At Meryton Ball

Chapter III of Volume I, P7, Line 5.>>

Darcy declined being introduced to any other lady, and spent the rest of the evening in walking about the room, speaking occasionally to one of his own party. He was the proudest, most disagreeable man in the world, and everybody hoped that he would never come there again.

At Sir William Lucas’s

Before this ball, he had found the beauty of Eliza(Chapter VI of Volume I, P16). At this ball, he started to change his attitude towards Eliza by humbling himself to be close to her(page 17).

The Proposal

Chapter XI of Volume II>>

• He expressed his love for her had overcome his sense that a marriage to her would be a degrading because of her inferior family(p145).

• He spoke of apprehension and anxiety, but his countenance expressed real security(p145).

•“I have no wish of denying that I did every thing in my power to separate my friend from your sister, or that I rejoice in my success.”(p147)–proud~

•“Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your connections? To congratulate myself on the hope of relations, whose condition in life is so decidedly beneath my own?”(p148)

Long Letter

Chapter XII of Volume II>>

Darcy was frank to Elizabeth.

•He admitted his faults

1. Early in Chapter XI of Volume I, p43, at Netherfield when Jane’s sick.

2. In the letter(p151): If you have not been mistaken here, I must have been in an error.

•He trusted her and also was frank to her

1. I must now mention a circumstance which I would wish to forget myself, and which no obligation less than the present should induce me to unfold to any human being(p154)…about the elopement of his sister.

>> That Darcy’s family was not that perfect either.

Encounter at Pemberley

Chapter I of Volume III>>

•He advanced towards the party, and spoke to Elizabeth of perfect civility.(p190)

• He even enquired after her family(p191), and asked her if she would do him the honour of introducing him to her friends.(p193)

• He had conversation with Mr. Gardiner and invited him, with great civility, to fish here…(p193)

•“Will you allow me, or do I ask too much, to introduce my sister to your acquaintance during your stay at Lambton?”(p194)

•Whenever she did catch a glimpse, she saw an expression of general complaisance.

Elizabeth & Darcy: Progress Development (Review)
  • Volume 1
  • Relation: estranged.

Darcy has affection of Eliza, but she has no idea.


Darcy—aware of the difference of class, background and family.

Elizabeth—the snub and attitude of Darcy forms prejudice. Being defensive and kind of impolite.

evaluation hurt each other.

Eliza revealed her weakness and trusted Darcy.

Also, Eliza is aware that she indeed loves Darcy and the scandal could be the obstacle between them.

(Eliza: ”and never had she so honestly felt that she could have loved him, as now, when all love must be vain.”

Mrs. Gardiner:“And are they upon such terms as for her to disclose the real truth! Oh, that I knew how it was!‘”)
