The Reverberation of Mary Wollstonecraft in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) has often been regarded as one of the most influential and important articulations in the history of feminist theory. Wollstonecraft, addressing such issues as education, politics and marriage and debunking the myths of female frailties, vehemently argues for the rights of women and the equality of the sexes. In particular, Wollstonecraft’s views on marriage are continuously echoed throughout Jane Austen’s beloved novel, Pride and Prejudice (1812). Wollstonecraft’s notion that marriage should be based on friendship and respect rather than economic security or physical attraction is an ideal epitomized by the nuptials between Pride and Prejudice’s two leading characters, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.

Likewise, Miss Caroline Bingley, while certainly not guilty of crimes as grievous or horrific as Raskolnikov’s, betrays a similar sentiment of heartlessness in her treatment of the Bennet sisters throughout the plot of Pride and Prejudice. However, the nature of each character’s cruel actions remain remarkably different. Raskolnikov seeks to transcend the ethical conventions binding society and act as a conscience-free moral agent, whereas Caroline Bingley’s behavior is very much a product of institutionalized classism, and she acts wholly within the parameters which Victorian England’s strict
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Context According to Library of Philadelphia "mash-up novels combine literary classics (or historical figures) with anything". The “anything” in this case are zombies.

In Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin often portrays that some facts are perceived as the truth but are actually lies. Austin consistently illustrates that certain details are falsely presumed to be the truth. She shows the reader the characters’ understanding of the story but then later reveals the actual truth. Additionally, she also indicates that this misperception of the truth is often caused by the reliance of one on emotions and feelings to obtain the truth rather than reason and rationality. Throughout the story, the reader can conclude that Austin’s reasoning behind the characters constant misunderstanding of the truth is that when choosing what to believe as the truth, one instinctively involves emotions and sentiments which would be
