Pride and Prejudice
Mr. Charles Bingley, a handsome bachelor with a good income, moves into a house near the Bennet family estate. The wealthy gentleman soon finds himself falling in love with Jane, the oldest of the five Bennet sisters, but his friend, the aristocratic Mr. Darcy, disappoves of his choice. To Mr. Darcy the Bennet family is socially inferior. At the same time Mr. Darcy finds himself increasingly drawn to Elizabeth Bennet, Jane's younger sister. The romantic clash of these two headstrong young people provides the sustaining theme of this delightful novel, which is one of Austen's best.
