In one of the most universally loved and admired English novels, a country squire of no great means must marry off his five vivacious daughters. Austen's comedy of manners--one of the most popular novels of all time--features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of 18-century drawing-room intrigues. Jane Austen's art transformed this effervescent tale of rural romance into a witty, shrewdly observed satire of English country life.
