The Penguin English Library Edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

'No sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes ...'

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

Editorial Reviews

"I love the wonderful and spirited Lizzie Bennett, with her wit and humour. "

– The Guardian

Behind that simple premise, Pride and Prejudice is surprisingly iconoclastic as much as comforting, an unputdownable read that challenges perceptions, and subtly marks a line in feminist history and thought. Here, the ladies – as described by Jane Austen – are firmly in charge.

– Victoria Lambert (The Telegraph)
