Thus memorably begins &&LB&&RJane Austen&&L/B&&R's &&LI&&RPride and Prejudice&&L/I&&R, one of the world's most popular novels. &&LI&&RPride and Prejudice&&L/I&&RAusten's own 'darling child'tells the story of fiercely independent Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters who must marry rich, as she confounds the arrogant, wealthy Mr. Darcy. What ensues is one of the most delightful and engrossingly readable courtships known to literature, written by a precocious Austen when she was just twenty-one years old.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RHumorous and profound, and filled with highly entertaining dialogue, this witty comedy of manners dips and turns through drawing-rooms and plots to reach an immensely satisfying finale.
