Pride and Prejudice is the best known of Austen's six novels and ranks among her finest work. As in Sense and Sensibility, its story centers on two sisters, Jane and Elizabeth Bennet. Jane falls in love early in the book with the amiable, wealthy Charles Bingley. Bingley returns her sentiments but is temporarily persuaded to abandon the romance at the urging of his friend, Mr. Darcy, who does not detect love in Jane's discreet manner. The book's true center, however, is the complex relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy. Both are intelligent and forthright, but their initial impressions blind them to the qualities in each other that will eventually form the basis for their love. Darcy is indeed proud and feels himself above the less refined country families in whose company he finds himself during his visit to Bingley. Elizabeth's mother, a vain, silly woman who is often a source of embarrassment to her daughter, is also an object of Darcy's scorn. When she overhears Darcy's assessment of her and her family, Elizabeth's own pride is wounded; she dismisses him as a proud, disagreeable man and is more than willing to believe the lies she is told about him by the charming, deceitful Wickham. For his part, Darcy's pride in his position and his family cause him at first to resist his attraction to Elizabeth and later to propose to her in a manner that she finds even more offensive than his initial hauteur.

annotations The first time Jane Austen published 'Pride and Prejudice', on January 28, 1813, she did so anonymously. The Austen family begged Jane to keep her literary inclinations secret, so Jane signed her novel as 'A Lady'. But 'Pride and Prejudice' became an editorial phenomenon. English readers wanted to know the name of that enigmatic lady, and some members of the Austen family could not resist the temptation to make public that the fashion novel was written by someone of their blood. This is how Jane Austen became a famous writer, although her lack of experience had led her to give up the rights to the novel for the ridiculous amount of 110 pounds. Poor Jane was thus deprived of the benefits of the sale of thousands of copies. Originally titled 'First Impressions' and written years before it was published, 'Pride and Prejudice' tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, second of five sisters from a family of small rural landowners, who know that their future depends on the possibility of make a good wedding When Mr. Bingley, a wealthy young man, looks at the eldest of the girls, the Bennets feel that luck is knocking on their door. Unfortunately, the unbearable family of Bingley and his friend, the proud and distant Mr. Darcy, will put obstacles in this relationship, considering it inconvenient. The judicious and realistic Elizabeth will be the only one to realize that class prejudice will end her sister's dreams, and develops a furious antipathy towards Mr. Darcy who -obviously- ends up falling at the feet of the only girl who seems Immune to his charms, his mansion and his large income.

"Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: The "darling child" of Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice was first published in 1813 and sought immediate success. It is a novel of manners and of romance. It is another one of Austen's romantic and humorous depictions of the social classes, education, marriage, and money. Fairly witty, and most intriguing for the reader as it tackles themes of reputation, family, class, and integrity. Austen's characterization, and technical mastery of the language, and her ability to present the best portray of everyday life made her novel one of the most significant works of the nineteenth century. The novel is set in rural England and follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, her hate-love story with the bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, and their friendship through the comedy of manners and the overwhelming, genuine, heartfelt feeling of the characters. Jane Austen (1775-1817): Jane Austen is an English novelist, mostly known for her satirical social criticism of the British society. Her characterization skills are one of her best qualities, especially when it comes to portraying female characters and her discussions of marriage, love, social and economic security. Austen enjoyed fame during her life, but it was only her death that she became an icon of romance novels. Her most received novels include: Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Sense and sensibility Important Quotes: "To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love..." (Page: 14) "Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." (Page: 27) ""There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense." (Page: 157) "There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me."(Page 199) "From the very beginning-from the first moment, I may almost say-of my acquaintance with you, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike; and I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry."(Page: 218) What's New in This Version: This version of the novel contains a set of new annotation that help the reader throughout their reading, encompassing: A detailed Character Map, in which the relation between the major character and the rest of the characters is pointed out. Glossary a list of vital words that are important to the understanding and the deciphering of the novel's language. A new modern Cover.

++++Annotated by OWFUndation with a biography of Jane Austen++++Pride and Prejudice is an 1813 romantic novel by Jane Austen. It charts the emotional development of the protagonist Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of the writing lies in the depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Britain.Mr. Bennet of the Longbourn estate has five daughters, but his property is inalienable intact entailed by a fee tail male, meaning that none of the girls can inherit it. His wife has no fortune, so it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well to support the others upon his death. Jane Austen's opening line, "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife", is a sentence filled with irony and playfulness. The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love, not simply for money, despite the social pressures to make a good (i.e., wealthy) match.Pride and Prejudice has long fascinated readers, consistently appearing near the top of lists of "most-loved books" among literary scholars and the general public. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, with over 20 million copies sold and paved the way for many archetypes that abound in modern literature.
