'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.' Thus memorably begins Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, one of the world's most popular novels. Pride and Prejudice--Austen's own 'darling child'--tells the story of fiercely independent Elizabeth Bennett, 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.Humorous 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....

A quintessential novel of manners. Fine moral intelligence and subtle psychological insight expressed in a straightforward, epigrammatic style. I read it for the first time forty years ago, and I am still half in love with Eliza Bennet.
Ενα βιβλίο που γράφτηκε το 1797 με τον τίτλο
« Πρώτες Εντυπώσεις», αναμφίβολα αντιπροσωπευτικός, διότι και οι δυο πρωταγωνιστικοί χαρακτήρες εντυπωσιάζονται λανθασμένα ο ένας για τον άλλον και χάνουν πολύτιμες στιγμές ανάμεσα τους ορμώμενοι απο φαινομενικά μειονεκτήματα και παρεξηγήσεις.
Όταν εκδίδεται το 1813 το βιβλίο τούτο έχει τον ακόμη πιο εύστοχο τίτλο « Περηφάνεια και Προκατάληψη ».

Society, with all its restrictive constructs, is one nasty piece of work.
It comes with so many silly rules, so many silly expectations. Those of social station and wealth must be seen to marry someone of the same “worth” regardless of the feelings involved; they must be seen to marry someone on their level of class structure. But what of love? What of passion? Should it be quenched because of these all-encompassing silly constructs?
Austen doesn’t think so.

If somebody had told me that I'd love a romance before I read this book, I would have laughed derisively.
In my late teens, romance was just not my cup of tea: it was meant for (yechch!) - girls. I was happily reading about those brave and hardy men who blew up German castles (during World War II) and evil Communist strongholds (after the war). The only women in those books were beautiful spies or dangerous adventuresses.
A few years later, my aunt pointed me to this book, after I had rather enjoy ...more
To summarize: Mister. Darcy.

This was truly as glorious as I remember. Every time I reread this novel, I love it more.
