⊆ Online Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for kids ⊹ By Seth Grahame Smith ⋕ ⊆ Online Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for kids ⊹ By Seth Grahame Smith ⋕ It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. Next to the exhortation at the beginning of Moby Dick, Call me Ishmael, the first sentence of Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice must be among the most quoted in literature And certainly what Melville did for whaling Austen does for marriage tracing the intricacies not to mention the economics of 19th century British mating rituals with a sure hand and an unblinking eye As usual, Austen trains her sights on a country village and a few families in this case, the Bennets, the Philips, and the Lucases Into their midst comes Mr Bingley, a single man of good fortune, and his friend, Mr Darcy, who is even richer Mrs Bennet, who married above her station, sees their arrival as an opportunity to marry off at least one of her five daughters Bingley is complaisant and easily charmed by the eldest Bennet girl, Jane Darcy, however, is harder to please Put off by Mrs Bennet s vulgarity and the untoward behavior of the three younger daughters, he is unable to see the true worth of the older girls, Jane and Elizabeth His excessive pride offends Lizzy, who is than willing to believe the worst that other people have to say of him when George Wickham, a soldier stationed in the village, does indeed have a discreditable tale to tell, his words fall on fertile ground Having set up the central misunderstanding of the novel, Austen then brings in her cast of fascinating secondary characters Mr Collins, the sycophantic clergyman who aspires to Lizzy s hand but settles for her best friend, Charlotte, instead Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Mr Darcy s insufferably snobbish aunt and the Gardiners, Jane and Elizabeth s low born but noble hearted aunt and uncle Some of Austen s best comedy comes from mixing and matching these representatives of different classes and economic strata, demonstrating the hypocrisy at the heart of so many social interactions And though the novel is rife with romantic misunderstandings, rejected proposals, disastrous elopements, and a requisite happy ending for those who deserve one, Austen never gets so carried away with the romance that she loses sight of the hard economic realities of 19th century matrimonial maneuvering Good marriages for penniless girls such as the Bennets are hard to come by, and even Lizzy, who comes to sincerely value Mr Darcy, remarks when asked when she first began to love him It has been coming on so gradually, that I hardly know when it began But I believe I must date it from my first seeing his beautiful grounds at Pemberley She may be joking, but there s than a little truth to her sentiment, as well Jane Austen considered Elizabeth Bennet as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print Readers of Pride and Prejudice would be hard pressed to disagree Alix Wilberwonderland revisited Spanish illustrator Angel Dominguez fills an unabridged edition of Lewis Carroll s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland with 75 watercolors, most of them closely packed with lush oversized flowers, strange creatures and winding vines reminiscent of Art Nouveau often against bizarrely serene pastoral backgrounds Exotic birds and animals, such as peacocks and zebras, wander through the picture frame While the illustrations bring out the text s absurdity, pretty in pink Alice provides a counterpoint not of normalcy but of sentimentality.Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
