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 the British Regency. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr Bennet, living in Longbourn.
Set in England in the late 18th century, Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after two gentlemen have moved into their neighbourhood: the rich and eligible Mr Bingley, and his status-conscious friend, the even richer and more eligible Mr Darcy. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy is disdainful of local society and repeatedly clashes with the Bennets' lively second daughter, Elizabeth.
Pride and Prejudice retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books". It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, selling over 20 million copies, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Likewise, it has paved the way for archetypes that abound in many contemporary literature of our time. 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.
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.".
