Pride and Prejudice question 27
My question today springs directly from what you have said. Feel free to object strongly to the question.
Pride and Prejudice question 26
What is Jane Austen's concept of marriage? She describes in some detail the economic status of each of the eligible gentlemen, while she says very little about their physical attributes. Is that an indication of her own view or society's? Would Pride and Prejudice work as well if Darcy were poor? Does the practical streak she brings to love go so far as to have a woman reject a suitor if he couldn't support her?
