Summary

The romantic clash of two opinionated young people provides the sustaining theme of Austen's 1813 masterwork. Spirited Elizabeth Bennet is one of a family of five daughters. With no male heir, the Bennet estate must someday pass to their priggish cousin Collins. Therefore, the girls must marry well--and the arrogant bachelor Mr. Darcy is Elizabeth's elusive match. Reprint.

Author Biography

Jane Austen was born at Steventon Parsonage, Hampshire, England, on December 16, 1775, the seventh of eight children. She was educated, in the main, by her minister-father, and began her literary career by writing parodies and sketches for the amusement of her family. Her first twenty-six years were spent in the quiet of the rectory. In 1801 the Austen family moved to Bath in an attempt to restore the health of the father. Upon his death in 1805 they moved to Southampton, and finally to Chawton, Hampshire, in 1809. Though her life was uneventful, placid, and circumscribed, Jane Austen was highly sensitive to what went on around her. Her observations on the manners of her time and of her class were incorporated in her novels: Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816). On July 18, 1817, at Winchester, Hampshire, the author died, as quietly and serenely as she had lived.
