Pride and Prejudice (Vintage Classics)
No novel in English has given more pleasure than Pride and Prejudice—one of the great classics in literature. Critics in every generation reexamine and reinterpret it, but the rest of us simply fall in love with it—and with its wonderfully charming and intelligent heroine, Elizabeth Bennet.
We are captivated not only by Pride and Prejudice's romantic suspense but also by the fascinations of the world we visit in its pages. The life of the English country gentry at the turn of the nineteenth century is made as real to us as our own, not only by Jane Austen’s wit and feeling but by her subtle observation of the way people behave in society and how we are true or treacherous to each other and ourselves.
Praise for Pride and Prejudice (Vintage Classics)
"The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste."
