Spring-series VI.

Springtime ignites a whole new attitude in city dwellers. The heavy layers shed, the Frisbees start flying, and a state of happiness sets in. With sunny weather comes happy days.

Even when it rains outside, we’ve got some idea what to do indoors. Let’s start with something gracious, something very english – a required reading for day-dreamers:

Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is one of the best-loved novels of all time and today, it's more popular than ever.

When the wealthy and very eligible bachelor Charles Bingley purchases an estate in the Bennets' small town, he and the beautiful Jane immediately fall in love. 

But Bingley's arrogant friend Darcy just as quickly alienates Lizzy when she overhears him speaking dismissively of her.
These first impressions have lasting repercussions for Jane, Elizabeth, and their whole family.

Rich in wit and wisdom, humor and humanity, Pride and Prejudice takes a probing, entertaining look at the nature of love, money, and power in Georgian England.

“A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”                                    Jane Austen
