Pride and Prejudice was written by Jane Austen and was published in 1813. The book tells about the story of Elizabeth Bennet, a girl who lives in the town of Meryton in Hertfordshire. She is the second child in the family and has four sisters. She is dealing with different issues regarding morality, manners, marriage and education in their society. Pride and Prejudice is one of the most popular English novels and it was able to sell more than 20 million copies.
Mrs. Bennet is a woman who lacks social graces. She wants to find suitable husbands for her unmarried daughters after his husband’s death. She has five daughters. Jane Bennet, the eldest, is known for being kind and beautiful. Elizabeth, the second daughter, is intelligent but has a sarcastic personality. Mary is the most studious among the five. Catherine or Kitty, the fourth, and Lydia, the youngest, are both flirtatious and immature.
The story starts with Mr. Bingley, a rich and single man who is moving into the Bennet’s neighborhood. Everyone in the Netherfield state is excited and talking about this news. The Bennet’s daughters had the chance to him when they attend a local ball. They receive the man well because of his friendly and outgoing personality. Meanwhile, Mr. Bingley takes a liking to the eldest sister, Jane.
While Mr. Bingley is pleasant and easygoing, his sisters and his best friend named Mr. Darcy do not like the Bennets. This is because of their mother’s lower status in the society. At the ball, Mr. Darcy lets everyone know how boring he finds the Bennets, especially Elizabeth.
Mr. Bingley and Jane form an attachment to each other soon after the ball. One time, Jane visits Caroline, Mr. Bingley’s sister, and she gets caught in a heavy rain that caused her to catch cold. She has no choice but to remain at Netherfield for a few days. Elizabeth went over to visit and nurse her sister. During this time, she is thrown into Mr. Darcy’s company and the latter starts to like her but Elizabeth still despises him. Instead, she gets attracted to a handsome militia officer named George Wickham.
Back to the Bennet’s residence, Mr. Collins, the closes relative of Mr. Bennet, pays a visit to Mrs. Bennet to settle his inheritance. He has decided that the best thing to do is to marry one of the daughters so as to preserve their home. He wants to be married to Elizabeth, but the latter really hates him. After Elizabeth’s refusal, he turns to Charlotte Lucas, Elizabeth’s friend and they soon get engaged and married.
Netherfield holds a ball where all the Bennet sisters attend. At the ball, Mrs. Bennet embarrassed the whole family when she loudly announced that Bingley is about to marry Jane. Not too long after the event, Jane surprisingly finds out that Bingley and his family had moved to London. Meanwhile, Elizabeth suspects that Bingley’s sisters together with Darcy are keeping him from Jane.
Elizabeth visits her friend, Charlotte, in London and soon met Mr. Collins and Darcy’s aunt, Lady Catherine De Bourgh. She also gets the chance to meet Darcy. Darcy has decided to propose to her but he was refused. The next day, Darcy gives Jane a letter stating that Wickham is a liar and that the he was convinced that Jane is just a gold digger. Soon after this Elizabeth makes a tour at Darcyís place and she was treated by Darcy politely.
In the end, Elizabeth realizes that Darcy did everything to save the honor of the Bennet’s family. He was the one who paid Wickham’s debts so that he would marry the youngest sister, Lydia.
