Notes

Description
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." With this famous declaration, Jane Austen launches into the story of the five Bennet sisters, a story that on first reading is full of suspense, surprise and, ultimately, satisfaction, and which on re-reading commands a deeper admiration for the author's remarkable skill in managing a deceptively complex plot to its triumphant conclusion. First published in 1813, and Austen's most popular novel in her own lifetime, Pride and Prejudice has since been widely recognised as one of the finest novels in the English language.
Description
In early nineteenth-century England, a spirited young woman copes with the suit of a snobbish gentleman, and the romantic entanglements of her four sisters.
