THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: “P “

For someone who loves to read so much, I am surprisingly ill-versed in the classics. So, today I present to you a book that I have always wanted to read….just never actually have read. Please don’t judge. 🙂

Title: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice by Jane AustenThink of it this way…If Bella Swan loved this book so much, how can it possibly be bad? One day, I will actually read this book and, hopefully, not be disappointed.

 

 

 

 

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

So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners–one of the most popular novels of all time–that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the “most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author’s works,” and Eudora Welty in the twentieth century described it as “irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be.”

    Great choice! I almost used P&P as my “P” book, too. Read it for the first time in high school and hated it, but then re-read it a few years later and it became one of my all-time favorites. Guess I just wasn’t ready for it the first time. Hope you enjoy it!
