Jane Austen?s novels are set in her upper middle-class English country environment. They centre around a young heroine and after a series of coincident and exciting events, end in a happy marriage. Austen’s literary skill and moral understanding have converted her novels into classics. The title pride and prejudice reflect the main attributes of the hero, Darcy and the heroine, Elizabeth. Love blossoms only when both of them overcome these chief obstacles in the way.
