Sites about Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

“First published in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has consistently been Jane Austen’s most popular novel. It portrays life in the genteel rural society of the day, and tells of the initial misunderstandings and later mutual enlightenment between Elizabeth Bennet (whose liveliness and quick wit have often attracted readers) and the haughty Darcy. The title Pride and Prejudice refers (among other things) to the ways in which Elizabeth and Darcy first view each other. “

Characters: Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Jane Bennet, Mr. Collins
Keywords: satire, 18th century England

Critical sites about Pride and Prejudice

Narrative Credibility in Rhetoric and Literature: The Case of Jane Austen
“Methods for proving ‘narrative truth’ (presented throughout Classical, English Renaissance, and Eighteenth Century rhetoric) can be applied to the case of ‘Wickham vs. Darcy’ from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. A proposed concept, the ‘narrative enthymeme,’ helps us to see that Elizabeth Bennet (the ‘judge’ in this case) should and in a sense must accept Darcy’s narrative version. A narrative enthymeme is defined as the implied moral principle that motivates an action taken in a forensic narrative. When this principle matches one already held by the judge, the narrative argument gains strength. The narrative enthymemes in Darcy’s letter to Elizabeth create an overpowering forensic argument. “
