Description

***Illustrated. Worldwide bestseller. 20-million+ copies sold. Basis of major motion picture. ***

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is the most beloved and sophisticated of the classic romantic novels by Jane Austen (1775-1817). The book's opening lines are among the most famous ever.

The fascinating society of "landed Gentry" of nineteenth-century England is seen through the eyes of the lead characters Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Their stormy romance is the basis of the critically acclaimed movie PRIDE AND PREJUDICE starring Keira Knightley and Donald Sutherland. The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) also produced a highly regarded television mini-series.

For over two centuries, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has enthralled readers and viewers. The characters seemingly live in an idyllic paradise of great estates and mansions. Beautiful young women in long flowing gowns are courted, ever so properly, by handsome young gentlemen in tailored suits and silk top hats.

Yet, a hardened, unforgiving world is not far away. England was then still reeling from the loss of the American colonies after a disastrous and expensive war. The fortunes of even the well-to-do suffered. As in our own recession-plagued era, love can be difficult to find in uncertain times.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE reveals eternal truths. Love and honor, and an unspoken, but an ever present God (Jane Austen's father was a Protestant minister) produce a memorable result. The tale continues to capture our hearts, because the uncertain world of the now legendary lovers Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy remains our world too.
