Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s classic novel of romance and wit, was originally published in 1813. It has since become one of her most beloved works.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife,” and the Miss Bennets are poised to make their matches. Indomitable Elizabeth Bennet is determined to marry for love, but can she find someone who will make her happy, someone to equal her in spirit and wit? From laughable Mr. Collins to genial Mr. Wickham, Elizabeth faces the challenges of Regency-era romance with fortitude. But none are so vexing to her as those brought by the condescending and resolute, and wealthy, Mr. Darcy.
The obstacles of pride and prejudice threaten the happy endings of all involved. But hearts sometimes soften and opinions can change. The Bennet sisters might still attain their hopes and desires. And Elizabeth may yet find a man who can win her hand and, more importantly, her heart.
