Pride and Prejudice is a romantic novel written by English author Jane Austen. The novel was originally published anonymously in 1813. At the time, women were often expected to marry into wealthy families. The story’s protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet, is a young woman who feels pressured by her family to marry for money. When her sisters and friends are all starting to find husbands, Elizabeth meets a wealthy man named Mr. Darcy. Darcy is interested in Elizabeth, and asks her to marry him. At first, Elizabeth has no interest in his proposal. She believes Darcy is arrogant and selfish, and she refuses to marry someone she doesn’t love. Throughout the book, however, Darcy grows into a person that Elizabeth can respect, and Elizabeth realizes that she judged him too harshly when they first met. The story ends with the two of them happily married.

Ulises Rojas S. says:
1) When she refuses to marry someone she doesn’t love, she was with this actitude, denousing, the social´s conventionalism of feminism´s discrimination like a object.
2) Maybe was so very hard, this denunciation of iniquity in that society
Dania M Garcia says:
this was great
maybe the characters are real reflections of people in her close circle of friends or relatives that such a story with her name on it could negatively affect her relationships and accuse her of being irresponsible of keeping their private life secrets while not choosing a title is a matter of confusion because of diversity of situations and actions that she can’t pick a title that reflects a unique event

I liked the Elizabeth story.
The story takes place in 1813. How to imagine a women who chooses her husbands alone ? I understand why she wrote anonymously.
Pride and prejudice is one of our usual common mistakes.
