A Pair of Blue Eyes is a classic novel from the 19th century that deals with the topics of love, jealousy and personal development. It also gives you an insight on how society worked during the Victorian Age. The story follows the young and innocent Elfride, who struggles with her ambition and emotions after falling in love with two men of different backgrounds. The language level is hard to understand and the sentence structure is often sophisticated, but therefore each moment is described in great detail.
