After knowing the truth, Elizabeth’s reaction help build up the main themes of Pride and Prejudice which is to learn before making any judgments.

The current behaviors of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy contrast to their usual behavior portrayed in the novel leading up to this passage, especially Mr. Darcy’s. The anger Elizabeth expresses in this passage is a kind of anger that she has never expressed in the novel before, which shows how Mr. Darcy’s marriage proposal has affected her. What he said to her as his ‘marriage proposal’, which was more like a speech full of insults towards Elizabeth, seemed to push Elizabeth past her breaking point and caused her to lose control and let all her rage towards Mr. Darcy out. This anger
The novel Pride and Prejudice can easily be picked apart through a feminist lens. The farther into the book one goes, the more there is to critique and analyze through a feminist lens. The book is about Elizabeth Bennet and her relationship with her eventual fiance Mr. Darcy, the ups and the downs of their relationship. Elizabeth was never a woman who only craved the attention and approval of men, she was her own person with her own complex emotions.

In Act 3 Scene 1, Beatrice is overwhelmed with the thought of people judging her proud and scornful ways. Beatrice addresses this revolution by agreeing to leave her past self behind and seal this newfound affection with Benedick. Beatrice’s view of rejecting a man who will rule her with an iron fist is quite independent. In this case, Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing suggests Beatrice was once in love with Benedick, but his title of lord and soldier of Padua negatively effected their relationship. In addition, Beatrice’s previous relationship with Benedick, as suggested by the play, developed this harsh semblance.
We see this from the way he tends to favor Bianca over Kate, such as when he leaves Katherine behind because “he has more to commune with Bianca” (1.1.102-103). Reflect upon the way this preferential treatment would affect Katherine’s relationship with her sister. In what ways would this be expressed onstage? Later, when Baptista comes across Katherine assaulting the favored daughter, his diction further depicts his favoritism: “Poor girl” of Bianca, “devilish spirit” of Kate, “Why dost thou wrong her that did ne’er wrong thee?” (2.1.25-30).
