A perennial favorite in the Norton Critical Editions series, Pride and Prejudice is based on the 1813 first edition text, which has been thoroughly annotated for undergraduate readers.

"Backgrounds and Sources" includes biographical portraits of Austen by members of her family and by acclaimed biographers Claire Tomalin and David Nokes. Seventeen of Austen's letters—eight of them new to the Third Edition—allow readers to glimpse the close-knit society that was Austen's world, both in life and in her writing. Samples of Austen's early writing—from the epistolary Love and FriendshipA Collection of Letters—allow readers to trace her growth as a writer as well as to read her fiction comparatively.

"Criticism" features eighteen assessments of the novel by nineteenth- and twentieth-century commentators, six of them new to the Third Edition. Among them is an interview with Colin Firth on the recent BBC television adaptation of the novel. Also included are pieces by Richard Whately, Margaret Oliphant, Richard Simpson, D. W. Harding, Dorothy Van Ghent, Alistair Duckworth, Stuart Tave, Marilyn Butler, Nina Auerbach, Susan Morgan, Claudia L. Johnson, Susan Fraiman, Deborah Kaplan, Tara Goshal Wallace, Cheryl L. Nixon, David Spring, Edward Ahearn, and Donald Gray.

Also included are a Note on Money, a Chronology of Austen's life and work—new to the Third Edition—and an updated Selected Bibliography.

La Cortellesi è straordinaria. Rende questo romanzo e i suoi personaggi vivi, difficile abbandonare l'ascolto! Bravissima Cortellesi (e Jane Austen, ovviamente).

This book is my freaking jam. I love Austen's style and how she makes all the characters so realistic and ironic. It is just so modern, I can understand why, after 200 years it's still pretty up-to-date

Although it is not a thrilling, action-packed adventure, "Pride and Prejudice" surely makes you smile: while strong characters carry the drama of the story, ludicrous personalities keep the reader entertained. I really liked Mr. Darcy's character: i ...Continua

Fantastico incipit, fantastici personaggi, fantastica la scena della prima domanda di matrimonio, con relativo rifiuto!
Per me è impossibile pensare a Mr. Darcy senza pensare a Laurence Olivier, nel film del 1940 dove anche la zia Lady Catherine
