In vain have we struggled. It will not do. Our feelings will not be repressed. You must allow us to tell you how ardently stoked we are that the full text of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is now on Rap Genius.
Pride and Prejudice. On Rap Genius. The greatest romance novel ever written, on the greatest hip-hop site in the world. Decked out with vintage watercolor illustrations, clips from the BBC and Keira Knightley adaptations, and much more to come. The novel turns 200 years old this year, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to toss it on the site and let everyone—rap fans, literary scholars, the girl who laid down this “Jane Austen Is My Homegirl” track—take a shot at explaining it for people 200 years from now.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that this is awesome.
