Is there really any point in reading Pride and Prejudice?
« on: 17 September, 2018, 08:51:36 PM »
It amazes me that Pride and Prejudice always seems to come top of almost
every poll to find "The top ten greatest English novels of all time".

Pride and Prejudice? Me? I can't stand Pride and Prejudice.
It makes me queasy just trying to read it. Then it bores me to sleep.
Am I missing something?
Has Pride and Prejudice any real relevance for us in the 21st century?
What (if anything) is the value in wading through a novel that I reckon is
just an eloquent load of outdated old cobblers?
Or am I wrong?
