IRJE Pride and Prejudice

The book that I am reading is called Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I find it very interesting, it is a very revolutionary feminist novel, its about a very complicated relationship between Elizabeth Bennet who is the daughter of a county gentlemen and Darcy who’s a rich man. It shows the adventures and the adventures of their love. This novel starts with the quote” it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. ” p1 . For me this sentence opens up and shows us what the whole novel will be about . We can say it”s going to be about marriage and at is says “universally acknowledged” we can determine is going to be about gossip or misunderstandings . This line is all about Ironi , Why? you might ask , well nowadays is not usually for a men to seek for marriage, it also says “must be” as if getting married had to be the only option . It”s true that some women want to find a husband for a good lifestyle but Austen turned around as since a rich man HAS to have a wife. I think it”s funny in some way because it shows how moms and daughters are in a competition for this young man .
