Produktbeschreibung
The Penguin English Library Edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 'No sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes ...' 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 sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Autorenporträt
Das Leben Jane Austens (1775 bis 1817) verlief ähnlich unberührt von den historischen Ereignissen ihrer Zeit wie das ihrer Heldinnen und Helden. Ihre Welt war die verträumte Provinz, doch entdeckte sie hier eine überraschende Vielfalt der Temperamente und Typen, die sie mit heiter-ironischem Humor und kritischem Blick in ihren Romanen nachzeichnete. Ihre literarische Welt war die des englischen Landadels, deren wohl kaschierte Abgründe sie mit feiner Ironie und Satire entlarvte. Durch ihre geradezu modern anmutende Kunst der Seelenanalyse entstand ein Bild menschlicher Tugenden und Unzulänglichkeiten, das bis heute nichts von seiner Farbigkeit und Frische verloren hat. Sie starb 41-jährig, unverheiratet und kinderlos.
