Pride and Prejudice is a novel of manners, a satire of 18th century England and a story of the love between Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. Summary of the Book Elizabeth Bennet is the second of five daughters of an English country gentleman. Unused to social situations and the graces of the gentry, Elizabeth attends a ball where she meets Fitzwilliam Darcy, a man who acts condescending towards her and towards the ball in general. Eventually, chance puts her in Darcy's path several times, and she discovers that Mr. Darcy isn't all that bad after all. About Jane Austen Jane Austen was an English writer. She was known for her works: Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion and Mansfield Park.
When Elizabeth Bennet meets Fitzwilliam Darcy for the first time at a ball, she writes him off as an arrogant and obnoxious man. He not only acts like an insufferable snob, but she also overhears him rejecting the very idea of asking her for a dance!
As life pits them against each other again and again, Darcy begins to fall for Elizabeth's wit and intelligence and Elizabeth begins to question her feelings about Darcy. When Darcy saves her youngest sister, Lydia, from a scandal, Elizabeth starts to wonder if her pride has prejudiced her opinion of Darcy.
Through this tale about two warring hearts, Austen weaves a witty satire about life in eighteenth century England. And though it was published more than two centuries ago, Pride and Prejudice continues to enthrall readers to this very day.
