We leave Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice at the point where Mr. Darcy, having proposed to Elizabeth Bennet and been summarily rejected, takes heed of her scorn and rectifies the mistakes he has made. He tells the truth about the charming but unscrupulous Mr. Wickham and promises to rectify his other mistake, which is that of separating Mr. Bingley from her sister, Jane, thus breaking her heart. He bribes Wickham to marry Elizabeth's youngest sister, Lydia, who has run off with him to forestall the ruination of the Bennet family. Elizabeth, her feelings for him changed radically as she realizes his inherent goodness and regrets her prejudice against him, welcomes the increasing intimacy between herself and Mr. Darcy. And when trouble rears its ugly head, they find that their love wins over every adversity.
