Published in 1813 by Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice follows the Bennett Family and their five daughters: Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia. During a time when women were expected to get married to the first man that offered, Jane and Elizabeth still manage to believe fairytales can happen. Rebelling against their mother’s obsession with marriage, they attempt to find true love with the men of their choice.
As a kid, I was always been obsessed with this perspective of true love. You can imagine why Pride and Prejudice is my favorite novel. Like Elizabeth, I have a strong mind and a witty personality. She’s my favorite character because I can relate to her the most. She speaks her mind when she is passionate about something. She also stands up for herself and the people she loves, regardless of the consequences.
Although arranged marriages are no longer the norm, true love is still under attack during these modern times. It’s often mocked and betrayed. Against the odds and amidst the dying popularity of a monogamous relationship free from infidelity, I still found the one I am meant to be with. In a society where appearance and money fuel people, I still find a way to be fueled by the idea of true love.
“The more I see of the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it, and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistencies of all human.”
“In vain have I struggled, it will not do. My feels will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
“Her hear did whisper that he had done it for her.”
“I am determined that nothing but the deepest love could ever induce me into matrimony.”
