That is very true, replied Elizabeth, and I could easily forgive his pride, if he has not mortified mine. (15)
We were told early in the book that Elizabeth strongly dislikes Darcy but this quote reminded me of how humans interact with each other, of bar conversations when a man gets rejected when he approaches a female, as soon as the female says no to the man he tries to convince himself that he never liked her anyway with remarks like “well I thought you where fat”, or “well your ugly anyways”. So Elizabeth in the book was ok with mr.darcy pride but after he so disrespectfully put her pride down, she can no longer deal with the pride that Darcy towards himself. But unlike men in bars Miss Elizabeth can’t drink the problem away.
Oh yes!—of that kind of love which I suppose him to have felt. Poor Jane! I am sorry for her, because, with her disposition, she may not get over it immediately. (122)
I always thought Mr.Bingly sister was a very bad person who wanted to watch people get hurt for her own amusement, but when Mr.Bungley decides that his love for Jane is no more, I felt punished for even trusting him. Like the Family genes are cursed with the powers of hate. Mr.Bingley should of known that this was Jane’s whole life, their a poor family (but have servants for some reason) and that the only way for the attire of Jane life to change is with marriage to him. Made me feel like the sins on Mr.Bingleys Sister has rubbed onto him and that he can no longer be in the story without the taste of bitterness in my mouth.
OH! My dear, cried his wife. I cannot bear to hear that mentioned. Pray do not talk of that odious man. I do think it is the hardest thing in the world that your estate should be entailed away from your own children. (52)
I loved the writing style here, it truly made Mr. Collins look the slime bag he him. A spotlight of evil has now been casted down on him. Like he has nothing more to do than make the family looks up at him. “odious man” is a great title very descriptive while still putting the insult. I also love the use of ! I don’t use them that often in my writing because well I never think anything I say is worthy enough the has the excitement of the ! to be put upon it. But I loved the use here you could see it being said in real life, but not like now real life the time period of which this book was written.
