“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” The sentence that opens Pride and Prejudice is among the most famous in world literature.
Jane Austen’s masterpiece was written in 1813 and received immediate acceptance from critics and the public alike. Set against the backdrop of the English landed gentry of the late 18th century, Pride and Prejudice is marked by the author’s irony at the time’s futility and has sold over twenty million copies to date.
Determined, independent, quick to respond, and with a cutting sense of humor, Jane Austen shared many of her female characters with many character traits. She decided to become a writer while still in her teens and made it her life, although her name was only revealed posthumously. She died over 200 years ago and remained one of the most popular writers of all time.
