About this edition:
Well Played is a localized and modernized version of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. Considered one of the masterpieces of English literature, Pride & Prejudice is a comedy of manners, an early feminist novel and a keenly observed slice of life from the Regency period in England. It is also an enjoyable, romantic read. By retelling this story with Filipino characters and in a Filipino university setting, Well Played brings the classic novel into an accessible, contemporary space for younger readers. Well Played reinforces the universality of Austen’s characters and themes: the vagaries of courtship, social events as refined mating rituals, the reliability of first impressions and the delicacy of developing love – themes that concerned Jane Austen in the 1700s and are still relevant to readers today. It demonstrates that great stories are, at heart, universal, understandable, approachable and above all, timeless.
