Its heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, continues to charm readers to this day with her wit, honesty and sparkling freshness. Indeed, the book lives and moves with the character of Elizabeth Bennet.

To deal with Pride and Prejudice in full would probably require a commentary as long as the novel itself. The world Jane Austen creates in the novel may be a limited one, but it is the world of human mind and heart explored with brilliant moral clarity and unrivalled wit.
