In a remote Hertfordshire village, far off the good coach roads of George III's England, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet -- a country squire of no great means and his scatterbrained wife -- must marry off their five vivacious daughters. At the heart of this all-consuming enterprise are the headstrong second daughter Elizabeth and her aristocratic suitor Fitzwilliam Darcy, two lovers in whom pride and prejudice must be overcome before love can bring the novel to its magnificent conclusion.

Chapter One


It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.

"My dear Mr. Bennet," said his lady to him one day, "have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?"

Mr. Bennet replied that he had not.

"But it is," returned she; "for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it."

Mr. Bennet made no answer.

"Do not you want to know who has taken it?" cried his wife impatiently. "You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it."

This was invitation enough.

"Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it that he agreed with Mr. Morris immediately; that he is to take possession before Michaelmas, and some of his servants are to be in the house by the end of next week."

"What is his name?"

"Bingley."

"Is he married or single?"

"Oh! single, my dear, to be sure! A single man of large fortune; four or five thousand a year. What a fine thing for our girls!"

"How so? How can it affect them?"

"My dear Mr. Bennet," replied his wife, "how can you be so tiresome! You must know that I am thinking of his marrying one of them."

"Is that his design in settling here?"

"Design! nonsense, how can you talk so! But it is very likely that he may fall in love with one of them, and therefore you must visit him as soon as he comes."

"I see no occasion for that. You and the girls may go, or you may send them by themselves, which perhaps will be still better, for as you are as handsome as any of them, Mr. Bingley might like you the best of the party."

"My dear, you flatter me. I certainly have had my share of beauty, but I do not pretend to be anything extraordinary now. When a woman has five grown-up daughters, she ought to give over thinking of her own beauty."

"In such cases, a woman has not often much beauty to think of."

"But, my dear, you must indeed go and see Mr. Bingley when he comes into the neighbourhood."

"It is more than I engage for, I assure you."

"But consider your daughters. Only think what an establishment it would be for one of them. Sir William and Lady Lucas are determined to go, merely on that account, for in general you know they visit no newcomers. Indeed you must go, for it will be impossible for us to visit him if you do not."

"You are over scrupulous surely. I dare say Mr. Bingley will be very glad to see you; and I will send a few lines by you to assure him of my hearty consent to his marrying whichever he chooses of the girls; though I must throw in a good word for my little Lizzy."

"I desire you will do no such thing. Lizzy is not a bit better than the others; and I am sure she is not half so handsome as Jane, nor half so good-humoured as Lydia. But you are always giving her the preference."

"They have none of them much to recommend them," replied he; "they are all silly and ignorant like other girls; but Lizzy has something more of quickness than her sisters."

"Mr. Bennet, how can you abuse your own children in such a way? You take delight in vexing me. You have no compassion on my poor nerves."

"You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least."

"Ah! you do not know what I suffer."

"But I hope you will get over it, and live to see many young men of four thousand a year come into the neighbourhood."

"It will be no use to us if twenty such should come since you will not visit them."

"Depend upon it, my dear, that when there are twenty, I will visit them all."

Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three and twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her mind was less difficult to develop. She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper. When she was discontented she fancied herself nervous. The business of her life was to get her daughters married; its solace was visiting and news.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 LE chef d'oeuvre de la littérature anglo-saxonne 6 décembre 2013
Par Tinkerbell TOP 50 COMMENTATEURS

Avoir en sa possession le plus grand chef d’œuvre de la littérature anglo-saxonne, ça n'a pas de prix ! Mais quand, en plus, Amazon le propose gratuitement, il faut être dingue pour ne pas sauter dessus !!!!!!!

Une peinture romanesque à la fois belle, piquante et saisissante de réalisme de la société anglaise du XVIIIème siècle. Jane Austen y aborde notamment les questions relatives aux femmes et à la nécessité pour elles d'assurer leur sécurité financière et leur statut social, souvent par le mariage.

L'héroïne, Elizabeth Bennet, sort du lot des femmes de l'époque : vive, pleine d'esprit et malicieuse, elle est intelligente et un brin impertinent. Le héros, Fitzwilliam Darcy, est pour sa part ombrageux, fier, droit et rigide, également soumis aux codes de l'époque qui l'obligent à épouser une femme bien née, de condition au moins équivalente à la sienne...
Comment briser les codes imposés par la société ? C'est tout l'intérêt du roman.

C'est beau, bien écrit, vif et drôle. On ne s'ennuie pas une minute et c'est un vrai bonheur à lire et à relire !!!!!!

A CONSOMMER SANS MODERATION !!!!!

Si vous le pouvez, lisez ce livre en version originale. Il est d'un anglais relativement accessible, et l'écriture de Jane Austen est une merveille de délicatesse et d'ironie habilement cachée.
à défaut, regardez le film en VO (avec Keira Kneithley et Matthew McFaddyen) ou si vous la trouvez, la série de la BBC avec Colin Firth (réputée géniale) ; ou encore l'excellente adaptation de "Sense and Sensibility" d'Ang Lee, avec une distribution d'excellence et une réalisation tout en finesse.

J'aime beaucoup l'écriture de Jane Austen, hyperconsciente des fonctionnements de sa société dont elle offre un superbe témoignage, sa plume est fine, efficace mais totalement surannée. C'est amusant à lire, c'est savoureux mais c'est aussi diablement cousu de fil blanc.

Quelle découverte que ce grand classique de la littérature! Jane Austen parvient à retransmettre avec beaucoup de précision et de style les sentiments des personnages et nous donne un bel aperçu des problèmes engendrés par les questions de mariage à son époque. A lire et à relire.
