Rediscover one of fiction's original female heroines with a trip down memory lane.

Written in 1813, Jane Austen's novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, an unmarried member of the landed gentry in English society. She is intelligent and quick-witted, making her a fierce literary figure whom many women admire.

The story (and her tenacity) has brought readers back continually for over 200 years.
