Taschenbuch

Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners is one of the most universally loved and admired English novels of all time.
Spirited Elizabeth Bennet is one of a family of five daughters, and with no male heir, the Bennet estate must someday pass to their priggish cousin William Collins. Therefore, the girls must marry well-and thus is launched the story of Elizabeth and the arrogant bachelor Mr. Darcy, in a novel renowned as the epitome of romance and wit. Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's masterwork, an entertaining portrait of matrimonial rites and rivalries, timeless in its hilarity and its honesty.
With an Introduction by Margaret Drabble
and an Afterword by Eloisa James
Rezension
"[Austen] had a talent for describing the involvements and feelings and characters of ordinary life which is...the most wonderful I ever met."-Sir Walter Scott
Portrait
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was born in Hampshire, England, to George Austen, a rector, and his wife, Cassandra. Like many girls of her day, she was educated at home, where she began her literary career by writing parodies and skits for the amusement of her large family. Although Austen did not marry, she did have several suitors and once accepted a marriage proposal, but only for an evening. Although Austen never lived apart from her family, her work shows a worldly and wise sensibility. Her novels include "Sense and Sensibility" (1811), "Pride and Prejudice "(1813), "Mansfield Park" (1814), "Emma" (1815), and "Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion," published together posthumously in 1818. Margaret Drabble is the highly acclaimed novelist, biographer, and editor of "The Oxford Companion to English Literature." Her novels include "The Gates of Ivory," "The Seven Sisters," and" The Red Queen." "New York Times "bestselling author Eloisa James's historical Regencies have been published to great acclaim; "People" magazine raved that "romance writing does not get much better than this." Her numerous novels have repeatedly received starred reviews from "Publishers Weekly," and regularly appear on the bestseller lists. James is also a professor of English literature at Fordham University.

„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.".

Das Meisterwerk von Jane Austen
von Mag aus Berlin am 20.12.2011

Eine humorvolle Schilderung des Lebens und der Standesunterschiede im ländlichen England um 1800.

Eine humorvolle Schilderung des Lebens und der Standesunterschiede im ländlichen England um 1800. Familie Bennet, mit fünf Töchtern aber keinem Sohn gesegnet, muss versuchen, wenigstens einige der Töchter unter die Haube zu bringen. Dies sieht vor allem die etwas engstirnige, redefreudige Mutter als ihre Hauptaufgabe. Jeder in der Umgebung auftauchende, halbwegs akzeptable Junggeselle wird als möglicher Heiratskandidat für eine der Töchter betrachtet, unabhängig von Zuneigung und wirklicher Eignung. Nur gut, dass die zweitälteste Tochter Elizabeth selbstbewusst ihre eigene Meinung vertritt und nach Revidierung ihrer Vorurteile und vielen Umwegen zum geliebten Mr. Darcy findet. Ein Leckerbissen für Leser, die sich gern in alte Zeiten zurückversetzen lassen. Besonders gelungen ist die Darstellung sämtlicher Akteure in diesem Roman, in dem nicht nur die Hauptpersonen umfassend charakterisiert werden, sondern auch Nebenfiguren durch ihre individuellen, äußerst akkurat geschilderten Eigenarten beim Leser lebendige Gestalt annehmen und für immer im Gedächtnis bleiben. Bei ihrem humorvollen, liebenswürdigen Erzählstil gelingt es Jane Austen, so manchen Seitenhieb auf Missstände ihrer Zeit auszuteilen und für ihre Zeit äußerst moderne Ansichten zu vertreten. Sehenswert dazu ist auch die BBC-Verfilmung von 1995 mit Colin Firth und Jennifer Ehle in den Hauptrollen, wobei die englische Langfassung bei Weitem besser ist, als die daraus entstandene adaptierte Form für das ZDF, die neben ungeschickten Kürzungen auch grobe Schnitzer bei der Übersetzung enthält.

A Classic Romance
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 13.06.2017
Bewertet: Taschenbuch

?It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.? Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite novels by Jane Austen and also one of my favourite romances. Every time I read... ?It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.? Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite novels by Jane Austen and also one of my favourite romances. Every time I read it I fall in love with it all over again. Even though I always know what happens next I still enjoy this book very much. I love the very first sentence, the first scene with Mr and Mrs Bennet and I love the five, very different sisters Lizzie, Jane, Lydia, Kitty, and Mary. I love to read about Darcy's and Lizzie's first encounter and their bad first impressions of each other. It's also very fun every time around how Darcy slowly falls in love with Elizabeth, even though he tries to resist it. How Lizzie gets ruffled up about Darcy amuses me very much. The scene with Darcy's proposal is the most fun, in my opinion. I could go on and on about all the things that I love but it would be easier and quicker if you just read the book. Lizzie is charmingly snarky and sarcastic, also very quick witted. She is one of my favoutite heroines. At first, she is quick to judge and is opposed to change a preformed opinion of somebody or something. But Lizzie's character grows very much and watching that happening warms my heart with every reread. Her relationship with her dad is also very heartwarming. ?An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.? Darcy is a stuck-up, arrogant snob - or so it seems. He actually has a big heart and cares very much about the people he loves and, damn, he has some killer romantic lines in this book. ?You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.? One thing that irks me, though, and that is except Mrs Bennet (I know, she only wants the best for her daughters but, man, that woman annoys the hell out of me!), is the characterization of Lydia. She is young and carefree and very immature but I don't like how Lydia is characterized so shallowly. I would've loved to see some character growth in her but maybe I'm just biased because in an adaptation of P&P Lydia grows so much and she is one of my favourite characters in that adaptation. P&P will forever be on of my favourite books of all time, I will treasure it and reread it whenever I can! ?I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.? 5 stars, 'cause what else?!

einfach fantastisch
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Berlin am 04.09.2015
Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Pride and Prejudice war mein erstes Buch, welches ich von Jane Austin gelesen habe. Ich habe ich sofort in ihren Schreibstil verliebt und auch in den starken weiblichen Charaktere. Die Gesichte ist relativ typisch für's 18.-19. Jahrhundert, aber nicht umsonst ein Klassiker. Einfach empfehlenswert.
