Jane Austen has always been a most favourite novelist! Her wit
and candor have always been truly impressive to those that
come upon her in one way or another.

Pride and Prejudice is a wake-up call for those that choose to display a tendency to hatefulness which they need not do, and
which they can instead control using their better instincts
and judgment. This is true of the character of Mr. Darcy who
nonetheless has his own idea of redeeming qualities I suppose,
guided by the alluring Ms. Elizabeth. I find myself personally
quite taken by Ms. Charlotte who it appears is resigned to her
lot in life absent of romantic fulfillment in what is an era
concerned with security and comfort in the basics of life
equally - or even more so perhaps.

As to the culture that saw many women as lower forms of
beings in some respect if their families didn't match in attainment
of wealth as similar levels to the superior achievers, or who might
be ostracized in all of their prospects for happiness or fortune
for the mishap of a single elopement in the family (and what
have you), thank goodness for progress in our world! It is an
education indeed to hear British culture as practiced at the time
described in the words used in plain fashion in this writing of Jane
Austen most particularly I think - amidst other such writers in
any event.

Lets decide to equally render obsolete (anachronistic in respect
of propriety) the musings of Mr. Darcy who Miss Elizabeth describes
as a man lacking true virtue at the start in that he displays too
much of a propensity to hate all that he encounters rather than
putting some more sense into his views as she thinks he might do
instead.

In any event, her beauty and charm win the day as he is certainly
won over in his efforts to improve himself morally in this respect.

All's well that ends well - A great story in perhaps what remains
the most celebrated of novels ever written in the English language.

By the way, whether its this series or the Upstairs Downstairs
series etc - the British have an unequaled mind for what is
supremely beautiful music to the ears around Europe I say!
