Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice
Examines the novel’s relationship to Romantic movement’s concerns with love, marriage, happiness, lack of politics and irony.
Elizabeth Bingley is the protagonist character of Pride and Prejudice. She is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet. Elizabeth, while not the prettiest of the five, is respected as the most intelligent and sensible, however throughout the novel it becomes apparent that she is too clever for her own good. She is an independent woman, with a bold personality, which is quite opposite the traditional 19th century view of how women should behave. Far from proper and pious, Austen has created a feminist character that the reader will grow to love, regardless of her behavior s and judgmental attitudes. This is in opposition to the perfect woman, who marries into wealth, reproduces, and is seen and not heard.
