Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen – eBook
Pride and Prejudice is the most famous of Jane Austen’s novels, and its opening is one of the most famous lines in English literature – “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Publisher: Thomas Egerton
A classic comic romance, in which the five Bennett sisters try to find that most elusive creature: a single man in possession of a large fortune.
Sparks fly when sweet, pretty Jane meets their new neighbor, Mr. Bingley, but her sister Elizabeth is most offended by his haughty friend, Mr. Darcy.
This is Austen at the height of her powers: the ironic narration, hilariously drawn supporting characters, and romantic suspense make this her most enduringly popular novel.
