Her husband attempted to comfort and convince her to take the crown with “prayers and caresses.” Despite her family’s namesake and image at stake, Grey believed that her personal incapability should prevent her from seizing power. Rather than rashly seize power, she knew the correct hierarchy of the power and the consequences of her power and her reaction showcases her devastation. Her dignity did not derive from upholding the political ambitions of her family but rather a quiet personal dignity in knowing her limits and goals. In a letter to Queen Mary following Grey’s imprisonment in a tower following the queen’s coup, she recounts her displeasure in her her nine days of reign.
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.

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.

Boyer. While Boyer was indeed considered a virtuous clergyman who only tried to persuade Eliza into an honorable bond of matrimony he is actually the very cause for Eliza’s fate. For it was Boyer’s lack of attention to her desire to not settle down (and pressure he put on her to know her answer) that made Sanford a more pleasing candidate in her eyes, as was seen in Eliza’s response to her mother reminding her of her engagement to Boyer “If I am to become a recluse [referring to how she feels about being married], let me, at least, enjoy those amusements, which are suited to my taste, a short time first.

Though Regan and Goneril replied to a dramatic degree of which they love their father, Lear interrogated her by exclaiming, “What can you say to draw a third more opulent than your sisters? Speak” (Lear 1.1.87-88). Filled with power, Lear spoke to his daughters in an arrogant tone as he hinted that his inheritance is related to how much love they profess towards him.
