Jane Austen’s classic novel begins: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” And so the Bennet daughters—Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia—are set in motion when Mr. Bingley lets Netherfield Park, bringing Mr. Darcy to their neighborhood. Jane Austen’s masterpiece of country life in Regency England sparkles with humor and irony.
