DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A sequel faithful to Jane Austen's beloved masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have been married for almost a year, and their heated arguments are a thing of the past. All that passion is now directed into more satisfying pursuits. But how long can the honeymoon last? The couple's idyllic life together at Pemberley is jeopardized by the secrets they begin keeping from each other, the troubles of their closest friends, and the threat of a villain in their midst. Layers of seemingly innocent deception are building between Darcy and Elizabeth, threatening their relationship. He is conducting some covert business dealings that he's unwilling to share with his wife, and she likewise begins keeping things from him against her own better judgment. The couple also becomes embroiled in the tribulations of Mr. Darcy's younger sister, Georgiana, and his friend and cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam. Fitzwilliam falls victim to their aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, as the object of her latest scheme to make a noble match for her daughter. The arrangement satisfies the ambitions of the couple's parents, but appears to hold little prospect of happiness for Anne and Fitzwilliam, who each harbor other romantic interests. During this same period, Georgiana runs the gamut of emotions as she comes of age. Her elation at her birthday ball soon crumbles when she learns the man she secretly admires is engaged to another. The excitement of a London season and the attention of two other eligible suitors cannot make her forget her disappointment over her lost first love. As the story progresses, the menacing shadow of Mr. Darcy's life-long nemesis looms ever-larger. By carelessness and design, Mr. Wickham and Lydia painfully intrude into the lives of the Darcys and the Bingleys, with disastrous results. The Darcys of Pemberley is the tale of two romances: the continuation of Darcy and Elizabeth's story, and the courtship of Miss Georgiana. For those of us who didn't want Pride and Prejudice to end, this charming novel gives the opportunity to learn what happens after the wedding, to revisit all our old friends and foes, and to share the next chapter of their lives. Ms. Winslow carries on the saga much as Jane Austen herself might have - true to her style, her sensibilities, and the delightful characters she created.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This is the complete novel "Pride and Prejudice" with a study guide and biography of Jane Austen. Published in 1913, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a novel centered around character development hence it may be classified as a novel of manners. It chronicles the behavioral development of certain characters, among whom Elizabeth Bennet is key. Set in Longbourn and environs in Hertfordshire as well as Derbyshire, the novel focuses on the imprints of pride and prejudice on how people relate with, and view others in the society. Although it addresses core societal issues such as pride, class division and segregation, money, love and marriage, as well as education, Pride and Prejudice is rife with comic situations, assumptions, first impressions, misconceptions and eventual discoveries of true behaviors. The culture projected in the novel is that of the Classic English society (United Kingdom) in which regency was the ruling system, and the society was stratified into the higher class and the lower class, or put differently, the 'new' money and the 'old' money, and value was placed so much on inheritance. Mobility from the lower class to the upper class was almost impossible and extremely difficult, but could be achieved through marriage. However, members of the privileged class were socially forbidden from marrying from the underprivileged class. This plays a large role in the development of the events in the novel. Whereas members of the underprivileged class, represented by the Bennet family, are considered uncouth, but ambitious to 'sneak' into upper class,l through marriage, members of the privileged upper class, exemplified by characters such as Lady Catherine and the Bingley family, are thought to be proud and domineering. As a result, there is hardly a union between members of both classes. When there is, it is often not because of love, but for material gains. However, these stereotypic order is defied by a few characters in the novel. Contrary to popular belief, Elizabeth marries Darcy mainly for love. She refuses to conform to societal dictates regarding marriage. Although she was brought up in the same culture, and is also guilty of assuming that all those in the upper class are the same, she grows out of this behavior over time. In the same vein, Darcy and Bingley defy the normal attitude expected of the upper class. Although Darcy initially fails to express his feelings for Elizabeth because of the class difference, he eventually develops in character and grows into Jane Austen's ideal member of the upper class. He does not only begin to treat people politely, he ends up proposing to Elizabeth twice before marrying her based on true love.

Austen’s most celebrated novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, a bright, lively young woman with four sisters, and a mother determined to marry them to wealthy men.

Elizabeth initially finds Darcy haughty and intolerable, but circumstances continue to unite the pair.

The story is as much a social critique as it is a love story, and the prose crackles with Austen’s wry wit.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners is one of the most universally loved and admired English novels of all time. “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” The Bennets are a family of five daughters, and with no male heir, the Bennet estate must someday pass to their priggish cousin Mr. Collins. Therefore, with no fortune or security of their own, the girls must marry well—and thus is launched the story of spirited and opinionated Elizabeth Bennet and the arrogant and aloof bachelor Mr. Darcy. An entertaining portrait of nineteenth century matrimonial rites and rivalries, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is timeless in its hilarity and honesty. With an Introduction by Margaret Drabble and an Afterword by Eloisa James

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Elizabeth Bennet is Austen's most liberated and unambiguously appealing heroine, and Pride and Prejudice has remained over most of the past two centuries Austen's most popular novel. The story turns on the marriage prospects of the five daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet: Elizabeth forms a prejudice against the proud and distant Mr. Darcy; Darcy's charming friend Charles Bingley falls in love with her sister Jane; and the handsome officer George Wickham forms attachments successively to Elizabeth and to her sister Lydia. Irvine's extensive introduction sets the novel in the context of the literary and intellectual history of the period, and deals with such crucial background issues as early-nineteenth century class relations in Britain, and female exclusion from property and power.We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection.
