Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (1813)

The novel follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist of the book who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. Its humor lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Great Britain.  The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love rather than money or social prestige, despite the communal pressure to make a wealthy match.
