    lilithcat: Some Tame Gazelle was Barbara Pym's first book, but I would really recommend any of her works to admirers of Jane Austen. She has the same sensibility, the same grasp of the English social order and the English village, and populates her books with very similar people. But, more important, she has the same sense of humor, and the same marvelous touch with comedies of manners.… (more)

"Pride",observed Mary, who piqued herself upon the solidity of her reflections, "is a very common failing, I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed; that human nature is particularly prone to it, and that there are very few of us who do not cherish a feeling of self-complacency on the score of some quality or other, real or imaginary."

PLOT

Set at the turn of 19th Century, the story focuses on the Bennett Family, comprised of Mr Bennett; a man who loves nothing more than peace and quiet in his library, Mrs. Bennett, who seems to be only concerned with the fortunes that her family can possess, by means of her five Daughters marrying well.

When Mr.Bingley, a wealthy Bachelor, arrives in their Neighbourhood, Mrs. Bennett is determined that he must take one of her Daughters as his wife, and soon endeavours to make his acquaintance. Mrs. Bennett and her daughters all think Bingley to be incredibly charming and handsome, but Mr. Darcy, a good friend of Bingley,doesn't appeal to them at all. He's far too proud to dance at the ball, hosted by Bingley, and looks down on those around him, instantly causing dislike among the Bennett sisters.

Elizabeth, the main protagonist of the story, watches as her eldest sister falls for Bingley, and laments when it appears it's not to be. When her youngest sister runs away, and causes disruption in the family, will Elizabeth have time to realise that somebody unexpected is seeking her affections. And will she unexpectedly fall in love?


MY OPINION

I got this on my Kindle for free, since I'd like to read more Classics, and it seemed the perfect opportunity. Although I enjoyed reading it, I couldn't give it any more than 3 stars, since I didn't get into it as much as I do with some other books. This could be due to the language barrier, since the characters have a different way of speaking, and because the way they behave towards each other is so different from behaviour in modern times.

I appreciated the story for what it was, a classic masterpiece, loved by many all over the world. But I just couldn't connect with any of the characters. The only connection I felt was dislike towards some of the characters.I felt a strong dislike towards Lady Catherine De Bourgh, since she's very conceited, arrogant, and ignorant. I disliked the character of Lydia, the youngest sister, but I think the reader is supposed to dislike her. She's the youngest, so she's the most immature, but she's also incredibly selfish, doesn't care about the pain she causes her family with her manners, and doesn't devote even a few minutes of her time to listen to anybody else.

Of course, by making me dislike a character in this way, Jane Austen has done a good job with her characters. Lady Catherine and Lydia are obviously meant to be disliked, so the book did make me feel some emotion, which is very important for me. Although I didn't connect with this book as much as I'd have liked to, I still enjoyed reading it. It took a lot longer than it usually takes me to read a book, but it does usually take me a bit longer to read a classic, due to looking up definitions for words every so often(thank you Kindle.)

THE AUTHOR

This book was first published in 1813, and was well received at it's time of publication. There is no doubt why it's a classic, it's stood the test of time and people still enjoy reading it today. It's a Novel that will continue to be enjoyed for many years to come, I'm sure of it. I'm very interested to read some more of Jane Austen's work, and I already have some ready to be read on my Kindle. ( )

[Recensionen gäller en nyöversättning gjord av Gun-Britt Sundström]

...men ”Stolthet och fördom” är en glad roman, tack vare Elizabeth Bennets frejdiga humör och relativa frispråkighet. I Gun-Britt Sundströms nyöversättning ges gott om utrymme för tvetydigheten i hennes repliker, för skrattet som bubblar under ytan.
 
[Recensionen gäller en nyöversättning gjord av Gun-Britt Sundström]

När jag läser Sundströms översättning blir det för första gången tydligt för mig hur skickligt Austen tryfferar romanen med små överdrifter, sarkasmer, nålstick av spydighet, utan att läsaren för den skull tappar engagemanget i intrigen. Humorn gäller särskilt gestaltningen av bokens karikatyrer, Elizabeths ytliga och giriga mamma mrs Bennet och den fjäskige och inbilske mr Collins, den släkting som aspirerar på att överta familjegodset.
 
In Pride and Prejudice, Austen turned up the dial that controls the temperature of comedy, giving it some of the fever of what we would now call romance... For Elizabeth Bennet is the most frictionlessly adorable Heroine in the corpus – by some distance. And, as for the Hero, well, Miss Austen, for once in her short life, held nothing back: tall, dark, handsome, brooding, clever, noble, and profoundly rich...No reader can resist the brazen wishfulness of Pride and Prejudice, but it is clear from internal evidence alone that Austen never fully forgave herself for it...

Pride and Prejudice suckers you. Amazingly – and, I believe, uniquely – it goes on suckering you. Even now, as I open the book, I feel the same tizzy of unsatisfied expectation, despite five or six rereadings. How can this be, when the genre itself guarantees consummation? The simple answer is that these lovers really are ‘made for each other’ – by their creator. They are constructed for each other: interlocked for wedlock. Their marriage has to be.
 
Satírica, antirromántica, profunda y mordaz a un tiempo, la obra de Jane Austen nace de la observación de la vida doméstica y de un profundo conocimiento de la condición humana. Orgullo y prejuicio ha fascinado a generaciones de lectores por sus inolvidables personajes y su desopilante retrato de una sociedad, la Inglaterra victoriana y rural, tan contradictoria como absurda. Con la llegada del rico y apuesto señor Darcy a su región, las vidas de los Bennet y sus cinco hijas se vuelven del revés. El orgullo y la distancia social, la astucia y la hipocresía, los malentendidos y los juicios apresurados abocan a los personajes al escándalo y al dolor, pero también a la comprensión, el conocimiento y el amor verdadero. Esta edición presenta al lector una nueva traducción al castellano que devuelve todo su esplendor al ingenio y la finísima ironía de la prosa de Austen.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
Quotations
The power of doing anything with quickness is always prized much by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance.
Do not be afraid of my running into any excess, of my encroaching on your privilege of universal good will. You need not. There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense.
"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
"I wonder who first discovered the efficacy of poetry in driving away love!"
Though Lydia's short letter to Mrs. F. gave them to understand that they were going to Gretna Green, something was dropped by Denny expressing his belief that W. never intended to go there, or to marry Lydia at all, which was repeated to Colonel F., who, instantly taking the alarm, set off from B. intending to trace their route. He did trace them easily to Clapham, but no farther; for on entering that place they removed into a hackney-coach and dismissed the chaise that brought them from Epsom. All that is known after this is that they were seen to continue the London road. I know not what to think. After making every possible enquiry on that side London, Colonel F. came on into Hertfordshire, anxiously renewing them at all the turnpikes, and at the inns in Barnet and Hatfield, but without any success; no such people had been seen to pass through. With the kindest concern he came on to Longbourn, and broke his apprehensions to us in a manner most creditable to his heart.

Book description
Austen’s most celebrated novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, a bright, lively young woman with four sisters, and a mother determined to marry them to wealthy men. At a party near the Bennets’ home in the English countryside, Elizabeth meets the wealthy, proud Fitzwilliam Darcy. Elizabeth initially finds Darcy haughty and intolerable, but circumstances continue to unite the pair. Mr. Darcy finds himself captivated by Elizabeth’s wit and candor, while her reservations about his character slowly vanish. The story is as much a social critique as it is a love story, and the prose crackles with Austen’s wry wit.
Haiku summary
One of five women,
Finding a man for herself
with wit, pride and love.
