Description
English literature's most beloved comedy of manners
Few have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet. Her early determination to dislike Mr. Darcy is a prejudice only matched by the folly of his arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to true feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.
'Pride and Prejudice has always been the most popular of Jane Austen's books … with its good humoured comedy, its sunny heroine, its dream denouement' (Claire Tomalin)
'These modern editions are to be strongly recommended for their scrupulous texts, informative notes and helpful introductions'.
