I had to read it for AP English and I could not see the point Girls need to marry Girls can t get married Girls are sad Girls get married Girls are happy.
I went to school to half heartedly discuss it and waffled and wavered in an effort to please my teacher Finally she said was it good or not, Ben No it wasn t Thank younow read this twenty pages of literary criticism for homework Twenty pages of literary criticism later, I was hooked Once you know what to look for, it s hilarious Once you re keyed into the contextual life of women, you have to feel for the plight of the Bennet sisters, and laugh at the crudity of their mother and Mr Collins.
So yes I m a guy and I love Jane I was forced to read this by my future wife.
I was not, however, forced to give it 5 stars.
