Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Elizabeth Bennett has too much sense to agree to marry the obsequious Mr. Collins, and too much pride to defer to the arrogant Mr. Darcy. Has she sense and humility enough to admit a serious error in judgment?

Barbara's Notes: Pride and Prejudice is on many high school required reading lists. It has strong male characters to justify its addition to our selection. (Grades 9, 10, 11)
