Jane Austen's timeless classic is a perfect counterpart to other literature of the Romantic period, in that Austen is at pains to avoid painting her female characters as "angelic" members of the "fairer sex."
"One of the most universally loved and admired English novels, Pride and Prejudice was penned as a popular entertainment. But the consummate artistry of Jane Austen (1775–1817) transformed this effervescent tale of rural romance into a witty, shrewdly observed satire of English country life that is now regarded as one of the principal treasures of English language."
