This thesis project contains the study of four works of fan fiction based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Through analysis of authorial intent, attribution to the source material, and faithfulness to the original in plot, theme, characterization, and style, this paper finds a correlation between the level of transformation and the work's commercial success.
