First Published: 1813

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' is one of the best loved and most enduringly popular love stories of all time. The tension and attraction between the heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, and the aloof but dashing Mr. Darcy play out in this romantic comedy, in which Mrs. Bennet tries to marry off not one, but five daughters.
