Pride and Prejudice Projects
By Melody Wade
Character Relationship Analysis
Darcy and Elizabeth are the two main characters in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. They have an interesting relationship. This relationship started at a dance that they both attended. Darcy needed a dance partner. He surveyed the room and found Elizabeth sitting alone without a dance partner. He decided that she was not good enough for him, since his pride prevented him from seeing any other traits of hers. Throughout the book, the relationship suffered many obstacles, such as Mr. Collins proposing to Elizabeth, Wickham becoming a love interest of Elizabeth’s, and Elizabeth rejecting Darcy the first time he proposed. Darcy ended up proposing a second time, and he was to marry Elizabeth. In the next 20 years of their relationship, I think they will have a few children of their own and be the cute little “lovebirds” that I thought they were throughout the course of the book. They will fall in love with each other more every day, since that was basically what happened to them.
“I am the one for you,” said he
As she sat at the table, cringing.
“You are going to be mine. And I
Believe it is so. I have three
Reasons to support my impulsive
Love for you,” he cried.
“You shall make me happy; I am
A clergyman, and it is my duty
To set a great example; and I
Was strongly urged by a patroness
To indulge in your beauty.”
“I do not like you,” she said.
His hopes and dreams were crushed
Then and there.
“Dear lovely lady,” said he
For not the first time.
“I think of you as the utmost
“You help me overcome my hardships
and pride. I help you overcome
Your prejudice,” he continued.
“I can’t bear to think of a day
In this tough existence we call
‘Life’ without you!” she cried.
“Once more, I will ask if you will
Become one with me for
The rest of our days,” he said.“Of course I will,” said she.
