Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen, Sylvia Hunt Cover Image

Pride and Prejudice is a protofeminist critique of contemporary education and marriage that aligns Austen less with sentimental novelists like Fanny Burney and Maria Edgeworth and more with feminist thinkers like Mary Wollstonecraft. Austen' s humour is deceptive; beneath the surface lays a deep dissatisfaction with the type of life the term “ gentility” forces on women.
