Classic of the Month-
Pride and Prejudice -Jane Austen
Plot- Pride and Prejudice is a humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Georgian era.
The story is based on Jane Austen’s novel about five sisters – Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia Bennet – in Georgian England. Their lives are turned upside down when a wealthy young man (Mr. Bingley) and his best friend (Mr. Darcy) arrive in their neighborhood.
The story charts the emotional development of the protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgements and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of the writing lies in the depiction of manners, education, and marriage and money in the British Regency.
The book starts with the following quote:” It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”&the story starts with Mrs.Bennet wanting her daughters to be married with good fortunes.Of all the sister’s the best of them is Elizabeth Bennet, her lively mind and good looks just makes you feel closer to our protagonist.Of course ,one can simply love the mysterious Darcy. We love P&P mainly because we love Mr. Darcy. Without him, there would be far fewer P&P fans. Characters are well developed with the plot settings as well.You are sure to love it….
My favourite quote from the novel:”Vanity ,not love ,has been my folly”.
