Pride and Prejudice


Jane Austen


This edition of Pride and Prejudice is perfect for GCSE-level students: it comes complete with the novel, plus an introduction providing context, and a glossary explaining key terms.

‘She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me; and I am in no humour at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men.’

Such is the unpromising start to one of the most well-known relationships in English literature. Can vivacious, intelligent, but fortuneless Elizabeth Bennet and the wealthy, reserved and seemingly haughty Mr Darcy see past their first impressions of one another?

Jane Austen’s 1813 novel paints a witty picture of Georgian society, showing through the ups and downs of the five Bennet sisters the lengths to which women must go to secure a husband and position – and, in Elizabeth’s case, to find a marriage of true minds.

 

Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction set among the gentry have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature. Jane Austen was born in Steventon rectory on 16th December 1775. Her family later moved to Bath and then to Chawton in Hampshire. She wrote from a young age and Pride and Prejudice was begun when she was twenty-two years old. It was originally called First Impressions. It was initially rejected by the published she submitted it too and eventually published in 1813 after much revision.
