Jane Austen’sbeloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is atruth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of agood fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turnsof a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama thatensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennetfamily home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sendsthe socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is findingsuitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.
The book’smain character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikinglymodern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations ortransform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves aremarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession withmoney, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthylove story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romanticcomedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn thepages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t theyovercome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make ahappily-ever-after connection?
