Publication & Prejudice: An Online Exhibit

Publication & Prejudice is an online exhibit curated by Emma Brodey (Class of ’21) for the Yale Beinecke Library. The exhibit presents the world of P+P via 20 different publications of the novel that include pastiches and reminagingings. While the story remains more or less the same, the different versions prevent a holistic view of the editors, or writers, interpretation of the original. Sometimes all it takes is a different edit to convey the same scene in a wholly new way.

You can watch a video interview with Brodey here. The interview also includes a list of all 20 books used in the exhibition.

The exhibit contains everything from the power of the ampersand to misplaced manuscripts. There is also more nuanced information on AUsten and her world.

The exhibition is free.
