Product Description

"It is truth universally acknowleged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife" So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners - one of the most popular novels of all time - that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of 18th century drawing room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian Georgre Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the "most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author's works," and Eudora Welty in the 20th century described it as "irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be."

Publisher's Description

Introduction by Anna Quindlen
Commentary by Margaret Oliphant, George Saintsbury, Mark Twain, A. C. Bradley, Walter A. Raleigh, and Virginia Woolf
 
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners—one of the most popular novels of all time—that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the "most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author’s works," and Eudora Welty in the twentieth century described it as "irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be."

    Jane Austen is my all time favorite author. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book. The characters, especially Lizzy and Darcy, are fully developed. They are intelligent, full of life, and very funny. Everyone, male or female, should read Pride and Prejudice! I've read it 6 times at least, and I glean something new each time. If you love comedy, romance, or suspense, it has something for you!

    It's a delightful book for one who enjoys wordy language, surprises and suspense, as well as a diverse variety of characters. One of the things that most intrigued and perhaps surprised me was the frankness of not only the characters, but the author herself. I sometimes think of people and more specifically women in history, as not being allowed to speak unless it's of extreme importance and unoffending. In this book the people (and, as I said before, Jane Austen) are painfully honest, sometimes with shame, sometimes without. Some of what is said is without thought or is strictly conjecture, in which case it is later regretted. But other things that are said are so true and seemingly wise. I found that the characters often said what I have before thought but been unable to put into words. Another thing that surprised me about this book is how much it relates to our every day lives, and yet this was written in another century, another culture. The best way I can describe this book is practical and down to earth. It is not overly romantic in my opinion, but I think it gives a clear picture of two very important things that are essential to a lifelong partnership, be it in marriage or friendship; respect and admiration. I don't mean to say that this book has no emotion, because that is certainly not true. I must admit that before I read it I thought it was a rather stiff and formal book. I was pleasantly surprised to find it full of expressive people and a variety of feelings.

    This is by far one of my favorite books. I loved it so much. Jane Austen was such a wonderful writer. She knew exactly what the reader wanted in a book and gave it to them!
