] I would argue that "Pride and Prejudice" belongs to that very exclusive club of books that transcend greatness into immortality. Calling P&P a romance, or a satire, or a social comedy, or a social commentary is like calling the "Hallelujah Chorus" a choir number. It just doesn't quite do it, does it?
I donīt think that it is important what label is put on P&P as regards genre, immortality, classism or whatever.
As regards myself, I simply love it, enjoy it, and never tire of reading it. And I cannot said as much of other books I have read. (and I have read a lot)!
