Pride & Prejudice

By Jane Austen

From the very first (and famous) opening line to the last, this witty, clever and charming classic warrants a yearly-re-read. In ‘Pride and Prejudice’, Austen created a masterpiece, and it’s always a delight to discover another layer to it.

While Mrs Bennet wishes nothing better for her daughters than the prospect of an advantageous marriage, her daughter Elizabeth thinks otherwise. When the wealthy and eligible bachelor Mr Bingley moves into the neighbourhood, he soon becomes attached to Elizabeth’s sister Jane. His companion Fitzwilliam Darcy, on the contrary, appears arrogant and conceited to Elizabeth. But she will learn the dangers of judging from first impressions… A masterful comedy of manners which told one of literature’s most enduring love stories whilst wittingly satirising English society and its social conventions.
