began writing the novel which later became Pride and Prejudice
in October of 1796 and finished it by August of the following
year; she was then twenty-one years old. Little is known of this
early version of the story beyond its original title: First Impressions.
No copy of that original is known to exist. Three months after
Miss Austen completed work on the book, her father offered it
to a publisher in the hope that it would make it into print. The
publisher refused without ever having seen the manuscript.
for all of her admirers, whether Austen was discouraged or not
by her first rejection, she continued to write; though, it was
not until the winter of 1811, fully fourteen years after finishing
First Impressions, that she again picked up that manuscript and
began revising it into the version we know today as Pride and
Prejudice. This occurred in the wake of her first publishing success--the
publication of Sense and Sensibility on 30 October 1811. Pride
and Prejudice was far more fortunate than its earlier incarnation;
it was accepted for publication and was presented to the world
on 28 January 1813.
name was never attached to any of her published novels during
her lifetime, and the title page of Pride and Prejudice read only:
BY THE AUTHOR OF "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY."
