Pride and Prejudice and the art of conversation | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBCSkip to content. When we talk to each other we reveal a great deal about how we think and how we feel about the subject at hand and the world around us. The conversations we read communicate that a character might be feeling optimistic, or perhaps rather sad and concerned. Austen even uses conversation to show how we can be both selfish and generous in how we speak with each other. The conversations in Pride and Prejudice illustrate the themes of the novel and also give us an impression of how people would have spoken to each other two hundred years ago. Some of the ways in which people spoke then might be quite different to how we speak English today; but, in other ways, we might be able to identify many similarities.

The past year has seen a slew of retellings of Pride And Prejudice , which Austen finished the first draft of this month years ago. These fresh versions recast the classic enemies-to-lovers story between the strong-willed Elizabeth Bennet and the uptight Mr Darcy in diverse ethnic communities, from Pakistan to an Afro-Latino neighbourhood in Brooklyn. Canadian author Uzma Jalaluddin, whose debut novel Ayesha At Last is set in a close-knit Muslim community in Toronto, tells The Straits Times over the telephone: "I think a lot of the people who are writing Pride And Prejudice remixes are responding to the fact that Jane Austen's humour was always gentle and inclusive. Oftentimes for marginalised, racialised people, the only times we appear in books is when something sensational is happening, not the small moments that define our everyday lives. The hero of her novel, which had its film rights scooped up by American production company Pascal Pictures, is the conservative Khalid Mirza, who expects to meet his future wife through a match arranged by his mother. But he falls for free-spirited slam poet Ayesha Shamsi, even as they clash over religious observance and women's freedom. Jalaluddin, 40, also wanted to explore Islamophobia through Khalid, who experiences workplace discrimination because he chooses to wear white robes and a skullcap to the office.
