`She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me; and I am in no humour at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men.'

Jane Austen's 1813 novel paints a witty picture of Georgian society, showing through the ups and downs of the five Bennet sisters the lengths to which women must go to secure a husband and position - and, in Elizabeth's case, to find a marriage of true minds.
