  1. I hope you post this again when you get some comments. I’ll start.

    I don’t think Pride and Prejudice measures up against some of the other texts here for relevance, especially a post colonial analysis of Heart of Darkness or a commentary of technology and gender roles that Frankenstein can support. I do support 1984 yielding votes.

    • I have to say I was a little surprised that P and P got so many votes, though people do love their Austen.
