Interpreting Darcy’s Letter

Pride and Prejudice


The passage below is Mr. Darcy’s letter from Pride and Prejudice to Ms. Elizabeth Bennet. Read the letter carefully. Then write a well organized essay in which you analyze the literary techniques Austen uses to convey Darcy’s outrage and to clear his name.

  • Identify the “T.A.G” (Title , Author, Genre)
  • Identify the “Big” and “Little” questions
  • Number the paragraphs (if the lines are not identified already)
  • Initial reading: read the passage slowly, paying close attention to the narrative situation, the perspective, and the complexity of the speaker’s emotion
  • Group reading/second reading: In groups of 4, decide what is happening in each of the paragraphs (annotate) – doing so will help you see how the author manipulates emotions. Note shifts in attitude and tone
