Propriety and convention serve as the backdrop for an engaging duel between the independent Elizabeth Bennet and the haughty Mr. Darcy. Yet having exhausted their reserves of acerbic wit and social intrigue, they discover that love, in fact, recognizes no arbitrary bounds. Jane Austen's most popular work, Pride and Prejudice continues to fascinate readers with its penetrating insight into the complex relationship between man, woman, and social convention. This new edition features an original foreword by Ellen K. Gregory, who holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa's Writers' Workshop. She has taught English literature at Brigham Young University and Utah State University. Additional titles by this publisher may be found at www.finisterrabooks.com.
