How would it feel to forego all sense of conformity within a society to have relationship with a loved one? Has it ever come to mind that one could project their feelings towards another as disgust, only later to reveal them as love? In Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice, she portrays Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy to experience this exact struggle; Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy both find a way to challenge specific reputations they are expected to uphold among their social classes, so they can ultimately be with each other. Throughout the novel Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen draws a connection among the frequent aspects of prejudice, social order, and reputation to enhance the progressive love between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Due to both Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy’s prejudicial personalities, the two are eventually able to notice the intense love they had for each other.
In the book Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy have a rather odd relationship. There are multiple times during the novel that they show signs of their love for each other but it is somewhat hidden. Elizabeth also goes through many challenges such as Lady Catherine de Bourgh, family issues, and trust of Mr. Darcy. Even when their love seemed destroyed, they found their way back to each other. Throughout the book we notice the delayed relationship between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy when Lady Catherine de Bourgh comes and tries to ruin the relationship, when Elizabeth finds out that Mr. Darcy was the cause of the split between Mr. Bingley and Jane Bennet, and when Elizabeth walks into Mr. Darcy’s house and Mr. Darcy’s sister is playing the piano.
Darcy constructs a barrier between the two, which results in feelings of absolute temptation and anger. Thus, they can see each other’s love much easier than earlier in the novel. Elizabeth is portrayed as coming from a family that is inferior in rank; they inherit this stereotype through aspects of wealth, property, and marriage. On the other hand, Mr. Darcy has a social ranking of complete superiority within the society; he comes from a family that has the highest of standards among those three similar aspects of the Bennet family. In Pride and Prejudice, Austen creates a society that discriminates Elizabeth with her decision to marry Mr. Darcy.
In the novel, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, the author describes a humorous story of love revolving the Bennet family. Mr.Bennet and his wife live in Hartfordshire with their five daughters; “the beautiful Jane, the clever Elizabeth, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and the wild Lydia.” The catalyst of the plot is that the Bennets did not birth a son which at that time meant that Georgian laws favored men. Unfortunately, this means Mr.Bennet’s wealth cannot be inherited by any of his five daughters, so the daughters are constantly pressured by their parents to marry. Jane first develops an interesting relationship with the wealthy and lovable Mr.Bingley, while Elizabeth is introduced to the handsome and upper-class Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth
Darcy takes pride in his social rank and that makes him look down on people with lower class, “Initially prideful, Darcy doesn 't think these country people are good enough for him. Elizabeth has pride, too: though looks aren 't everything to her, Darcy 's insult still stings.” (Austen, 1813, Ch. 3). Prejudice is also a major theme in the novel, as the title implies that prejudice goes hand in hand with pride, guiding the protagonists into making wrong assumptions. Mr. Darcy’s prejudice against the lower class stops him from accepting and admitting his true feelings for Elizabeth, while Elizabeth owns prejudices against the upper class for their behaviour towards them, “His character was decided.
It’s also her pitiful part because she doesn’t receive an education. Therefore, she thinks that marries someone is rich and has high social status is the only way to make a living. She is also fond of gossiping and always uses exaggerated facial expressions to show her reaction. Compare to Mrs. Bennet, Mr. Bennet has totally different personality from her. Mr. Bennet is witty and intellectual that he is quite calm when things happened.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a wife.” Reading this quote any literary enthusiast can guess who the author is, as this has been one of the most talked about quotations in English literature. This is the first line of Pride and Prejudice, the single line that encompasses the theme of the entire novel. And who can be more efficient in bringing out all the pages of a huge novel into one single line than the most successful 19th century Romantic fiction author- Jane Austen. She is placed among the greatest authors in the world of literature. She wrote six novels in all- Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion,

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was one of the greatest English novelists in a century distinguished by great novelists. In six works characterized by keen perception, comic genius, and an unequalled prose style, Austen depicts both the nobility and the folly of human beings, especially as they fall in and out of love, in upper-class British society at the turn of the nineteenth century. Pride and Prejudice, first published in 1813, is Austen’s most popular work. A sparkling comedy of manners and morals, the novel describes the collision between two superbly crafted characters: the aristocratic, prideful, but honourable FitzwilliamDarcy, and the intelligent, witty, vital Elizabeth Bennet, whose initial prejudice against Darcy gives way to respect, love, and, as is typical of Austen’s novels, a happy marriage at the end. It is a remarkably happy novel that we continue to enjoy in part because Austen’s characters fulfill fairy-tale expectations; admirable, smart, and engaging characters are rewarded, and stupid, trite, and rude characters are ridiculed and banished.
Elizabeth’s quick judgment of Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham causes her and her family pain, Mr. Wickham’s villainous actions and their effects on Elizabeth Bennet reveal how faulty first impressions can be, and how she could have prevented some heartache if she had been less judgmental. Pride and Prejudice depicts the story of Elizabeth Bennet and her family of four sisters and parents in 19th century rural England. Set during the Napoleonic wars the novel is primarily told from Elizabeth’s point of view. The plot follows mainly Elizabeth and her sister Jane in their journey to find true happiness.
