Pride and Prejudice . . . Timeless”

Though Pride and Prejudice may be regarded as timeless, nevertheless within the novel Austen plots her time very carefully.  Timing is everything for important relationships and events. And the characters are deeply connected to the time in which they live, which is both like and unlike our times.  What do we discover about time, times, or timeliness from reading Pride and Prejudice?
