Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
Bloom's Literary Criticism, 2007 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 246 pages
When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life. This updated volume presents a perceptive introduction by series editor Harold Bloom and a collection of full-length essays by respected scholars that will enrich students' views on this charming classic.

Pride and Prejudice is a slow novel... It explains a lot about different characters.... it is a very straight tale with no unexpected twists. It is a nice work by Jane Austen. Read full review
