been their saviour? The description of this ‘Mr. Bingley’ does not sound entirely accurate to Elizabeth, but who else could the mystery man have been? Rescued by Mr. Darcy is a full-length, sweet and clean regency romance novel that is suitable for all lovers of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

After a shrieking, nerve-stricken Mrs. Bennet discovers them in this compromising position, Darcy is forced to make Lydia an offer of marriage.A few weeks later, Bingley returns from London to discover that a heartbroken Jane has accepted an offer from Collins. Bingley instead proposes to Elizabeth, who accepts with the hope of reuniting him with Jane.Now Darcy must cope with jealousy toward Bingley and a fiancée who longs to get her hands on the grand estate of "Pembleton" (or is it "Peckersly?"). Lydia, in turn, is jealous that Wickham has proposed to Charlotte Lucas--who (much to Wickham's dismay) does not find red coats nearly as appealing as clerical collars.Although Darcy yearns for Elizabeth, he feels honor bound by his promise to Lydia.

How can Darcy and Elizabeth unravel this tangle of hilariously misbegotten betrothals and reach their happily ever after?This is a novel of 62,000 words with an HEA.
