For over 150 years, Pride And Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. It begins as Mrs. Bennet's attempts to marry off her five daughters, then, the haughty and wealthy Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy comes along. She annoys him, which is how we know they must one day marry. This sparkling comedy of manners features splendidly civilized sparring between Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet, as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of 18th-century drawing-room intrigues. As the characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, Jane Austen's radiantly caustic wit and keen observation sparkle.
