Pride And Prejudice
(Audio CD / Audio, Main)
Pride and Prejudice is a masterpiece of wit and perception, perfectly exposing the mannered social scene of Jane Austen's England. This was an era when young ladies were carefully groomed for matrimony and little else ...so Mrs Bennet is eager to see at least some of her five dau...ghters married off. But the varying temperaments and spirits of our heroine Elizabeth and her sisters, not to mention their precarious social standing, means the quest for love and happiness is not without setback. Meeting snobbery, prejudice and the likes of Mr Collins, Mr Wickham and a certain Mr Darcy along the way, the listener too will be swept up in a joyous tide of romance, desire and satire as relevant and entertaining today as when first published. Joanna Lumley's career has ranged from her early days as her model to her award-winning status as a fine comedy actress in Absolutely Fabulous . The ever-glamorous favourite narrates with much measure, style and humour.
