The incredible novel Pride and Prejudice written by Jane Austen
The Bennet family
We are thrown into a conversation between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, a conversation that describes their personality
very well. Mrs. Bennet is a mother to five grown up daughters and all that she wants in life is to get each of them married to a great and rich gentleman. Mr. Bennet however, doesn’t worry that much at all about it, especially not when it comes to Jane and Elizabeth, which is the two brightest and elder daughter of him. Mr. Bennet does often respond his wife’s scandal gossip with a sarcastic answer, tired of her way to behave. She’s always talking about her poor nerves and put herself into a victim’s position, repeatedly asking him to show some consideration to her poor worn out nerves.
The Bennet family is a middle class 18th century family, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet and their five daughters, Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Catherine and Lydia. They lived all together in a town called Hertfordshire in Longbourn the residence of Mr. Bennet. Unfortunately there wasn’t a son in the family who could inherit Longbourn after his father’s death, so Longbourn would be in the hands of the sisters’ cousin Mr. Phillip Collins. And I consider that this is the main reason and the answer to Mrs. Bennet’s poor nerves
The discussion between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet is about a gentleman named Mr. Bingley which settled down in the Netterfield park just a few kilometers from Longbourn, and Mrs. Bennet immediately thought of him married one of the girls. And so it would be at least what we thought, Mr. Bingley fell in love with Jane and everything indicated a wedding. But one day everything changed when suddenly Mr. Bingley took off to London, he was going to business affairs, at least what people said, and he’d never said goodbye to his dear Jane and never return to Netterfield Park.

A different love story build on hatred
Throughout the book, we follow Elizabeth and her coincidence meeting with Mr. Bingley and his very close friend Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy in different places. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy didn’t like each other, at their first meeting Elizabeth had found him very handsome but lately that evening realized that he was an arrogant, self-righteous man.
In some way Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy seem to connect in some odd way, Elisabeth can’t get him of her brain and analyze his way of acting over and over again.
This is the climax in the novel, Elisabeth and Mr. Darcy. Their love grown from hatred, developed into an understanding and respectful mind to each other. A love, from his point of view, wasn’t relevant at all at the first time they met. She wasn’t that beautiful at all to him and certainly not worth to dance with, she wasn’t of any higher rank at all to him, but apparently there was something in her that caught his eye that night.
When we have read about her anger and irritations to him half the book thru everything changes dramatically.
One day without any hunches he decide to propose to her, but Elizabeth couldn’t think of anything else than to dismiss the proposal. But the time after the proposal she started to regret her answer, was she ever going to get a second chance?
I think this novel include everything.
Happiness, the very happy ending, the both sisters’ love stories come truth and they will live a merrily life with their new husbands.
Fear, the unpleasant feeling Elizabeth felt during the time after she dismissed Mr. Darcy, about he could be the only one she’ll ever be happy with. Anxious of her realized it too late.
All Jane could felt when Mr. Bingley took off for London was fear, fear of him leaving her.
Jealously, Jealously Lady Catherine de Bourgh travel from Rosing, her home, to Longbourn just to forbid Elizabeth to get married with Mr. Darcy, her nephew. He wasn’t meant for her she told, he was meant for her own daughter.
Throughout Jane Austen's novels she suggests marriages that are for wealth are more common as those for love. This idea is revealed in the course of her novels by the examples of marriages she provides. One example is Willoughby and Miss Sophia Grey in Sense and Sensibility, married not because of love, but because it was the choice that promised financial security. Edward's sister, Fanny ...
Even Mrs. Bennet is a very jealous woman, talking bad thing about other when she have a bad time and boasting a lot during her good times.
Hatred, there is a lot of that in this novel, hating each other because the one are richer than the other, hating each other because good thing happened to them and not to us. Disappointments of friends which did lied to each others, and which sooner or later became hatred.
I think this is what Jane Austen wants to describe, this was the way of living in the 18th century. The big questions and the big challenge of every little girl were to be married rich, to secure their future and economy.
And you didn’t get married because you love your partner, so when Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy found interested in each other it became a problem for relatives of Mr. Darcy because Elizabeth wasn’t high rank.
All this things that Jane Austen is writing about, is it anything which can compares to 2012?
Or is this time just a memory to us? I think we live the same life as they did way back then with slightly different ideals of what is important today.
We live our life to find the truth love and happiness, but we removed the weight on the reason to the marriage and tried to find a good job to our self instead. It’s still very important to us to find a soul mate but not for the same reason.
The difference in the relationship has change drastically since Jane Austen wrote this novel. We all fight for equality between men and women, and we wouldn’t get married to a guy we didn’t love. I would refuse to be there just to pleasant my man. At least mostly over the world, some in religions girls aren’t free enough to choose by them own.
The jealous is still here and the beauty ideal to, but I guess there is no change for that subject.
Love between different rated people can be compared with love between people with different colors or different religions in today’s society.
A very well chosen name
Jane Austen’s book is written in a third person’s perspective which means we got everything told to us. The main character is Elizabeth and the most important subsidiary character is Mr. Darcy. In the beginning of the book I thought it was Jane but later on I realized that she wasn’t. Everything was about Mr. Bingley and Jane at the first part but when we found out about the growing love between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy the story did change and the main attention fell on them. Of course Jane and Mr. Bingley is very important to the plot to, don’t misjudge me on that one.
Why is good listening important for both the audience and speaker? Provide two real or hypothetical examples of situations in which good listening was not employed and analyze the examples using a listening checklist to illustrate what went wrong. 2.- Describe a speech or presentation where speaker volume was a problem (exclude examples of malfunctioning PA systems). How did this experience affect ...
From my point of view I found it quite hard to keep all the places and persons in mind and not get mixed them up with each other. But the more I read the more I understood. In my opinion the name is a good one to this book, because I can’t figure out any better name that describes the plot that good. I think that the hidden message with this novel is that thru love can prevail everything
Mr. Pride and prejudice meets Miss middle class and fell in love.
