 Pride and Prejudice
 傲慢与偏见
 by Jane Austen
 简·奥斯汀  著

 Chapter 1
   第一章
 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
 世界上有这么一条公认的真理,那就是:一个有钱的单身男人,一定需要一位妻子。

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 some one or other of their daughters.
不过当这样一个男人或许是第一次住进隔壁,甚至还不知道他的感受和观点时,这条真理用于形容左邻右舍的心理却再合适不过了,他已被认为是她们某个女儿的合适之选。

 "My dear Mr. Bennet," said his lady to him one day, "have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?"
“我最亲爱的班纳特先生, ”有一天他的妻子这样对他说“Netherfield庄园终于租出去了,你听说了吗?”
 

Mr. Bennet replied that he had not.
 班纳特先生回答他没有。

 "But it is," returned she; "for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it."
 “的确是这样,”她继续说“朗夫人刚刚来过这儿,她就告诉了我有关这件事的一切。”

 Mr. Bennet made no answer.
 班纳特先生没有吭声。

 "Do you not want to know who has taken it?" cried his wife impatiently.
 “你就不想知道是谁租了它吗?!”他的妻子不耐烦的嚷道。

 "YOU want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it."
 “你一定要告诉我,我也不反对。”

 This was invitation enough.
 这对班纳特太太来说已是足够的肯定了。

 "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."
“呐,我亲爱的,你一定得知道。据朗太太说是一位很有钱的从北英格兰来的年轻男人租下了Netherfield庄园,他周一乘着轻便马车带着四个仆人来参观,看得出他很喜欢那儿,因为他立即就和莫里斯先生定下了契约。他将在米迦勒节前接手庄园,并且他的部分仆人在下周末之前就会搬进去。 ”
