Pride and Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" is an admired, even adored, classic.

Two-hundred-and-two years after the first volume's publication, Austen's witty, sophisticated, romantic novel of manners shows no sign of fading in popularity or relevance.

Want to celebrate this perpetually revisited and reimagined tale of overcoming first impressions? The Library's got you covered!
