Description

Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen

Total time running: 12 hours 10 minutes

Performed by Catherine Byers

In Pride and Prejudice, Austen takes a rather humorous view of the human condition. All of the characters in the novel are well developed and effective in the roles that they play. Through her astute characterizations, Austen brings to light our weaknesses in a way that inspires reflection of the human spirit, not denigration. Two hundred years later we are still relating to her characters as they laugh and cry through life. Who hasn’t felt unsteady upon falling in love? Who hasn’t felt embarrassed by certain relatives during those once-a-year gatherings? Who hasn’t suffered a pang of humiliation after wronging someone dear to us? As soon as Pride and Prejudice was published, Austen wrote a letter to her sister, Cassandra. It seems that overall Austen was satisfied with the work. However, she felt that “...The work is rather too light, and bright, and sparkling; it wants [i.e. needs] shade; it wants to be stretched out here and there with a long chapter of sense, if it could be had; if not, of solemn specious nonsense, about something unconnected with the story: an essay on writing, a critique on Walter Scott, or the history of Bonaparte, or anything that would form a contrast and bring the reader with increased delight to the playfulness and general epigrammatism of the general style". Regardless, Pride and Prejudice remains one of the most delightful and telling novels ever written – a spirited commentary on the endearing imperfections of mankind.
