Pride and Prejudice is a novel of manners by Jane Austen. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London. Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books" such as The Big Read. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes. To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.
Portrait
Jane Austen wurde 1775 in Steventon (Hampshire) als Tochter eines Landpfarrers geboren. Sie gilt als die herausragendste Vertreterin des englischen Gesellschaftsromans. Mit ihrem ersten großen Werk Sense and Sensibility (1811) wandte sie sich gegen die zeitgenössische empfindsame Literatur, statt dessen schilderte sie das alltägliche, scheinbar ausgeglichene Leben des Bürgertums sowie des niederen Adels. Weitere wichtige Werke von Jane Austen: Stolz und Vorurteil (1813, Dt. 1948), Emma (1818, dt. 1961) und Mansfield Park (1814, Dt. 1968). Jane Austen starb 1817 im Alter von einundvierzig Jahren an Tuberkulose. Erst nach ihrem Tod wurde sie als Schriftstellerin anerkannt.

„On the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's Death“

Carola Ludger, Thalia-Buchhandlung Lippstadt

Exactly 200 years ago, the wonderful Jane Austen died on 18th July in 1817 at the age of 41. Reason enough to read one of her novels. So what about "Pride and Prejudice"?! This is one of my favourite novels.
It is a love story of two people who fall in love with the second glance. Jane Austen still inspires her readers – 200 years later.

It is a love story of two people who fall in love with the second glance. Jane Austen still inspires her readers – 200 years later. Why is that? I think the outstanding aspects are the fine, ironic narrative, the skillful witty dialogues as well as the sensitivity.
A touch of nostalgia! But to this day, Austen's novels did not become less important.
If I have inspired you by this, grab yourself a book by Jane and enjoy reading it. An unforgettable enjoyable reading experience! Or in the words of Mr Darcy: "In fact – stimulating.".
