Noble Classics &&L/I&&Rpulls together a

&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R’It
is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a
good fortune must be in want of a wife.’ Thus memorably begins &&LB&&RJane
Austen&&L/B&&R’s
&&LI&&RPride and
Prejudice&&L/I&&R, one of the world’s most
popular novels. &&LI&&RPride and
Prejudice&&L/I&&R―Austen’s own ‘darling
childՉۥtells the story of fiercely independent Elizabeth Bennet, one of
five sisters who must marry rich, as she confounds the arrogant, wealthy Mr.
Darcy. What ensues is one of the most delightful and engrossingly readable
courtships known to literature, written by a precocious Austen when she was
just twenty-one years
old.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RHumorous
and profound, and filled with highly entertaining dialogue, this witty comedy
of manners dips and turns through drawing-rooms and plots to reach an
immensely satisfying finale. In the words of Eudora Welty,
&&LI&&RPride and
Prejudice&&L/I&&R is as ‘irresistible and as
nearly flawless as any fiction could
be.’&&LBR&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LP
