9780199535569: Pride and Prejudice (Oxford World's Classics)

Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighborhood, the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain, and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy with seriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. This new edition includes a new introduction, updated notes, and new appendices onsocial rank and dancing in 19th-century England.

Review:

Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character, who if provoked is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp -- but always polite -- 18th century wit. The point is, you spend the whole book absolutely fixated on the critical question: will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy hook up?

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2008. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Pride And Prejudice is the story of Elizabeth Bennet, who was born into a family of five daughters. It depicts her life through various stages such as adolescence, marriage, and beyond, reflecting the lives of people in England and the state of the English society of the nineteenth century. The book is spread over 61 chapters and its title is said to have been inspired by the 1782 novel Cecilia, which features the term in one of its passages. It has managed to retain the interest of the British literary circle for the impact it has made on several generations. Two movies have been made based on this novel. The themes explored include marriage, class, money, and learning. The style of writing is narrative and is in the third person. In essence, this classic is a social comedy bordering on satire. The lead character, Elizabeth Bennet, is witty, charming, lively, and most of all, strong. The interaction between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, the male lead of the story, is one of the highlights of the book. Their volatile relationship takes the center stage in the storyline. Pride and Prejudice has sold as many as 20 million copies. On the occasion of its 200th anniversary in 2013, two celebratory monographs namely Celebrating Pride And Prejudice: 200 Years Of Jane Austen?s Masterpiece and Celebrating Pride And Prejudice: 200 Years Of Jane Austen?s Darling Child were released. Printed Pages: 377. Bookseller Inventory # 101405
