  • SUMMARY
    • Pride and Prejudice is the story of Mrs. and Mr. Bennet and their five daughters, Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Catherine and Lydia. The story focuses on various romantic adventures these young girls encounter at their residence. Their parents are strikingly contrasting to each other. Mr. Bennet comes across as a wise and witty gentleman, while the issue of marrying off her daughters has absorbed Mrs. Bennet completely. The arrival of the young and wealthy bachelor Charles Bingley and his friend Fitzwilliam Darcy adds a new twist to Austen's tale. It is the story of the various fondness, mannerisms and engagement pranks that develop due to Mrs. Bennet's insistent matchmaking and the dashing Darcy's passionate relationship with Elizabeth Bennet.
