Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen Illustrated by Fulvia Zambon

Elizabeth Bennet is one of four sisters, all of marriageable age, and her family is being visited by a constant parade of often unsuitable suitors. Most notable among them is the handsome, conceited Mr. Darcy, whose sparring with the lively Elizabeth forms the core of one of the best-loved English-language novels of all time. Their courtship is played out among a scintillating cast of characters, including the fatuous Mr. Collins and his patroness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh; the ill-matched Mr. and Mrs. Bennet; and the unscrupulous George Wickham.

A sparkling comedy of manners, Pride and Prejudice is also a masterful portrait of love and its relationship to intelligence and good sense.
