Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen 

This romantic comedy of English landed gentry in 1800s tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet’s five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr Darcy, have moved into their neighborhood.

Why?  Celebrating the 200 anniversary of Jane Austen’s death in 1817 is as good an excuse as any to revisit this novel that deals with so many elements of a family and society, and continues to be loved and read to this day— even though it wasn’t nominated for any awards!  You’ve read it before?  I assure you that it gets better every time you read it. Of course it deals with white male privilege.  And besides, we need some levity to balance these other serious works.
