In this, Hannah Mores only novel and an early nineteenth-century bestseller, More gives voice to a wealthy twenty-four-year-old bachelor, who styles himself "Coelebs" (unmarried), but seeks a wife. After the death of his father, Coelebs journeys from the north of England to London, where he encounters a fashionable array of eager mothers and daughters, before he visits the Hampshire home of his mother's friend, Mr. Stanley. Lucilla Stanley, Mr. Stanley's daughter, is both an intellectual and a domestic woman, and Coelebs's ideal partner. In this intelligent and gently satirical novel about the meeting of two minds, More shows the ways in which a couple becomes truly "matched" as opposed to merely "joined."
