Duma i uprzedzenie

Duma i uprzedzenie

Na początku zeszłego stulecia niezbyt zamożny ojciec pięciu córek nader często musiał zadawać sobie pytanie: kiedyż to w sąsiedztwie pojawi się jakiś odpowiedni kawaler? A kiedy już się pojawił, następowały dalsze perypetie, które Jane Austen z upodobaniem opisywała.

Duma i uprzedzenie uważana jest za arcydzieło w dorobku tej angielskiej pisarki, głównie dzięki zabawnym, zgoła dickensowskim opisom postaci głupich i niesympatycznych. Znajdujemy tu także melancholijną refleksję nad władzą pieniądza i znaczeniem pozycji społecznej, decydujących o życiu młodej panny; a przede wszystkim znakomity, powściągliwy styl, doskonale oddający harmonię opisywanego świata...
