  • Pride and Prejudice - Chapter 1 - Brtish Accent Reading - Jane Austen - British Pronunciation - PRIDE AND PREJUDICE By Jane Austen

  • Chapter 1

  • 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 the rightful property

  • of someone 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 you not 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

  • may 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 for 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 last 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.
