Edith Wharton stated once that at some stage in a story there will be that turning point or “illuminating incident” that would be a window that opens to convey the whole message and show the deeper meaning of the work.

After knowing the truth, Elizabeth’s reaction help build up the main themes of Pride and Prejudice which is to learn before making any judgments.
It is common knowledge that first impressions often last even after an individual has been acquainted with said person for a long period of time (Austin 2015). Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice, portrays a reoccurring sense of preconceived perceptions of various characters throughout the story, resulting in many misunderstandings among relationships between them.

Due to historical factors, Austen’s point of view in her works was ‘biased’, that is to say, she had her own opinion on different matters, and as it is known, she was a proud feminist who expressed her beliefs when she wrote. The Regency Period was a time of social instability in England: from the ‘madness’ of King George III, to the passivity and excessive life of his son, who was to be King George IV. Obviously, the judicial power did not favour every single person
Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good. (Josephine, 2003) In spite of her mistake in misjudging Wickham and Darcy, and her more blamable fault of sticking stubbornly to that judgment until forced to see her error, Elizabeth is usually right about people.
