Abstract/Description: This thesis deals with film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This work examines how this particular novel has been translated into film and the issues that arise from changing media. This study focuses on five different films [Pride and Prejudice (1980), Pride and Prejudice (1995), Pride and Prejudice (2005), Bride and Prejudice (2004) and Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)] and their relationship to the book and adaptation theory. To provide the reader with a greater understanding of adaptation theory, this thesis will include a section briefly outlining current adaptation studies followed by in-depth analyses of each film in comparison to the novel and theory.
