Now let us jump to the 1930s.  This cover was printed in 1938.  The Great Depression overwhelmed the country along with the country on the brink of entering another war.  So much of the population lived in poverty so this cover suggests a cheaper option for the public to read.  As for the drawing on the front page, its from one of my favorite plot changes, Elizabeth riding to Netherfield.  I don’t think it accurately depicts the novel as a whole but shows the idea of the daughter leaving home.  Even though Elizabeth left to visit her sister the scene could mean much more in the fact that Elizabeth finds her love in Darcy.  This is a good cover considering the economic hardship of the time.
