Great writers draw on the vast reservoir of universal life to fashion stories, characters, action and consequences. Regardless of the author’s conscious intention, what is portrayed is true in character if not in fact to the fundamental realities of human nature, the life of society and life as a universal plane.
Come, see illustrated a new approach to literary criticism based on the premise that great literature represents in story form truths of human action, individual character, social character, the character of life and spiritual evolution.
Let us utilize the characters, circumstances and events in Pride and Prejudice to illustrate the principles and process of human accomplishment.
