Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Jane Austen wrote Pride and prejudice. Jane Austin was born on the 16
of December in 1775 at Steven ton Recovery.
I think in this story Jane Austin tries to show how people judging
others on first impression can go misleading people into the wrong
judgement of each other.
Life was very different for people back those days. People were most
concerned about wealth and family class. Ladies especially were
suffering because a ladies did not go to work therefore she couldn't
go on earning her own money, so marring a rich man was her way of
solving her financial gain. If a women was not very pretty than she
was not expected to find a very rich man.
The Bennets family consist of a family of five daughters and mother
and father. A women could not inherit her fathers wealth so its
problem for the Bennets because without a son in the family there
would be nobody else to be able to carry on the family wealth. The
only alternative for them is that it all goes to the nearest male
relative, Mr Bennets nepew Mr collins.
Elizabeth takes special interest into Mr Darcy however the feeling is
not mutual as Mr Darcy describes her not tolerable or handsome enough
for him. Elizabeth's hatred for Mr Darcy grows when she hears of his
dealings with Mr Wickham and than she later learns it was because of
Mr Darcy that her sister Jane and Mr Bingly were separated. After all
these events Mr Darcy is in fact in love Elizabeth and proposes to
her, Elizabeth astonished insults him and says she can't forget how
awful he was her sister and how ill mannered he is.
In chapter 33, Elizabeth while working with Mr Darcy's cousin connel
Fitzwilliam learns that Mr Darcy was the cause of her sister Jane and
Mr Bingly breaking apart.
Connel Fitzwilliam slips out that Mr Darcy had lately "congratulated
himself on lately having saved a friend from the inconvenience of a
most imprudent marriage", not aware that she is the sister of the
women who Mr Darcy had prevented his friend from marring. Connel
Fitzwilliam than explains that Mr Darcy had felt that the ladies
family was not suitable. Mr Darcy prejudice against the Bennets is
clearly showing by the way he has dealt with this situation. Mr Darcy
had felt Jane was not good enough for Mr Bingly because she did not
match up to his standards. These standards were Jane 's family
fortune, because the Bennt's are rich and Mr Darcy therefore, believes
that it is not right to marry any one who is a social class lower than
you. This shows that Mr Darcy has clear objections to the Bennets
because they are not wealthy and that his prejudice of differences of
social class had made him interfere with Mr Bingly 's wish in marring
Mr Darcy other reason's were the Bennet's family, they have obsessive
mother who no...
