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. In this review, we have provided a carefully prepared study guide to answer all your questions concerning Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice: A complete summary of all sixty-one chapters, segmented into short readable bits Relatable and straightforward analyses of all chapters Major themes and implied themes in the novel Character list of both major and minor characters A review of Jane Austen's personal life, and writing career What you are about to read is one of the most comprehensive and simple go-to summary and analysis of Pride and Prejudice.

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe from New York Times bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz, is a sweet, sexy and hilarious gender-swapping, genre-satisfying re-telling, set in contemporary America and featuring one snooty Miss Darcy. Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones—one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy’s never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else’s drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family. Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He’s a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it’s just another one night stand. But why can’t she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Wonderfully tender and hilariously funny, Eligible tackles gender, class, courtship, and family as Curtis Sittenfeld reaffirms herself as one of the most dazzling authors writing today. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND THE TIMES (UK) This version of the Bennet family—and Mr. Darcy—is one that you have and haven’t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master’s degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won’t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane’s fortieth birthday fast approaches. Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip’s friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . . And yet, first impressions can be deceiving. Praise for Eligible “Even the most ardent Austenite will soon find herself seduced.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “Blissful . . . Sittenfeld modernizes the classic in such a stylish, witty way you’d guess even Jane Austen would be pleased.”—People (book of the week) “[A] sparkling, fresh contemporary retelling.”—Entertainment Weekly “[Sittenfeld] is the ideal modern-day reinterpreter. Her special skill lies not just in her clear, clean writing, but in her general amusement about the world, her arch, pithy, dropped-mike observations about behavior, character and motivation. She can spot hypocrisy, cant, self-contradiction and absurdity ten miles away. She’s the one you want to leave the party with, so she can explain what really happened. . . . Not since Clueless, which transported Emma to Beverly Hills, has Austen been so delightedly interpreted. . . . Sittenfeld writes so well—her sentences are so good and her story so satisfying. . . . As a reader, let me just say: Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition.”—Sarah Lyall, The New York Times Book Review “A clever, uproarious evolution of Austen’s story.”—The Denver Post “If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it. . . . Sittenfeld makes an already irresistible story even more beguiling and charming.”—Elle “A playful, wickedly smart retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.”—BuzzFeed “Sittenfeld is an obvious choice to re-create Jane Austen’s comedy of manners. [She] is a master at dissecting social norms to reveal the truths of human nature underneath.”—The Millions “A hugely entertaining and surprisingly unpredictable book, bursting with wit and charm.”—The Irish Times “An unputdownable retelling of the beloved classic.”—PopSugar
