Is there really any point in reading Pride and Prejudice?
« on: 17 September, 2018, 08:51:36 PM »
I amazes me that Pride and Prejudice seems to come top of almost every poll asking "What are the top ten greatest novels?".
I can't stand it.
It makes me queasy just trying to read it.
Am I missing something?
Has it any relevance in the 21st century?
What, if anything, is the value in ploughing through what I think is just an eloquent load of old cobblers?
