Example text

All the local gentry were there, and every word that was spoken, every move that was made, were noted and will be commented on. Mrs. Bennet energetically voices her dislike of Darcy. Charlotte Lucas suggests that with family, fortune—everything—in his favor, Darcy has a right to be proud. Elizabeth replies laughingly that she could forgive his pride if he had not offended hers. NOTE: This scene gives us our first indication of how different Charlotte and Elizabeth are. Charlotte is sensible and realistic, willing to accept things and people as they are.

She also keeps her three subplots alive with a novelist’s juggling skill. In the end, all three subplots contribute to the resolution of the principal plot, and the hero and heroine come together in happiness at last. ” This opening line of Pride and Prejudice has become one of the most famous sentences in English literature. With this single short statement, Jane Austen does three things: 1. She declares one of her major themes: Money and Marriage. 2. She establishes an ironic, humorous tone by using very intellectual-sounding words to introduce a subject that is not intellectual at all—the search for someone to marry.

NOTE: The mood now becomes one of anxiety. Elizabeth tries to raise Jane’s spirits with the argument that Miss Bingley is only expressing her own wishes, not her brother’s. But privately she fears that Miss Bingley may win out and that Jane’s hope of happiness will be dashed. CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO Mr. Collins sneaks out to Lucas Lodge and quickly accomplishes his mission. Charlotte is watching for him. As she expects, he makes his proposal of marriage to her. She promptly accepts and instructs him to say nothing to the Bennets of their engagement.
