This classic and groundbreaking novel by Jane Austen (16th December 1775 - 18th July 1817) depicts a young woman's quest for love, surrounded by the themes and issues of the early 19th century. What is perhaps most surprising are the similarities with modern life and its the novel's continuing influence today.
Austen never married and lived her entire life amongst her close family members, who were amongst the lower fringes of the English gentry - similar to that of the characters in Pride Prejudice. Interestingly, Austin was not given much credit at the time for her works, and it was only after her death that critics and scholars begin to recognize her importance to English literature. This abridged recording is read for you by Neil Conrich.
