Delightfully illuminating the foibles of English society, Pride & Prejudice follows the Bennett family and the men they marry--or avoid marrying. Jane Austen wove a compelling, witty, and altogether brilliant satirical love-story that weaves together the pressure to secure a decent standard of living while attempting to retain some measure of control over future happiness. Part of the Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions Collection, this edition of The Scarlet Letter features fantastic new cover art designed by fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo.
Format: Paperback Number of Pages: 352 Vendor: Penguin Classics Dimensions: 8.52 X 5.58 X 0.92 (inches)
An iconic novel dressed in a fierce design by acclaimed fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo
