Description

Product Description

No novel in English has given more pleasure than Pride and Prejudice. Because it is one of the great works in our literature, critics in every generation reexamine and reinterpret it. But the rest of us simply fall in love with it—and with its wonderfully charming and intelligent heroine, Elizabeth Bennet. And everyone is held fast not only by the novel’s romantic suspense but also by the fascinations of the world we visit. The life of the English country gentry at the turn of the nineteenth century is made as real to us as our own, not only by the author’s wit and feeling but by her subtle observation of the way people behave in society and how we are true or treacherous to each other and to ourselves.

“Jane Austen remains the most misunderstood of great English writers . . . Austen’s is an extended, exploratory, dangerously subversive art, and is neither harmlessly decorative nor picturesquely provincial . . . [Irony] is the secret of the perfect self-sufficiency of Pride and Prejudice.”—from the Introduction by Peter Conrad

Review

"The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste."
--Virginia Woolf

From the Inside Flap

Introduction by Peter Conrad

About the Author

Though the domain of Jane Austen’s novels was as circumscribed as her life, her caustic wit and keen observation made her the equal of the greatest novelists in any language. Born the seventh child of the rector of Steventon, Hampshire, on December 16, 1775, she was educated mainly at home. At an early age she began writing sketches and satires of popular novels for her family’s entertainment. As a clergyman’s daughter from a well-connected family, she had an ample opportunity to study the habits of the middle class, the gentry, and the aristocracy. At twenty-one, she began a novel called “The First Impressions” an early version of Pride and Prejudice. In 1801, on her father’s retirement, the family moved to the fashionable resort of Bath. Two years later she sold the first version of Northanger Abby to a London publisher, but the first of her novels to appear was Sense and Sensibility, published at her own expense in 1811. It was followed by Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1815).

After her father died in 1805, the family first moved to Southampton then to Chawton Cottage in Hampshire. Despite this relative retirement, Jane Austen was still in touch with a wider world, mainly through her brothers; one had become a very rich country gentleman, another a London banker, and two were naval officers. Though her many novels were published anonymously, she had many early and devoted readers, among them the Prince Regent and Sir Walter Scott. In 1816, in declining health, Austen wrote Persuasion and revised Northanger Abby, Her last work, Sandition, was left unfinished at her death on July 18, 1817. She was buried in Winchester Cathedral. Austen’s identity as an author was announced to the world posthumously by her brother Henry, who supervised the publication of Northanger Abby and Persuasion in 1818.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Chapter One


It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.

"My dear Mr. Bennet," said his lady to him one day, "have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?"

Mr. Bennet replied that he had not.

"But it is," returned she; "for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it."

Mr. Bennet made no answer.

"Do not you want to know who has taken it?" cried his wife impatiently. "You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it."

This was invitation enough.

"Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it that he agreed with Mr. Morris immediately; that he is to take possession before Michaelmas, and some of his servants are to be in the house by the end of next week."

"What is his name?"

"Bingley."

"Is he married or single?"

"Oh! single, my dear, to be sure! A single man of large fortune; four or five thousand a year. What a fine thing for our girls!"

"How so? How can it affect them?"

"My dear Mr. Bennet," replied his wife, "how can you be so tiresome! You must know that I am thinking of his marrying one of them."

"Is that his design in settling here?"

"Design! nonsense, how can you talk so! But it is very likely that he may fall in love with one of them, and therefore you must visit him as soon as he comes."

"I see no occasion for that. You and the girls may go, or you may send them by themselves, which perhaps will be still better, for as you are as handsome as any of them, Mr. Bingley might like you the best of the party."

"My dear, you flatter me. I certainly have had my share of beauty, but I do not pretend to be anything extraordinary now. When a woman has five grown-up daughters, she ought to give over thinking of her own beauty."

"In such cases, a woman has not often much beauty to think of."

"But, my dear, you must indeed go and see Mr. Bingley when he comes into the neighbourhood."

"It is more than I engage for, I assure you."

"But consider your daughters. Only think what an establishment it would be for one of them. Sir William and Lady Lucas are determined to go, merely on that account, for in general you know they visit no newcomers. Indeed you must go, for it will be impossible for us to visit him if you do not."

"You are over scrupulous surely. I dare say Mr. Bingley will be very glad to see you; and I will send a few lines by you to assure him of my hearty consent to his marrying whichever he chooses of the girls; though I must throw in a good word for my little Lizzy."

"I desire you will do no such thing. Lizzy is not a bit better than the others; and I am sure she is not half so handsome as Jane, nor half so good-humoured as Lydia. But you are always giving her the preference."

"They have none of them much to recommend them," replied he; "they are all silly and ignorant like other girls; but Lizzy has something more of quickness than her sisters."

"Mr. Bennet, how can you abuse your own children in such a way? You take delight in vexing me. You have no compassion on my poor nerves."

"You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least."

"Ah! you do not know what I suffer."

"But I hope you will get over it, and live to see many young men of four thousand a year come into the neighbourhood."

"It will be no use to us if twenty such should come since you will not visit them."

"Depend upon it, my dear, that when there are twenty, I will visit them all."

Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three and twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her mind was less difficult to develop. She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper. When she was discontented she fancied herself nervous. The business of her life was to get her daughters married; its solace was visiting and news.

There must be many thousands of digital versions of Jane Austen''s Pride and Prejudice. I got this because I wanted to compare it with another that I had, and didn''t realize until it was on my kindle that the name of the author on the cover page is incorrect!! The author is NOT Charlotte Bronte!!!!! This is so inexplicable and appalling a mistake, I had to write and mention it so that it can (hopefully) be corrected. The rest of the text is fine. I don''t want it on my kindle, and have deleted it. How anyone could have confused Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte (author of Jane Eyre) is beyond me.

After reading the first few chapters (The chapters are very short) of Jane Austen''s "Pride and Prejudice" I wondered how anyone could be interested in such pompous, egotistical, aloof and self serving characters?

After reading on I said, "Wow! How could I be so interested in such characters?"

Getting toward the middle of the book, I was hoping that it would never end.

By the end of the book, I fully realized what a magnificent piece of writing I had just read.

"Pride and Prejudice" is one of the best sociological studies about early nineteen century British loyalty and society I have ever read - where title, rank, fortune, and good looks are in many ways the requirements of an approved marriage, much, much more than love. In fact, this wonderful book might not be as relevant today as two hundred years ago, but there are still many traces of such societies throughout the world, today. It was not all that long ago in America, where marrying outside of your religion, or ethnicity, was looked down upon.

The book is full of wonderful characters, but Elizabeth (Lizzy) Bennet is, in my opinion, the star. Her character is so wonderfully and fully realized that at times I felt her jumping off the page and directly into my life.

Liza, a fellow member and friend on Goodreads, informed me that she had read the book twice and still was not sure if the ending was ''sad'' or ''funny.'' To me, it was funny and exceptionally rewarding but sad to think that a lady''s livelihood depended more on the wealth and rank of your partner than love.

Quite an amazing book.

I love Pride and Prejudice. This review is not about the novel, but this specific edition. There was a beautiful, illustrated version of Pride and Prejudice published in 1894. This paperback is a poor replication of it. In all I paid about $20 for this copy. There were less than 300 copies printed of the original and can be found online for thousands of dollars. That is a pretty big financial commitment, so I started looking into replicas. I discovered this one and figured it was a nice way to dip my toes into this illustrated version. Overall, it is an okay copy. Some of the images are very pixelated, as shown in the photo. I have a screenshot of a scanned version of the original compared to what I received. The images in this paperback have far less detail than the original. There is a huge range in the quality of the images. However, this copy satisfies me enough and fulfills my wish of having this version. I wish more care was taken into the design of the front and back covers. The outside could have been truly beautiful instead of looking like a cheap knockoff.

There is another publisher that does a hardcover copy of this 1894 edition that looks stunning. That one is priced at like $300 so I might upgrade to that in the future as a treat. I desperately want to get more copies of this book that are stunning. If you can afford it from the get go, I would probably go with that. If you cannot and are desperate for the peacock edition like I was, stick with this for now.

I''ll admit, the thing that made this novel easier for me to figure out was that I''d watched Pride and Prejudice (2005) starring Keira Knightley. I''d put off reading the actual Jane Austen novel for most of my life. This is not my usual fare, at all, but because a good friend of mine, Helen Moffett, is seeing the release of her P&P sequel Charlotte, I figured I''d better get reading so that I could have the background.

Historical fiction written during contemporary times is one thing, but actual fiction from more than hundred years ago is quite another. Austen writes for an audience that would take conventions in clothing and the environment for granted, focusing instead of dialogue and mannerisms. So we''re left with a kind of shallow, limited third person that doesn''t feed readers who''re used to a deeper point of view. So it helps immensely for folks like me, who honestly don''t have a clue, to have watched that film. It gave me useful context. Don''t be ashamed to watch the film before reading the novel.

I believe it does the book a disservice to evaluate it using contemporary standards. Authors these days have a deep well of literary conventions to draw from, so applying those to Austen will rob the book of much of its character. For me, P&P exists as a time capsule, offering a glimpse into particular cultural and social mores prevalent within English society at the time. We step into a world where characters are trapped by their status within society, and while it can be argued that many of Austen''s characters are shallow (um, hello, Mr Collins much), I feel that Austen is taking stabs at society. And it makes me also realise how much society has changed, and what we, as women, take for granted in terms of our liberties and empowerment in contemporary times.

While I didn''t gain the same sort of enjoyment from Pride and Prejudice as I would from the usual titles I''ll slide onto my Kindle, I nonetheless walked away from this novel feeling as if I''d gained a better understanding as to why Regency-era stories have carved themselves such a beloved niche among readers. It''s easy to loathe some of the characters, and at a glance, people like Mrs Bennett seem facile and annoying, but if you dig a little deeper, the social commentary becomes crystal clear. Sure, Mrs Bennett''s obsession with marrying off her daughters seems exhausting, but if you understand her very real fears that she would not be able to care for them if they never got married – for there were no prospects for a woman in those days to have a career – then it''s possible to be more sympathetic towards her. Despite each character having perceived privileges, they themselves are trapped by their social standing. And don''t get me started on Mr Collins, and especially his appalling commentary when one of Elizabeth''s sisters elopes.

It took me some time to get used to Austen''s style, and now that I''m done with the novel, I also realise it''s a story that begs being reread at some point. The beauty of the telling lies in what the characters have to say to each other, and how they respond to circumstances, and I feel on the first read through there were many subtleties that I may have missed.

"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen started off annoying me and ended up enchanting me. Up until about page one hundred I found this book vexing, frivolous and down right tedious. I now count myself as a convert to the Austen cult.

I must confess I have been known to express an antipathy for anything written or set before 1900. I just cannot get down with corsets, outdoor plumbing and buggy rides. Whenever someone dips a quill into an inkwell my eyes glaze over. This is a shortcoming I readily own up to but have no desire to correct. So I admit to not starting this book with the highest of hopes. I did really enjoy Ang Lee''s "Sense and Sensibility" however and so when my friend threw the gauntlet down I dutifully picked it up.

Boy did I hate him at first. To get anywhere with this book one has to immerse oneself in the realities of life and marriage in the nineteenth century. At first all this talk of entailment and manners just left me cold. I liked the language to be sure. Austen''s dialogue is delightful through out but dialogue alone (no matter how delicious) does not a great novel make.

A hundred pages or so in though I started to see what a shrewd eye for character this Austen woman had. Mr. Collins was the first person I marvelled at. His character springs forth fully formed as a total but somehow loveable ass. From that point on I found much to love about this book. I was so into it by the end that I was laughing at some characters, sympathizing with others and clucking my tongue at an unhappy few. In short I was completely absorbed.

In conclusion I must now count myself a fan of Miss Austen''s novels (and not just their fim adaptations) and do so look forward to acqauinting myself with more of her work in the future. "Emma" anyone?

The print quality of this book was disappointing. The headers and footers were cut much too fine with the print almost on the edges of the paper but worse was the breaks in the printed lines where a sentence would beak part of the way across the page leaving a large blank space before continuing on the line below. All the text was there but it made for very disjointed reading spoiling the pleasure of reading this old classic. This was a regular occurrence throughout the book.

The whole point of large print books is to make reading easier for the sight impaired, this book although large print because of the poor layout and lack of attention too detail did not make for the pleasant reading experience I had looked forward too. The story is as good as ever but this book as printed is very poor. I''ve probably been generous to give it four stars and only did so because it is hard to find large print books.

This is a lovely collection, and I made sure to grab it early because at 10,000 copies each I knew they would sell out. I appreciate that they came with a plastic jacket to protect the book, but it is very cheap cellophane and is not meant to be kept on the books. The die cuts are EXTREMELY delicate and you have to be careful when pulling them off of the shelf when they are next to each other. One die cut can grab another on a second book and rip. I wish that they had come with better quality covers, I''m definitely going to need to cover them myself. In addition, there were slight brown marks on my books, and much more browning on the inside of the dust jackets, where it appears that the die cutting machine got too hot and actually burned the paper. I''ve contacted several other book collector friends who confirmed that their set was the same. But for the price, they are a decent collection. I hope that when the future seasons books come out that they will address these issues.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” The iconic opening line that got me hooked. Pride and Prejudice is a masterpiece I first read when I was 15 , It was a battered copy I had picked up from a second hand shop. "Love at first line" is how I would describe it, and so began my love for classics. Now years later, I bought this beautiful vintage classics edition and read it for the upteenth time. Mr. Bennet is the father of five daughters living on a modest income, he is married to Mrs. Bennet whose only goal in life is to get her daughters married . She finds her prayers answered when a young bachelor, a Mr. Bingley comes in their neighbourhood with his sisters and a friend Mr. Darcy and so the story begins. This book made a big impact on me when I first read it, it deals with marriage for love vs money, class differences, self evolution of both the male and female protagonist. The characters are written in a very realistic manner , Our heroine is flawed, prejudiced but strong. Elizabeth Bennet is no doormat, she will not marry for comfort and monetary gains but for love. Mr. Darcy had to be my first fictional crush, an epitome of the strong and silent men. Jane Austen immortalized both of them. The book being published in 1813 is a bit difficult to read for anyone starting on classics but I would urge the reader to give the book some time and it would be worth it.

Love it, love it, love it! Excellent book. It will keep you glued till the very end. You''ll be left wanting for more by the time you finish this. Language can be a bit tricky, nothing a dictionary app cannot fix. The acrid language, piercing detail and the vivid picturization make this a worthwhile read. I''ll probably read it again and again many times just for the pure joy of reading - there is something of nice and pleasant flow of her language. Now as for book and printing - very nice. The font used is Sabon instead of something ghastly like Times New Roman. Text size is quite comfortable. Paper quality is nice and has a smooth texture to it, although people accustomed to the bright off-white pages might be a bit disappointed at the not so bright pages. So my suggestion is to buy the penguin edition.

I haven''t read many books and this one wasn''t the type that I would have preferred. But having read too few books since I was a child, I resolved towards the end of 2017 to read at least 12 books a year thereafter and ensure that at least one of them were a classic. This was the second classic. I had a hard time reading this at first. So many new words entered my limited vocabulary after the first few chapters that it was impossible to not notice how frequently I needed the dictionary. The author clearly has a word for everything and is very poetic at times when describing emotions of the characters. The language and dialogues among the characters are so dramatic and eloquent. Plenty of uncommon synonyms were used in writing this story. There were parts in the book when I thought the author sat writing with a thesaurus, picking alternate synonyms, one after the other. As anyone who has read about Jane Austen would know, she explored the lives of families in England during the times of gentry, the class of wealthy landlords and barons. She gives a detailed picture of what was expected of a fiancé at the time; how family, social connections and wealth was so important for a marriage alliance to be considered propriety in this book. Some of the expectations bore a striking resemblance to the customs that are associated with arranged marriages that prevail in India. I realize now that Indians probably got this from the British who colonized the place for nearly 200 years. The story revolves around a girl in a family of 5 sisters, who belonged to what can be termed probably middle class of today. It takes us through how her feelings for a wealthy young man transforms from hate to admiration. The story also illustrates how prejudice can affect one''s opinion and how pride can blind one. I never imagined that I could enjoy reading anything but detective or science fiction but this one was really a pleasure to read. Thanks to the holiday season, I had plenty of time to read too. Looking forward to reading more of her works.

Nowadays with the fame of Jane Austen worldwide it seems hard to believe that in her own lifetime this was the only book that brought her any real success. And what a book it is. Set in the Regency Period so we have a book full of comedy as Jane Austen takes in the manners, conventions and women’s place in the world she grew up in, and of course in many parts of the world such things are still of great importance. After all, in many cultures parents want their daughters to marry into the same class or even improve themselves by going up, they do not want them to ‘downsize’ and drop a class. For the Bennet family, with five daughters, and the family estate entailed so it is imperative that at least one or more of the girls makes a good match in the marriage market, so as to support the rest of the family when Mr Bennet dies, and Mrs Bennet is certainly set on doing all that she can to assist in this. Thus, when Mr Bingley rents a house so all the women with eligible daughters in the area make a bee-line straight for him, even more so when he is accompanied by Mr Darcy, who is even wealthier, and also single. Of course, as we all know Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are the main stars of the book, but there are a number of memorable characters here such as Mrs Bennet, the nefarious George Wickham, and William Collins, who would marry any woman who says yes, to name but a few. Always a pleasure to read (as are all of Jane Austen’s novels) so this is a book that most of us have read numerous times in the past, and always come back to as it is such a good read. It is rather ironic though that these days such a book as this is considered women’s fiction and for the ladies, because as those who know their social history will know, in the period Miss Austen wrote men were the biggest buyer and readers of books. The reason for this being that it was believed that women couldn’t cope with fiction that well, as their poor little brains were not usually able to differentiate between fact and fiction. With this in mind, and if like me you are male but have so far avoided this book, then please read it, there is so much to enjoy and think about here.
