Pride and Prejudice, Paperback / softback Book

Pride and Prejudice Paperback / softback

Part of the Wordsworth Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

Introduction and Notes by Dr Ian Littlewood, University of Sussex. Pride and Prejudice, which opens with one of the most famous sentences in English Literature, is an ironic novel of manners.

In it the garrulous and empty-headed Mrs Bennet has only one aim - that of finding a good match for each of her five daughters.

In this she is mocked by her cynical and indolent husband. With its wit, its social precision and, above all, its irresistible heroine, Pride and Prejudice has proved one of the most enduringly popular novels in the English language.
