Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near London. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of the Bennet family are thrown into a turmoil.

About Author

Jane Austen was born on December 1775 in Hampshire, England, in a well-educated middle class family. The youngest of seven children, her recreations were needle work, playing the piano, walking, riding and dancing. At that time it was not considered proper that women should be writers, so her first books were published anonymously.

Jane and her sister Cassandra, both unmarried, lived a quiet life together. It is believed that Jane was once attached to someone, but he never proposed marriage. Jane grew up to be a tall and graceful girl, with well-proportioned features, bright hazel eyes and brown, curly hair. She was gay and witty, a keen observer of people, a brilliant conversationalist, an accomplished dancer and an excellent letter-writer.

She never travelled beyond the narrow compass of her own friends' and relatives' residences in Hamsphire, Kent, Sussex and Somerset. When she went to London, it was as a visitor. In short hers was a pleasant, secure and strictly limited world, undisturbed by the great events—the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars—of her times.

Jane wrote several books, of which Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion are the better known. Unfortunately she never knew that well-known writers of her day admired her greatly. She died young, at forty-two and the acclaim of the world came too late after her death.
