Pride and Prejudice

Pride & Prejudice (3/10) Movie CLIP - Elizabeth and Darcy's Dance (2005) HD

Mr. Darcy

A wealthy, but at the same time a formal man, who has hard feelings towards Elizabeth Bennet. Darcy is the example of Pride and he is proud of it. He also feels that he's one of the Upper Echelon people that should be noticed. "So this is your opinion of me? Thank you for explaining so fully. Perhaps these offences might have been overlooked had not your pride been hurt by my honesty"(Austen)


Unfortunately for Mr. Darcy others have a different opinion towards him. Most think that he is full of himself. Many people think that he's snobbish and strives for Center of Attention every where he goes. this is a quote from the book, to better explain, "Barely tolerable, I dare say. But not handsome enough to tempt me. You'd better return to your partner and enjoy her smiles. You're wasting your time with me."(Austen)


In the book "Pride and Prejudice", Mr. Darcys attitude changes due to Elizabeth, who kind of keeps him in check throughout the book. Mr. Darcy then realizes his own cockiness when he is informed by his selfish ways by Elizabeth. "Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you... I had to see you. I have fought against my better judgment, my family's expectations, the inferiority of your birth by rank and circumstance. All these things I am willing to put aside and ask you to end my agony."(Austen)

Elizabeths and Darcys Relationship Analysis

This relationship started when the two meet at a ball when Mr. Darcy asks Elizabeth to dance. There were few obstacles they had to get over to make the relationship work such as, Mr. Darcy getting over his big headedness and Elizabeth to stop judging so much. The couple ended up in marriage happily ever after. In the next 20 years, I think their relationship will still be strong.
