Good morning Just Jane 1813 readers. Before I post Volume 2 this week, which will probably take place on Thursday, I wanted to share a multimedia timeline that I created as a wrap-up to our first volume of “Pride and Prejudice.” The chronology of the timeline is based on David M. Shapard’s book, “The Annotated Pride and Prejudice,” and includes the major events of volume one with the dates that have been approximated to the best of scholar’s abilities. As you are aware, scholars debate about the actual years that they story takes place during; however, Mr. Shapard’s book, which I have been using for many of our chapters, asserts that the 1811-1812 years are the years that they believe the story takes place, so those are the years that the events of this timeline are based upon. Therefore, this review of volume one is around dates from the story and not a chapter-by-chapter review.
The timeline can be viewed on a computer, a tablet and a mobile device, such as a phone. Where you see the play symbol, feel free to play the brief (under five minutes) videos that accompany each event. The trailer made by a fan on the first slide is my favorite trailer ever made for this adaptation. I hope you love it too!
If you haven’t joined us yet this year, just check out the timeline and join us for volume 2 this week. I’d love to hear from more readers each week, but I know some of you prefer to just view the posts and come back each week without leaving a comment.
This is my first multimedia timeline creation. Please feel free to send me suggestions and any other kinds of feedback to help make it even better for us. It’s been a really great skill to learn and for anyone who teaches or needs to complete these kinds of presentations for work and/or school commitments, check out Knightlab for this free multimedia tool, as well as a few other multimedia tools that they also offer.
