When Elizabeth Bennet meets handsome bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she immediately deems him proud--arrogant, conceited, and utterly obnoxious. When she later discovers that Darcy has deliberately turned another man against her beloved sister Jane, she resolves to have nothing more to do with him. In the comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen portrays Elizabeth's prejudice toward a man who has resolved to be particularly careful to hide any sign of his admiration for her--with all of the consequent misunderstandings and entertaining reconciliations readers have come to expect from one of the finest British novelists. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. „My dear Mr. Bennet,“ said his lady to him one day, „”have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?” „ Mr. Bennet replied that he had not. „But it is,“ returned she; „for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it.“ Mr. Bennet made no answer. „Do you not want to know who has taken it?“ cried his wife impatiently. „You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it.“ This was invitation enough...
Pride and Prejudice traces the life of the Bennet sisters in the Victorian times. It addresses ideas of morality, social standing of women, class divide and its idiosyncrasies through the experiences of Elizabeth Bennet, the second daughter of Mr and Mrs Bennet. All is calm and quiet in Longbourne until the summer when the mild-mannered Mr Bingley and his uptight friend Mr Darcy rent the nearby estate of Netherfield Park. Mr Bingley falls instantly for the shy, sensitive Jane, the eldest of the five Bennet girls, but sparks fly when Elizabeth and Mr Darcy meet. And so enters love, and with it comes turmoil into their young lives. Will Jane and Mr Bingley get together, despite their social differences? Will Elizabeth look beyond her first impressions of Mr Darcy? How will their choices affect their future as well as that of their sisters? This classic novel answers all this as Jane Austen skilfully weaves various themes that were quintessential to the lives of the landed gentry in early 19th century England.
