Pride and Prejudice

Written by Jane Austen

Part of the Collins Classics Series

Pride and Prejudice Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. 'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.' Elizabeth Bennet, full of vivacity and wit, lives a quiet country existence with her four sisters. To the delight of their mother, determined to find her daughters suitable matches, the eligible Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley arrive in the neighbourhood, bringing with them dancing, wealth - and opportunity. At first repulsed by Darcy's haughty air, Elizabeth vows to have nothing to do with him. It is only as she makes her own errors of judgement that the pair begin to understand each other, and come to realise that first impressions are not always as they seem. Jane Austen's best-loved tale of marriage and society in Georgian England continues to delight modern readers with its social comedy, well-drawn characters and subtle nuances.
