The morals in Pride and Prejudice are put into relatable context to the real world. I am sure it will affect the reader’s viewpoint in one way or another, as it did for me.

Although racism as a notion is the same for both individual and institutional purposes, the consequences of the two are vastly different.

Pride and Prejudice, probably the most popular of Austen's finished novels, was also, in a sense, the first to be composed. The original version, First Impressions, was completed by 1797, but was rejected for publication - no copy of the original has survived. The work was rewritten around 1812 and published in 1813 as Pride and Prejudice. Austen's works, including Pride and Prejudice, were barely noticed by critics during her lifetime.

Pride and Prejudice began getting serious attention in the 1940s and has continued to be studied heavily since that time.
