"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
"Yth yw gwrioneth aswonys gans pùbonen, mars eus fortyn brâs gans den heb demedhy, yma otham dhodho a wreg."
Pride and Prejudice, the best known of Jane Austen's six novels, was first published in 1813. It is highly regarded for the acute description of its characters and because of its ironic style. The novel tells how Elizabeth Bennet meets Mr Darcy and takes an immediate dislike to him. In the course of the story her attitude to him gradually changes and in the end she realizes both that her family is greatly indebted to him and that she herself admires and loves him for his goodness, his generosity and his constancy. There are many more notable characters in the novel, in particular beautiful and affectionate Jane, Elizabeth's older sister; Mrs Bennet, their foolish mother; and their wild and unruly younger sister Lydia. The other memorable actors in the story include gentle and amiable Mr Bingley; Mr Wickam, the plausible scoundrel; William Collins, the ridiculous clergyman; and his appalling patronness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
