Book Overview
Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read . Publicada originalmente en 1813, Orgullo y prejuicio es una de las obras maestras de la literatura inglesa de todos los tiempos. A lo largo de una trama que discurre con la precisi n de un mecanismo de relojer a, Jane Austen perfila una galer a de personajes que conforman un perfecto y sutil retrato de la poca: las peripecias de una dama empe ada en casar a sus hijas con el mejor partido de la regi n, los vaivenes sentimentales de las hermanas, el oportunismo de un cl rigo adulador... El trazado de los caracteres y el an lisis de las relaciones humanas sometidas a un r gido c digo de costumbres, elementos esenciales de la narrativa de la autora, alcanzan en Orgullo y prejuicio cotas de maestr a insuperable. La presente edici n incluye una detallada cronolog a de la autora. Asimismo recupera la introducci n original de Penguin Cl sicos acargo de Tony Tanner, que desarroll su carrera como catedr tico de literatura inglesa y norteamericana en la Universidad de Cambridge. Sus acertadas reflexiones sobre la obra de Jane Austen son la mejor gu a para adentrarse en el universo literario de esta autora. Pero mi locura no ha sido el amor sino la vanidad. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Austen's most popular novel, the unforgettable story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read Few have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet in Austen's beloved classic Pride and Prejudice . When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows us the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life. This Penguin Classics edition, based on Austen's first edition, contains the original Penguin Classics introduction by Tony Tanner and an updated introduction and notes by Viven Jones. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
