Explanation of the Book:

This is the complete novel "Pride and Prejudice" with a study guide and biography of Jane Austen. Published in 1913, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a novel centered around character development hence it may be classified as a novel of manners. It chronicles the behavioral development of certain characters, among whom Elizabeth Bennet is key. Set in Longbourn and environs in Hertfordshire as well as Derbyshire, the novel focuses on the imprints of pride and prejudice on how people relate with, and view others in the society. Although it addresses core societal issues such as pride, class division and segregation, money, love and marriage, as well as education, Pride and Prejudice is rife with comic situations, assumptions, first impressions, misconceptions and eventual discoveries of true behaviors. The culture projected in the novel is that of the Classic English society (United Kingdom) in which regency was the ruling system, and the society was stratified into the higher class and the lower class, or put differently, the 'new' money and the 'old' money, and value was placed so much on inheritance. Mobility from the lower class to the upper class was almost impossible and extremely difficult, but could be achieved through marriage. However, members of the privileged class were socially forbidden from marrying from the underprivileged class. This plays a large role in the development of the events in the novel. Whereas members of the underprivileged class, represented by the Bennet family, are considered uncouth, but ambitious to 'sneak' into upper class,l through marriage, members of the privileged upper class, exemplified by characters such as Lady Catherine and the Bingley family, are thought to be proud and domineering. As a result, there is hardly a union between members of both classes. When there is, it is often not because of love, but for material gains. However, these stereotypic order is defied by a few characters in the novel. Contrary to popular belief, Elizabeth marries Darcy mainly for love. She refuses to conform to societal dictates regarding marriage. Although she was brought up in the same culture, and is also guilty of assuming that all those in the upper class are the same, she grows out of this behavior over time. In the same vein, Darcy and Bingley defy the normal attitude expected of the upper class. Although Darcy initially fails to express his feelings for Elizabeth because of the class difference, he eventually develops in character and grows into Jane Austen's ideal member of the upper class. He does not only begin to treat people politely, he ends up proposing to Elizabeth twice before marrying her based on true love.

Award-winning author Sonali Dev launches a new series about the Rajes, an immigrant Indian family descended from royalty, who have built their lives in San Francisco... It is a truth universally acknowledged that only in an overachieving Indian American family can a genius daughter be considered a black sheep. Dr. Trisha Raje is San Francisco’s most acclaimed neurosurgeon. But that’s not enough for the Rajes, her influential immigrant family who’s achieved power by making its own non-negotiable rules: · Never trust an outsider · Never do anything to jeopardize your brother’s political aspirations · And never, ever, defy your family Trisha is guilty of breaking all three rules. But now she has a chance to redeem herself. So long as she doesn’t repeat old mistakes. Up-and-coming chef DJ Caine has known people like Trisha before, people who judge him by his rough beginnings and place pedigree above character. He needs the lucrative job the Rajes offer, but he values his pride too much to indulge Trisha’s arrogance. And then he discovers that she’s the only surgeon who can save his sister’s life. As the two clash, their assumptions crumble like the spun sugar on one of DJ’s stunning desserts. But before a future can be savored there’s a past to be reckoned with... A family trying to build home in a new land. A man who has never felt at home anywhere. And a choice to be made between the two.

Pride and Prejudice traces the life of the Bennet sisters in the Victorian times. It addresses ideas of morality, social standing of women, class divide and its idiosyncrasies through the experiences of Elizabeth Bennet, the second daughter of Mr and Mrs Bennet. All is calm and quiet in Longbourne until the summer when the mild-mannered Mr Bingley and his uptight friend Mr Darcy rent the nearby estate of Netherfield Park. Mr Bingley falls instantly for the shy, sensitive Jane, the eldest of the five Bennet girls, but sparks fly when Elizabeth and Mr Darcy meet. And so enters love, and with it comes turmoil into their young lives. Will Jane and Mr Bingley get together, despite their social differences? Will Elizabeth look beyond her first impressions of Mr Darcy? How will their choices affect their future as well as that of their sisters? This classic novel answers all this as Jane Austen skilfully weaves various themes that were quintessential to the lives of the landed gentry in early 19th century England.

Explanation of the Book:

When Bingley leaves the countryside suddenly and makes no attempts to contact Jane anymore, the young woman is heartbroken. Elizabeth, who had thought well of Bingley, believes that there is something amiss in the way that he left Jane in the lurch. Only when Elizabeth goes to visit her friend at the estate of Darcy's aunt does the mystery begin to unfold. After several encounters with Mr. Darcy while visiting her friend, Elizabeth is shocked when Darcy proposes to her. Elizabeth refuses him and questions him about the way that he misused her soldier friend and his undoubted role in the way that Bingley abandoned Jane. Darcy writes a letter to explain himself, and Elizabeth is embarrassed to learn that she had been mislead about Darcy's character. Had she known the truth, she would have loved Darcy as he loved her. Darcy leaves that part of the country before she can sort out her feelings and make amends with him. Then she meets him again when she is touring the gardens of his estate with her aunt and uncle. Darcy treats her with kindness and she believes he may still love her, but before anything can be done about it, she learns that one of her younger sisters has shacked up with the very soldier who mislead Elizabeth and the rest of her family about Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth returns home immediately. When the indignity of her sister's shot-gun wedding is straightened out, Elizabeth is surprised that Darcy returns to the country with Bingley. She expected that the shame of her sister's actions had ruined any chances of a relationship with Mr. Darcy, or Jane and Bingley. Elizabeth learns from her aunt that Darcy did a great part to help get her younger sister properly married to the infamous soldier. Jane and Bingley sort out the misunderstanding that drove him away before and get engaged. Then Elizabeth and Darcy work out their misunderstandings and agree to marry.

Explanation of the Book:

"Pride and Prejudice" written by Jane Austen in times when marriage, class and inheritance were pivotal. This book was first published in 1813 in London and has since become one of the most well-known novel worldwide!. A true book of worth, a classic that lives in an era of timeless distinction. Early books emit an excellence unlike any from modern times. You will not be dissatisfied with this works, A classic novel at its finest! Sneak Peak Mr. Bennet was among the earliest of those who waited on Mr. Bingley. He had always intended to visit him, though to the last always assuring his wife that he should not go; and till the evening after the visit was paid she had no knowledge of it. It was then disclosed in the following manner. Observing his second daughter employed in trimming a hat, he suddenly addressed her with: "I hope Mr. Bingley will like it, Lizzy." Synopsis Pride and Prejudice is a story that is set in rural England in the early 19th century, and it follows the Bennet family, which includes five very different sisters. Mrs. Bennet is anxious to see all her daughters married, especially as the modest family estate is to be inherited by William Collins when Mr. Bennet dies. At a ball, the wealthy and newly arrived Charles Bingley takes an instant interest in the eldest Bennet daughter, the beautiful and shy Jane. The encounter between his friend Darcy and Elizabeth is less cordial. Although Austen shows them intrigued by each other, she reverses the convention of first impressions: pride of rank and fortune and prejudice against the social inferiority of Elizabeth's family hold Darcy aloof, while Elizabeth is equally fired both by the pride of self-respect and by prejudice against Darcy's snobbery.

A hilarious mash-up of cats and Austen. What if Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was told from a cat’s point of view? On the heels of smash hits like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I Can Has Cheezburger, this hilarious mash-up by children’s author Pamela Jane and photographer Deborah Guyol spins a fresh, quirky take on two of the things we just can’t get enough of: classic cats and classic Jane.

Each photo includes a hilarious caption that goes along with the text of Pride and Prejudice, told from a feline perspective. Pride and Prejudice and Kitties is a book for cat-lovers, Austen-lovers, and people who love to laugh—in other words, just about everyone.
