"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."One of the most famous opening sentences in literature introduces the world to Austen's classic tale of love, class, and marriage in 19th century England. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet, an independent, intelligent, and beautifulyoung woman who encounters her seemingly impossible suitor the rich, handsome, but prideful Fitzwilliam Darcy. Through their inevitable and at times adventurous courtship, both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy gain self-understanding about themselves and their follies. Even after nearly 200 years, this tale of pride and prejudice continues to draw readers with Austen's masterful telling of a captivating love story, an insightful observation of human nature, and above all, a witty examination of a cast of unforgettable characters.
