Reissue. ...Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners--one of the most popular novels of all time--that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the "most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author's works," and Eudora Welty in the twentieth century described it as "irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be."

Born the seventh child of the rector of Steventon, Hampshire, on December 16, 1775, she was educated mainly at home.

As a clergyman-s daughter from a well-connected family, she had an ample opportunity to study the habits of the middle class, the gentry, and the aristocracy.
