Pride and Prejudice is an 1813 romantic novel of manners written by Jane Austen. The novel follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist of the book, who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and eventually comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. A classic piece filled with comedy, its humor lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Great Britain.
Jane Austen is one the most popular and influential English novelist since the Victorian era primarily known for her six major novels: Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1816), and Northanger Abbey and Persuasion which were both published posthumously in 1818. Her six full-length novels have been barely out of print since then, yet they were published namelessly and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime. Her works greatly inferred, analyzed and commented on the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. They often explore women’s dependence on marriage in the chase of positive social status and financial solvency. Her novels Sense sensibility published in the second half of the 18th century and is part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. The use of piercing irony, with pragmatism, wit, and social observations, has long earned her acclaim among critics, and scholars.
