MAJOR THEMES

Social class status: In Pride and Prejudice social status takes an important role.

The lives of the characters depend entirely upon their place in society. The

relationships between the characters are also wholly dependent upon their

social status.

Love: There are several stories of love in the novel, including Jane and Mr. Bingley,

Lydia and Wickham, and Charlotte Lucas’ loveless marriage to Mr. Collins. However

the greatest love story of them all is that of Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy.

Elizabeth and Darcy overcome both their pride and prejudices to finally accept

one another’s hand in marriage.

Reputation: In the world Jane Austen creates, a good reputation is a highly valued

asset. The lives of the characters rise and fall according to the ruined reputation of their

Lydia Bennet. A good reputation is coveted and respected.

PLOT SUMMARY

The novel opens with the news that Netherfield Park is let to Mr. Bingley. The

Bennet household is in an frenzy – especially Mrs. Bennet. She tries to convince

Mr. Bennet, her husband, to visit Mr. Bingley so that their five daughters may

have a chance at meeting him. Her hopes is that the wealthy Mr. Bingley will

marry one of the girls. Mr. Bennet has already visited Mr. Bingley to Mrs. Bennet’s

Satisfaction.

The Bennet sisters attend a ball thrown by Mr. Bingley. There they also meet his

Friend Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy slights Elizabeth in a dance and that turns Elizabeth’s

Heart against him. Jane Bennet and Mr. Bingley fall in love.

When the news of Jane and Mr. Bingley’s romance spreads, his mean sisters break

them apart by sending Mr. Bingley away. Mr. Darcy is falling in love with Elizabeth

but can’t seem to overcome his initial offence at the dance.

By the end of the story, Jane marries Mr. Bingley after he returns. Mr. Darcy and

Elizabeth make amends and marries and all ends happily for everyone (except for

Charlotte Lucas who marries Mr. Collins for money).

Regency Era Fashion

Hemlines for women were very long. No dress was shorter than a few inches above the ankle, and even that was rare.

Men wore breeches, buckled shoes, fitted shirts, and high top hats.
