Elizabeth Bennet is Austen''s most liberated and appealing heroine, and Pride and Prejudice has remained over most of the past two centuries Austen''s most popular novel. The story turns on the marriage prospects of the five daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, and especially on Elizabeth''s prejudice against the proud and distant Fitzwilliam Darcy. Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy that has been read as conservative and feminist, reactionary and revolutionary, rooted in the time of its composition and deliberately timeless. Robert Irvine''s introduction sets the novel in the context of the literary and intellectual history of the period, dealing with such crucial background issues as class relations in Britain, female exclusion from property and power, and the impact of the French Revolution.

The introduction and annotations have been expanded and updated for the new edition, and a new appendix of Austen''s juvenilia has been added.

Robert P. Irvine is a Reader in Scottish Literature at the University of Edinburgh.
