Kylie and Kendall Jenner along with their half sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian may be a modern-day Pride and Prejudice.
Apparently, the Kardashian sisters have quite a bit in common with the Bennet sisters from Jane Austen’s most famous work.
Austen fans will probably not be too happy about the comparison between the trashy Kardashian’s and the dignified Bennet sisters.
A journalist for The Huffington Post UK says that Kylie and Kendall’s efforts to be seen in society like their older sisters is one connection between the Kardashians and the Bennets. However, the biggest connection is Kris Jenner, of which the journalist says:
“Mrs Bennet is an overbearing, over-sharing social climber of a mother, hell-bent on getting her daughters married off to the most eligible bachelor. Swap the arranged marriages for superficial business deals and public appearances and you’ve pretty much summed up Kris Jenner to a tee. Not to mention her husband Bruce acting just as passively as Mrs Bennet’s other half.”
Obviously there are a lot of similarities between the Kardashian family (and Kylie and Kendall Jenner) and the Bennet family, but for some reason it seems doubtful that the Kardashian’s will be as much-loved as the Bennet’s in years to come!
