If you are a student of literature then there is perhaps no doubt that at one point of your university life, you will read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice novel. Today, I thought that why this book is included in the syllabus almost every country. Well, Pride and Prejudice is one of the first real novels in English literature. It has an attractive plot and the theme is love, marriage and wealth. This is something still relevant in our own time. So, it is very easy for many of us to relate to the novel. Another thing is that it is a social novel and the story is good for making a movie.
I like the art of characterization of Jane Austen here. She could go into deep of her characters. The five Bennet sisters were different from one another and she could show the difference very well. I also like the description of nature.
So, if you have already read it then you can again go through it. If you have not read it yet then you should get it done right away. Best thing is that you can download it free and you can find all the information about Pride and Prejudice in this entry of Wikipedia (including free downlink link): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice
