Darcy. Through Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s prejudicial personalities, they experience a change in heart for the other person by realizing their own flaws. Additionally, the different social classes between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy greatly contribute to their relationship; Elizabeth is often discriminated for her association with Mr. Darcy, and as a result, she becomes aware of how much she loves Mr. Darcy due to her defensive reactions to offensive comments. Lastly, Elizabeth’s stubborn attitude to challenge the specific behavior of women during the time only attracts Mr. Darcy to her even more; this factor essentially challenges and changes his own character. Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is an example of a classic love story showing how love can overcome all boundaries between any two people.
Throughout the novel, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen demonstrates to the readers of her novel the many significant portrayals of irony.

As the novel unfolds, the reader is also shown several instances of situational irony. Additionally, the use of dramatic irony is portrayed numerous times throughout the novel. In the romantic novel Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen uses irony as a tool to demonstrate her artistic wit and her characters moral appraisal.
The character of Marianne in the novel represents Austen’s modernistic way of thinking. Marianne refuses to marry for the sake of attaining a position within high society, she has selected the ways in which she presents herself, and with choice must come responsibility. Austen’s novel breaks away from the traditions at the time through the discourses she represents in it. Critic David Kaufmann notes, “Sense and Sensibility bodies forth the discomfort that arises from the break with authority and the past,” (400). Austen constructs the role of a modern author by defying the norms of her time within the narrative of the novel, “Sense and Sensibility confronts us with the as-yet unsolved project of our modernity,” (Kauffmann, 404).
While in other novels, Austen’s heroines’ views marriage as a financial necessity, Emma expresses no interest or desire to marry for the majority of the novel. Her fortune assures her of independence and security. In fact, her chief concern is that marriage will prevent her from maintaining that independence. Emma is remarkable self-possessed and views love only from a detached and almost masculine standpoint. Austen uses the technique of education to illustrate her views on the role of marriage in Emma.
Her novel shows that women can act against the patriarchal system of the society. Austen does not directly react against the woman`s place in the society, no, she instead reflects them as intelligent, charming, significant, lively and active as society members. According to Kaplan, Austen uses Emma to reflect the active response of females to the power of the ideologies of the patriarchal society. Emma is sure of the opinion that she holds and therefore she speaks confidently during conversations. Kaplan says, “To convey awareness of sexual inequality and subtle and overt expression of its unfairness, the heroine speaks with a female voice” (189).
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.
Obviously, the representations of women can be found prominently in these film and TV adaptations. However, concern rises in why a typical view of women is consistently shown in these past eras. In the typical world of an Austen novel, the female protagonists are most preoccupied with marriage and finding the right man. Although this may have been the world of Austen whilst living in Regency England, it cannot be interpreted as the fact and basis of women’s roles entirely in this era. Women during the Regency period would find independence through marriage, but some found it without marrying.
