Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few readers have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet. Her early determination to dislike Mr Darcy — who is quite the most handsome and eligible bachelor in the whole of English literature — is a misjudgement only matched in folly by Darcy's arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to truer feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.

Vivien Jones, in her new introduction to this Penguin Classics edition, shows how their romance is inseparable from the important social and political debates of Austen's time, and describes Pride and Prejudice as "One of the most perfect, most pleasurable and most subtle — and therefore, perhaps, most dangerously persuasive — of romantic love stories."

Synopsis:

The romantic clash of two opinionated young people provides the sustaining theme of Austen's 1813 masterwork. Spirited Elizabeth Bennet is one of a family of five daughters. With no male heir, the Bennet estate must someday pass to their priggish cousin Collins. Therefore, the girls must marry well--and the arrogant bachelor Mr. Darcy is Elizabeth's elusive match. Reprint.
