Pride and Prejudice

Mon 30 December 2019 by Thejaswi Puthraya

"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen is a beautiful novel which one can read just for it's style. Mr. Bennet has 5 daughters of marriageable age. A rich and eligible bachelor moves into town. Mr. Bingley hosts a ball to acquaint himself with his new townsmen and here takes a liking for Miss Jane, the eldest of Bennet daughters. His friend, Mr. Darcy disappoints a lot of people with his display of arrogance and snobbishness. He hurts Elizabeth's (second daughter) pride by claiming he found her unattractive.

A lot more characters make their entry and the plot gets murkier until a letter from Elizabeth's aunt sets things in perspective.
