Pride and Prejudice
The novel, set in early 19th century England, details the romantic adventures of Elizabeth Bennet, a member of the minor gentry, as she deals with society’s expectations.
Elizabeth’s mother is preoccupied with marrying off her five daughters to rich men. The Bennet family has no male heir, and the estate will pass to a male relative upon the death of Mr. Bennet. Wealthy Mr. Darcy initially appears to be a good prospect but reveals himself as proud, rude and insulting.
Elizabeth, stung by Mr. Darcy’s behavior, continues to rebuff him even after he falls for her frank personality and sharp sense of humor. When Mr. Darcy helps extricate Elizabeth’s foolish sister, Lydia, from a scandalous situation, Elizabeth’s attitude begins to soften. She begins to question her own prejudices toward Mr. Darcy and wonder whether she has been entirely fair to him.
