I choose to do a dramatic interpretation of one the satirical characters in Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Collins. I did a dramatic interpretation of Mr. Collins in today’s society as a teenager. In the novel, Mr. Collins is a pompous clergyman who receives financial support from Lady Catherine De Bourgh. He proposes to Elizabeth, but she refuses his offer, so he proposes to Charlotte Lucas. Mr. Collins is a satirical character because he only cares about how society perceives him and he is used to ridicule men who only care about wealth, power, inheriting land, and inheriting more wealth through marriage.

It indicates the rivalry of Harry and Hotspur, and it helps authorize Henry’s exhausted, troubled condition. Additionally, it lets the readers know that Harry is mainly considered a disappointment, and, by introducing both Harry and Hotspur as potential son figures for Henry, it installs the concept of spitting images in the play. For example, “By being seldom seen, I could not stir/ But like a comet I was wond’red at,/ That men would tell their children, “This is he”;/ Others would say, “Where, Which is Bullingbrook?”/ And then I stole all courtesy from heaven,/ And dress’d myself in such humility/ That I did pluck allegiance from men's hearts,/ Loud shouts and salutations from their mouths”(III.ii.45-53).
