     For decades, it has been one of the most cherished teen novels,

     For decades, it has been one of the most cherished teen novels, full of intriguing relationships, romance, and suspense. A masterpiece of romance, this novel has gone done in history as one of the most well-known and beloved classics. In her widely renown tale, Austen takes the readers on a journey in which the characters discover different sides to themselves that had been lying dormant within them. 
    Austen writes her most famous piece in the early decades of the 19th century, an era in which realism and breaking away from traditional, mainstream thought was in favor. The novel itself is centered around the error in society’s norms, focusing primarily on those involved in choosing a marital life companion. Even the opening line is committed directly to stating, “ It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”. Pride and Prejudice is not a typical love at first sight kind of novel. In fact Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, the primary interest of the novel, cannot even find it within themselves to endure a single dance together. Instead, the novel provides the reader with the opportunity to watch the characters grow and mature in the course of merely a handful of chapters.
    Austen successfully creates an entire storyline filled with wit, humor, and romance in which characters are provided with the opportunity to grow and mature. Mr. Darcy, for example, turns from being a seeming proud and arrogant man to being a passionate, gentle, giving, and loving man who devotes himself to try and get in the good graces of Elizabeth Bennet, the woman he has so desperately fallen in love with.
    The purpose of the novel was to single out the flaws in the way society seems to work. All eligible men and women are seeking to marry for various purposes such as for love, for money, for security (in terms of having someone who can provide a safe life with a roof over their heads and food to eat), etc. Austen classifies each of these relationships within her novel and provides more insight into the way courtships blossomed hundreds of years ago. 
    In her novel, Austen is successfully able to point out that we as humans have a fatal flaw in that we tend to judge and classify too quickly rather than making a safe assumption after really getting to know one another. Austen take on a huge risk in portraying these flaws within the characters of her story because women of that time period were far more soft spoken than they are now. Throughout the pages of her writings, Austen is able to successfully convey the result of judging one too quickly; Mr. Darcy disapproves of Jane, thinking that she shows no interest in Mr. Bingley, who quickly falls head of heels for her. However, as it is later discovered, Jane was far too unwilling to let her feelings be known to someone so close as her sister, Elizabeth. Austen is able to create a classic literary masterpiece that has withstood the test of time with ever prevalent themes of love, pride and prejudice.
