Description

This first-ever fully annotated edition of one of the most beloved novels in the world is a sheer delight for Jane Austen fans. Here is the complete text of Pride and Prejudice with more than 2,300 annotations on facing pages, including:

  • Explanations of historical context

    Rules of etiquette, class differences, the position of women, legal and economic realities, leisure activities, and more.

  • Citations from Austen's life, letters, and other writings

    Parallels between the novel and Austen's experience are revealed, along with writings that illuminate her beliefs and opinions.

  • Definitions and clarifications

    Archaic words, words still in use whose meanings have changed, and obscure passages are explained.

  • Literary comments and analyses

    Insightful notes highlight Austen's artistry and point out the subtle ways she develops her characters and themes.

  • Maps and illustrations

    of places and objects mentioned in the novel.

  • An introduction, a bibliography, and a detailed chronology of events

    Of course, one can enjoy the novel without knowing the precise definition of a gentleman, or what it signifies that a character drives a coach rather than a hack chaise, or the rules governing social interaction at a ball, but readers of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice will find that these kinds of details add immeasurably to understanding and enjoying the intricate psychological interplay of Austen's immortal characters.
