Pride and Prejudice (Paperback, New edition)

By Austen, Jane

Rejection, regret and realizationa not every love story unfolds this way, but that's what makes Pride and Prejudice unforgettable.One of the most beloved books of all time, Pride and Prejudice -Jane Austen's most popular book- has been resonating with readers since it was first p...ublished in 1813 and has been adapated many times for television, movies, and books.When headstrong and independent Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, is required to find a wealthy husband, her encounter with the arrogant Mr. Darcy leads to one of the most entertaining and satisfying courtships ever imagined. Beyond the romance, Pride and Prejudice is a book full of humor and wit that is also a commentary on upper-class social manners at the turn of the nineteenth century.Even though it is concerned with love and marriage, the novel is a rejection of Romanticism, a popular way of imagining the world at that time. Austen preferred to highlight the rational abilities of her characters and not portray them as completely controlled by their emotions. However, the people in the book aren't robots, and Austen shows universal situations in a perfectly clear light--embarrassment when someone is foolish, the nervous feeling of falling in love, and the chagrin caused by making a big mistake.Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue, and realism support character development and make Pride and Prejudice a pure pleasure to read. No fan, or potential fan, will want to pass up this elegantly designed, cloth-bound, portable edition.
