It is a truth universally acknowledged that a large body of work needs ranking.

Though Jane Austen only completed six novels during her lifetime, her words have spawned countless adaptations. That list is about to grow once again – PBS just announced Andrew Davies will be adapting Austen's Sanditon, the author's final novel, left incomplete when she died.

In honor of the upcoming miniseries, we've made this very objective, completely accurate list, which will hopefully help you navigate the vast number of Austen adaptations available. And, because we're dealing strictly with adaptations, you won't find Austen-related movies like Becoming Jane or Austenland.
