An All Time Fav Classical!!!
Posted July 02, 2009
By teague,


I cannot even begin to tell you how splendidly magnificent Jane Austenís works are. They have a beautiful intensity that is kept in bounds by her witty observations of the world her characters spend their time in. There exists enough realism so that the reader can understand the characterís reactions, emotions and thoughts, while day-dream inspiring enough to make you lie awake at night and imagine yourself meeting your Mr. DarcyÖ

Pride and Prejudice is particularly brilliant, but itís probably because I am well, being a slight bit prejudice  since it was my first work of Jane Austenís. Another factor influencing my exceptional awe of this book is how universal it is. Not only does one hear references of the Bennetís or the ever-handsome Darcy quite often, but many a girl can relate to what occurs in the story.

For all those that are only now discovering this gem of a book, the story journeys with the girls (or ladies, rather) of the Bennet family. More specifically itís about Elizabeth Bennet (the eldest sister) and the stir of emotion within her when the dream-inspiring Mr. Darcy makes his appearance. This is a very short summary, but Iíd rather say that the value of the book exists in the conversations and thoughts of the characters instead of the story itself.

Jane Austen had the ability to create a gentle satire within a passionate romance (maybe you donít understand that I call this passionate, but I believe that emotions so overwhelming, but kept under control until the truth and reliability of the love can be determined, are so much more passionate than the infatuation, jittery-type passion so popular in books nowadays) while keeping the story-line interesting, yet simple.

This is one of the ground works that I have based so much of my personality and dreams on. Elizabeth is an innocent, sweet girl combined with a witty, contemplative woman. Mr. Darcy is difficult to understand, but he receives the Ďdeep-charmí award (from the committee of Teague). This just means that he is expressive, without saying anything; mature, without being old and handsome without having an ego. In other words, the perfect man (yes, he is shy and irritatingly stubborn and Iím sure he has a few other Ďquirksí, but this is as perfect as they come).

The remainder of the characters are treated with enough interest and care that the story remains varied, resulting in an even more splendid novel.

This is a must-read:
Classic literature has never been better!
