"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

«Sometimes the last person on earth you want to be with is the one person you can't be without.»


Remarkable Jane Austen’s "favorite child" has been worrying hearts of millions of readers around the world for three century. I won’t bring myself to call "Pride and Prejudice" women's novel for two reasons. First, Jane Austen wasn’t a typical woman of her time (at least because she was a female writer).

Second, the book is impregnated with subtle intellect and a brilliant, fine and pervasive irony that colors all of the events, all the features, all the reflections in a very special tone (which does great honor to the author). I would call this literary work an intelligent novel, because the inherent wit and irony are embedded in the romantic atmosphere of England milestone ages XVIII-XIX.

So, what’s the dear Jane’s story? Parents of five Bennet’s sisters are anxious to successfully give their daughters in marriage. That is why regular life of a solid and reputable family is turned upside down when the young gentleman - Mr. Bingley settles down next door  ... Of course, among friends of the new neighbour there are a lot of refined aristocrats, who aren’t averse to chatting up charming sisters.

However, things aren’t so simple. Headstrong Elizabeth meets a Bingley’s friend -  hansome and arrogant Mr. Darcy, and between them ignites serious confrontation that could lead to love, and hate... The Novel "Pride and Prejudice" – isn’t just a story about love. It’s about the strength of family ties, of a sense of duty, honor, greed and hypocrisy, the ability to recognize their mistakes and errors. It’s a novel that doesn’t only encourage readers to the analysis and reflection, and doesn’t let them get bored because of its really subtle humor and tender romance.
