Three classics of English literature in one single volume.
Pride and Prejudice: The novel centers on Elizabeth Bennet, the
second of the five daughters of a country gentleman. Jane Bennet,
the eldest daughter, is distinguished by the kindness of her
attitudes; Elizabeth Bennet, the second daughter, shares her
father's keen wit and occasionally sarcastic outlook; Mary is
studious, devout and aspires to be musical; Kitty, the fourth
sister follows where her youngest sister leads, while Lydia is
flirtatious and unrestrained.
Mr Darcy is the male protagonist of the novel. Twenty-eight
years old and unmarried, Mr Darcy is also the wealthy owner of the
famous family estate of Pemberley in Derbyshire. He makes a poor

of English literature, it received mixed reviews when first
published, and was considered controversial because its depiction
of mental and physical cruelty was so unusually stark.In the second
half of the 19th century, Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre was
considered the best of the Brontë sisters' works, but later critics
argued that Wuthering Heights was superior.
