Synopsis

One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'

'The best-loved book by our best-loved novelist' Independent

With its 'light and bright and sparkling' dialogue, its romantic denouement and its lively heroine, Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's most perennially popular novel. The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, who misjudge, then challenge and change each other, is also a novel about the search for happiness and self- knowledge in a world of strict social rules, where a woman must marry well to survive.

Edited with an introduction and notes by VIVIEN JONES

Fascinating
My favourite story of all time. How can one rival the elegance of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'? A fascinating insight into Georgian society.
