The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Lizzie Bennet is now on YouTube! A new vlog, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” documents the life of 24-year-old grad student Lizzie Bennet. The project was created by Hank Green and Bernie Su, and is quite expansive! There’s a Tumblr, as well as Twitter accounts and Facebook pages, and this is the official site. Rather a clever take on it, isn’t it? The whole thing is a spot-on, very original (and hilarious) transferal of Pride and Prejudice onto modern society. And despite the update, it retains the spirit of both the original characters and story.

There are seven episodes out so far–you can watch them all here. I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with Mr. Collins, Lady Catherine, Wickham, and all the rest! The possibilities abound–and are sure to be entertaining.
