Pride and Prejudice is a simple love story set in a complex period of time published in 1813 by Jane Austen. Joe Wright creates and adapts this novel into his 2005 Pride and Prejudice film. Cultural environment leads to drastic and thematic changes from the original novel to what is the 2005 film. An altered change is the overall sexual tone of the movie compared to what was written in a period of time where it would have been unacceptable to publish anything that resembled the movie. I will explore this change of tone by assessing Joe Wright’s translation of Pride and Prejudice and comparing it to the culture of the 19th century.
Pride and Prejudice also deviates from social conventions at that time because Austen writes Pride and Prejudice as a social satire and makes humor of the traditional roles of women. Compared to other novels with female characters at the time, such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Jane Austen’s female characters in Pride and Prejudice break the social norm for women and do not portray them as passive. Pride and Prejudice, published in 1813, is about five sisters whose mother is desperate to see them married off. The book deals with themes that include love, reputation, and class. However, Pride and Prejudice received much criticism for being a novel full of female characters that fit the social norms for women in the 19th century.
As a result, the position of the daughter within the family changes as they become the means through which Bennet family and especially other sisters could attain greater prosperity if one of them gets married with wealthier man. None of the Bennet girls will receive any of their father’s property. Unless they marry well, they will be left penniless. It was exasperating to know that Mr. Bennet’s cousin,a man the family had never met, would inherit all their property which proves that 19th century women were incomparable even to a man whom they never
Jane Austen’s “Pride and prejudice” is a romantic novel that was considered between relationships and love between individuals. The novel pointed out why marriage is important to the majority of women during the 19th century. Austen revealed to the readers that love in marriage does exist during that time period. For instance, Charlotte Lucas marries an arrogant man for security due to the pressures of society placed on women in Austen’s era. George Wickham, known in the entire novel as a dishonorable man, married Lydia to ensure financial profit to him -self and Lydia agreeing to marry him knowing his background, but still decides to marry him.
During Jane Austen’s work on “Pride and Prejudice,” Romanticism started to reach its complex, and had strong influence on people’s life, but Austen chose to reject the tenets of that movement. Romanticism emphasized on the power of feeling, but Austen supported rationalism instead. She substantiated traditional principles and the established rules; her novels also display an ambiguity about emotion and an appreciation for intelligence and natural beauty that aligns them with Romanticism. Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is one of her most well-known works and even though the text is hard to understand, I would recommend it for high students because to me, it is the most characteristic and the most eminently quintessential work of Jane Austen. The title, “Pride and Prejudice,” is the most attractive object to me, as explained in the book - “Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously.
