Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

On this great tome's bicentennial
Let's explore its themes - perennial.
Romance thwarted, then regained
Manners shocking entertained.
Women's duties and their "rights"
Single ladies scandal blights.
First impressions make poor judges
Little served by holding grudges.
What a book! A splendid tale
With such context, could not fail.
