Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen’s most perennially popular novel. The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, who misjudge, then challenge and change each other, is also a novel about the search for happiness and self- knowledge in a world of strict social rules, where a woman must marry well to survive. It is brimming with Austen’s characteristic playfulness and comic irony.
