pride and prejudice

I’d like to share my impressions on the book I’ve recently read. It is “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen.

Jane Austen is one of the most widely read authors of English literature. She wrote romantic fiction with historical realism and biting social commentary.

“Pride and Prejudice” is a classic novel  about life in England during the late 18th century.

I think the plot is very witty and amusing and focuses on the personalities and actions of female characters as they strive to gain happiness. The novel tells the story of the Bennet family. Mr Bennet is an English gentleman living in Hartfordshire with his wife and five daughters. The Bennets are not from the upper class, and their house will be inherited by a distant cousin if Mr. Bennet dies. The five Bennet sisters  have been raised by their mother with one purpose in life: finding a husband.  The book paints a clear picture of how women who lacked their own fortune had to  marry for economic security and social status.

The book tells the story of a complicated love between two very different personalities: Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth misjudges a man upon rumor and appearance, but finds out that she is wrong.  Mr. Darcy is rich and proud but falls in love with a woman beneath his class. They could overcome their own pride and prejudice.

I love the characters, they are beautifully written. They are so realistic and full of life. Elizabeth, with her wit and humour, is my favorite because she is so independent and spirited. She refuses to marry for any other reason than love.

Jane Austen’s books are so well-loved and timeless because she wrote about subjects that will always be a natural part of being human.

I admired the book, its plot, the characters and the style. What is more, the book is beautifully illustrated.

If you like good classic literature, a good love story, and humorous characters, you’ll enjoy reading Pride and Prejudice. I recommend you to read it.
