Pride And Prejudice, written in 1813 by Jane Austen, can be categorised in the romance genre. Throughout the whole book, we follow the Bennet family in their adventures as they grow and test the relationships between them in the unique way that it could be done in the Victorian era. The book is light enough not to burden the reader but it reaches the plot’s peak in such a wonderful way that the reader will enjoy being absorbed in the story. I recommend this book because it can distract from the current life problems and still teach valuable lessons about self-worth, respect and love.
Jane Eyre, written in 1847 by Charlotte Brontë, is another piece of wonderful Victorian literature. Jane is an orphan kid raised by her cruel aunt until she begins her own adventure when she is sent to a boarding school. Jane goes through a lot of painful lessons but comes out as a strong, young woman, transmitting the hope in people that if she could do it, everyone can do it. That chasing our dreams should be our main goal in our life because they are worth fighting for. I recommend this book because it was the first time I thought that I can bring my dreams into reality and decided I wanted to take my chance. This happened in a very young age but I hold this lesson dear to me.
