About Pride and Prejudice:
"It is probable that no English novel written in the last hundred and fifty years has been as well loved, and so often re-read with delight, as Pride and Prejudice. Other books surpass it in stormy grandeur; other novels by Jane Austen herself, richer in detail or more gracious in beauty, are sometimes preferred by her ardent admirers; but Pride and Prejudice has a bloom, a laughing causticity, and a quite specially familiar charm, which make it universally a favourite. It is like a merry sister in a family of attractive girls; and one never thinks of it without a smile."
—Frank Arthur Swinnerton (1884-1982)
