About the Book
Austens best-loved comedy of manners about the class-conscious Victorian English portrays the civilized romantic sparring between the opinionated Elizabeth and the proud Mr. Darcy.
From the Publisher
The provincial Bennet family, home to five unmarried daughters is turned upside down when a wealthy bachelor moves in nearby. Mr. Bingley enhances his instant popularity by hosting a ball and taking an interest in the eldest Bennet daughter Jane. Meanwhile, Mr. Darcy, Bingley's even wealthier friend, makes himself equally unpopular by his aloof disdain of country manners. Yet he is drawn in spite of himself to the spirited and intelligent Elizabeth Bennet, who proves to be his match in both wit and pride. Their sparkling repartee is a splendid performance of civilized sparring infused with unacknowledged romantic tension.
About the Author
Jane Austen (1775-1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family's amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle class families with wry observation, a delicate irony and a good humored wit.
