About the Authors
  • Named in many surveys as Britain’s best-loved work of fiction, Pride and Prejudice is now a global brand, with film and television adaptations making Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy household names. With a combination of original readings and factual background information, this Companion investigates some of the sources of the novel’s power. It explores key themes and topics in detail: money, land, characters and style. The history of the book’s composition and first publication is set out, both in individual essays and in the section of chronology. Chapters on the critical reception, adaptations and cult of the novel reveal why it has become an enduing classic with a unique and timeless appeal.

    • Marking the 200th anniversary of the first publication
    • Written for the general reader as well as for students and researchers
    • Includes much factual information on the novel's history and reception as well as fresh readings of key themes
