Pride and Prejudice is a famous book by the author named Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice is a classic book that many people love… that includes me. Pride and Prejudice is a book about four girls. The girls are named Jane Bennet, Elizabeth (or Lizzie) Bennet, Kitty Bennet and Lydia Bennet. The book is from Lizzie’s point-of-view.
The book begins with a new person in town. The person is named Charles Bingley. Bingley moves into a manor in the town. The four Bennet’s see Bingley as a prospect for marriage. The Bennet sisters see another person who is a catch, too. The other person is friends with Bingley. His name is Fitzwilliam Darcy. Darcy makes a bad impression on Lizzie and the girls’s mother. However, the girls still view Darcy as a well-off man who would be a catch.
The book is a romance between Lizzie and Darcy. It is also about the social dance that goes on between men and women. Lizzie has a lot of pride even though she comes from a poor family. She has prejudice against Darcy because Darcy is rich. Darcy has a lot of pride because of his rich place in British society. He has prejudice against the Bennet’s because they aren’t as well-off as him.
Pride and Prejudice is a great classic book. It is about a dance that has gone on since the beginning of time… the dance that naturally happens between men and women when they come-of-age.
I think you should pick up Pride and Prejudice if you want to read a classic book that is a challenge to read.
So, that’s it for now.
Until next time…
Always with infinite love,
