Now that we’re in the middle of winter and we are all getting cabin fever, it’s time to turn to YouTube for some entertainment!
Web series have been popular for awhile covering everything from make-up tutorials to unboxing, so it seems ripe that there would be retellings of Austen and Brontë’s works and behold, there is! Below you’ll find modern adaptations of four of Austen’s works, one Jane Eyre, and a quick summary and analysis of Pride and Prejudice just in case you have forgotten.
Word to the wise each of the series runs between 75 – 100+ episodes but each of the episodes are 2 – 4 minutes long. This should keep you plenty entertained during those slow days at work.
(I will recommend you start with The Lizzy Bennet Diaries since those are the most well known as well as popular.)
The Lizzy Bennet Diaries (Pride & Prejudice)
Autobiography of Jane Eyre
Emma Approved (Emma)
Northbound (Northanger Abbey)
Elinor and Marianne take Barton (Sense & Sensibility)
Pride & Prejudice – Thug Notes Summary and Analysis
Don’t let the name fool you. “Dr. Sparky Sweets” gives a great summary and really thought out analysis of the book, so if you’re not adverse to some strong language, definitely check this out.
