DESCRIPTION

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was first published two-hundred years ago in 1813. Despite now celebrating its bi-centenary the book continues to very popular with modern readers and to-date has sold over 20 million copies.

Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, the second of five daughters of a country gentleman who live together in comfort in the fictional town of Meryton, near London. Pride and Prejudice provides an enduringly popular insight into the social highs and lows of love, marriage, manners, morality and social standing in early 19th century rural England.

Jane Austen was born on 16 December 1775 and has become one of the most widely read authors of romantic literary fiction in the English language. Not only has she brought delight to readers of all ages over the last two centuries, but her social observation and witty   commentary have become of great interest to academics and historians.

Austen was educated by her father and her elder brothers as she grew up within a close family on the periphery of the English landed gentry. Her family were her greatest support and they encouraged her writing, which enabled to experiment with voice and form, helping her to develop the literary style. During her lifetime Austen published four novels, Sense and Sensibility in 1811, Pride and Prejudice in 1813, Mansfield Park in 1814 and Emma in 1816.

Jane Austen died on 18 July 1817 at the age of forty-one. She had completed two other manuscripts, which were published posthumously, in 1818, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. She had started work on a seventh novel, Sanditon, but passed away before she could complete the manuscript.

This eBook brings together three of her novels in a single volume, which are certain to provide any reader with hours of delight and pleasure, as they enjoy her literary style, humour and observation of early 17th century English society.
