Pride and Prejudice (Paperback)
Austen’s timeless romantic classic, follows the lives of the ve Bennett sisters, who live in a time where an advantageous mar- riage and social status are considered a fundamental for any woman to stand a fair chance at life. Set at the turn of the 19th century, Pride and Prejudice catches a perfect glimpse not only of a time when women were socially and economically dependent solely on their marital status, but also as an age of enlightenment and witness of the French Revolution.
Pride and Prejudice is a romantic novel of manners written by Jane Austen in 1813. The novel follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist of the book who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. Its humour lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage, and money during the Regency era in Great Britain.
Mr Bennet of Longbourn estate has five daughters, but his property is entailed and can only be passed to a male heir. His wife also lacks an inheritance, so his family will be destitute upon his death. Thus it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well to support the others, which is a motivation that drives the plot. The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love, not for money or social prestige, despite the communal pressure to make a wealthy match.
Pride and Prejudice has consistently appeared near the top of lists of "most-loved books" among literary scholars and the reading public. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, with over 20 million copies sold, and has inspired many derivatives in modern literature. For more than a century, dramatic adaptations, reprints, unofficial sequels, films, and TV versions of Pride and Prejudice have portrayed the memorable characters and themes of the novel, reaching mass audiences. The 2005 film Pride & Prejudice is the most recent film adaptation that closely represents the book.

“I have read Pride and Prejudice several times, and still love Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy! Maybe, it has something to do with how my husband and I began our relationship. I did not like him my h, as I thought him much to bold, but gradually he grew on me. I did fall in love with him, and now have been mar- ried 35 years. We all want our Mr. Darcy. I love all of the Jane Austen books, but this is still the best!” Sally
“Jane Austen is such a lovely writer. You can easily fall in love with her characters. I can never put down one of her books until I’m done with the last page.” ERB
