The story of witty but prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet and her picturesque family is considered one of the most important in British literature. As a perfect expert in manner novels Jane Austen studies the relationships of the Bennets with other families and acquaintances in an extremely clever and eloquent way. Her favourite characters - Lizzy, Mrs. Bennet and Lydia are often lively and charismatic but also haughty and headstrong. Still, they make complete angels in comparison to the pompous and reserved Darcies. On the whole, the high society of her time was extremely annoying and plain for the writer herself. The main purpose in life for the Bennet girls as also for all others is to get married successfully otherwise you will be a burden for your family. Curiously, here already we can see feminist notes as Jane Austen writes about men being free to do what they want and women bound to look back as to what the society would say. The Bennet girls all follow different path even while pursuing their dream about marrying, so some of them will find true love but others are to be badly deceived. This intelligent and highly entertaining book shows all the sides of the society and women's role in it.
