Getting along with others
Cultures of the world
Teenage life

Mrs Bennet desperately wants to find husbands for her five daughters. When two rich young men visit their village, everything seems to be going to plan. Mr Bingley is friendly and charming. But Mr Darcy seems to think he is too good for his new neighbours. Everyone agrees that he is much too proud.

Then Darcy notices the lively, intelligent Elizabeth Bennet. However, Darcy is shocked by the behaviour of Elizabeth's family, and she discovers that he has wronged the handsome and popular Mr Wickham. It seems that these two will never be friends ...

Mrs Bennet does not give up her search, but there are problems of family and fortune, love and money - and even a scandal - on the way.

Jane Austen lived quietly in the English countryside about two hundred years ago, and wrote stories that looked very closely at the lives and loves of people of her time. Pride and Prejudice has been enjoyed by generations of readers.
