PRIDE AND PREJUDICE


Jane Austen's novel has timeless themes and memorable characters. Her use of satire (yes, that again) is reflected through her observations of 18th Century England.

Austen sets the tone for the novel with the first sentence, "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good forturne, must be in want of a wife."
