Pride and Prejudice
By

Rating
""It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."" When Elizabeth Bennet first meets Mr Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited. When she later discovers that he has scuppered the relationship between his friend Bingley and her sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy that follows, the family s lives are turned upside down as Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and pokes fun at the affectations and etiquette of provincial life."
