Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


A review by Anupam Malhotra

“Jane Austen, an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in the English literature, penned down the Pride and Prejudice novel, is the novel of manners. A not so high, and not so low family of Mr. And Mrs. Bennet with their five daughters show the readers as they deal with issues of manners, upbringing, marriage, love, morality and education. This novel, with the Bennet daughters, Jane and Elizabeth, connects a romantic relationship with two well off guys of their kinds, Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy. There was an immediate love connection between Jane and Bingley but the relation of Darcy and Elizabeth climbed through their ups and downs as hate to love to hate to love again, more so on the latter’s part. This one of the most loved books, puts light to how upbringing of a person affects his personality, and also at the same time, the novel presents a contrary point of view as it shows that noone can be labelled based on their upbringing and persons brought up in the same environment can rather have complete distinctive personalities. The name of the novel in itself tells that the book revolves around the pride and prejudice personas on the parts of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth actually makes their lives more complicated, which could have easier if they had not jumped up at the conclusions they made by the name and families the other person belonged to. “
