This is a Modern reimagination of past literature.


 PRIDE AND PREJUDICE ANALYSIS After two hundred and two years of its first publication, pride and prejudice still  remains one of the most sought-after novels. The reasons behind its popularity are many, but to name a few that are particularly my favorite is the idea of a coveted freedom portrayed by almost all the characters, specifically the females and more specifically the ‘relatively poor females'. Who can deny that Elizabeth Bennet with all her impertinent remarks, sly comments are the epitome of freedom both mental and physical in the novel. Her frank accusations (specially to Darcy) and her fierce determination to walk three miles to Nether field Park to look after her ill sister with "her petticoat, six inches deep in mud", is another example of her strong will. Not to mention her adamant refusal of two offers of marriage in a patriarchal society, one being the future master of her house and the other, the richest man of ton, and her refusal to step down in face of intimidation (referring to various occasions but specifically Lady Catherine's visit) she was the idol for every woman two hundred years ago and still is. Another big factor that ensures pride and prejudice's constant publication, is the offer of an ideal romantic relationship. Mr. Darcy the most sought-after bachelor of London ton, is the most handsome male character, who embodied all the coveted virtues of honesty, loyalty, kindness and generosity, with the addition of having a progressive thinking. More than anything, his ability to accept his mistakes and make efforts to change himself while remaining steadfastly loyal in his love for the one woman who refuses him, is commendable. His passionate words in the first proposal or the passionate but also humble in the second one doesn't hurt his case. " In vain have I struggled, this will not do, my feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you" or " You are too generous to trifle with me, of your feelings are what they were last April tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged but one word from you will silence me on this subject forever". Of course, it does not hurt that he also conveniently rich and owns the most beautiful house - Pemberley. Apart from the appeal of a feminist perspective and freedom, the appeal of the most romantic love story, the writing style of Jane Austen is another lucrative reason why this book is perused more than once with the same level of excitement and ecstatic suspense. Her style of writing is something that collide with the then rules of polite society but often her wit, humor and sarcasm charms the reader into reading and rereading. Her gracefully humorous tone coinciding with her descriptions of the absurdity in human behavior are aptly described in characters of Mrs. Bennet, Sir William Lucas, Mr. Collins to name a few. She expresses the ignorance of people to reflect the common criticism of the 18th century. Her shrewd observations of the human follies are described in an economical narrative style, eluding to more, using fewer words. Lady Catherine says to Elizabeth on one occasion, which seems to be applicable to Austen as well, "you give your opinion very decidedly for so young a person" since Austen began writing First Impressions (previous title of pride and prejudice) at the age of 21. On a concluding note I cannot help but agree with Oxford philosopher Gilbert Ryle who was once asked if he ever read novels. 'Oh yes,' he replied. 'All six, every year.'
