From the Publisher
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in
possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."
So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's perfect
comedy of manners--one of the most popular novels of all time--that
features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy
and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited
courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues.
"Pride and Prejudice seems as vital today as ever," writes
Anna Quindlen in her introduction to this Modern Library edition.
"It is a pure joy to read." Eudora Welty agrees: "The gaiety is
unextinguished, the irony has kept its bite, the reasoning is still
sweet, the sparkle undiminished. [It is] irresistible and as nearly
flawless as any fiction could be."
This volume is the companion to the BBC television series, a lavish
production aired on the Arts and Entertainment Network.
