Es ésta la novela más popular de Jane Austen (1775-1817), considerada por la mayor parte de los críticos como una obra maestra. En ella, todos los elementos del equilibrado y sobrio arte de la escritora alcanzan su mejor expresión. La obra debe gran parte de su popularidad al brío y a la agudeza con que son creados algunos personajes cómicos, como el amenísimo pastor Collins, uno de los figurones más célebres de la literatura inglesa. Con unos pocos y sencillos rasgos, Jane Austen traza unas figuras tan eficaces, que alcanzan un relieve que las hace inolvidables. ¿Por qué Jane Austen vuelve una y otra vez a través del tiempo, como si nunca hubiera dejado de escribir? Quienes han estudiado su obra aseguran que sus novelas están repletas de observaciones incisivas y detalles meticulosos, y que en todas está presente un tema característico: el alcance de la madurez a través de la pérdida de ilusiones. Sus personajes son provincianos de clase media, cuya máxima preocupación es conseguir un buen pasar económico y, su mayor ambición, el matrimonio. Y la perennidad de Austen quizá sugiera la confirmación de que las cosas no han cambiado tanto como parece desde el siglo XVIII. La presión de las convenciones, el rígido sistema de castas, el protagonismo del dinero como motor social no harán sino alimentar dramáticamente un romance conflictivo, que está destinado a consumarse, pero no sin antes haber atravesado esa ajustada red de tabúes culturales que rodean a la pareja cenral.
