(Download-PDF-Online Reading-Summary)

The book is narrated in an indirect free speech that follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet while dealing with issues of education, marriage, moral rectitude and education in her aristocratic society. Although the environment of the book was modified uniquely in the 19th century, it remains a fascination for modern readers, and remains at the top of the lists titled "most beloved books of all time" and receives considerable attention from the literary critics. This modern interest has led to a series of dramatic adaptations and a large number of books that further develop the memorable characters of Austen.
Pride and Prejudice is a romantic novel by Jane Austen, published for the first time in 1813. The story shows the emotional development of the protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of writing is based on the description of manners, education, marriage, and money during the period of the British Regency.
Mr. Bennet of the Longbourn estate has five daughters, but his property is related, which means that none of the girls can inherit it. His wife has no fortune, so it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well to be able to help others in his death. Jane Austen's phrase, "It is a universally recognized truth that a single man in possession of a good fortune must have a wife" is a phrase full of irony and amusement. The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love, not only for money, despite social pressures to make a good match (that is, rich).
Pride and prejudice have fascinated readers for a long time, always appearing near the top of the lists of "most beloved books" among literary scholars and the general public. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, with more than 20 million copies sold, and paved the way for many archetypes that abound in modern literature. For more than a century, dramatic adaptations of amateur and professional, continuous and sequels, and the film and television versions of Pride and Prejudice have reinvented the characters and memorable themes of the original novel to reach a mass audience. The 2005 film, Pride, and Prejudice, starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, is the most recent Hollywood adaptation of the book.
