Pride and Prejudice

Austen’s most celebrated novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, a bright, lively young woman with four sisters, and a mother determined to marry them to wealthy men. At a party near the Bennets’ home in the English countryside, Elizabeth meets the wealthy, proud Fitzwilliam Darcy. Elizabeth initially finds Darcy haughty and intolerable, but circumstances continue to unite the pair. Mr. Darcy finds himself captivated by Elizabeth’s wit and candor, while her reservations about his character slowly vanish. The story is as much a social critique as it is a love story, and the prose crackles with Austen’s wry wit.

About the author

The daughter of a well-to-do family in the English countryside, Austen began writing as an adolescent, and went on to become one of the most widely read authors in the history of English literature. Her novels often reflect the social and familial customs brought to bear on the development of romantic love, and her work is noted for its caustic irony and sly observations. Austen’s writing marks a crucial literary transition between 18th-century sentimentalism and 19th-century realism.
