Pride and Prejudice is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency.

Escrita impecável, trazendo reflexões essenciais para o convívio social. Porém o enredo se mostra um tanto ultrapassado para surpreender os leitores da atualidade.

I read this as a teenager then watched the BBC's series many times over the years. This is the first time I re-read it in 20 years. I have enjoyed it thoroughly. These are young characters. So now, as a 38 year-old, I appreciate Jane Austen's kindness in dealing with their confusion and disappointments. I also love how she does not give up on a beginning that refelects the imperfections of two people and delivers them to the humility of love. It is a sophisticated, timeless work.

My manners are checked as I go through the pages. Truly a classic and this could live on for many more generations to enjoy.
