Pride and Prejudice

By Cory Tacosik

Clown

I chose this picture because the Bennet family embarrassed them selves and acted like "clowns." Mrs. Bennet was very public with her feelings about Mr. Bingley and Jane.


"Mrs. Bennet was most pressingly civil in her hope of seeing the whole family soon at Longbourn, and addressed herself especially to Mr. Bingley, to assure him how happy he would make them by eating a family dinner with them at any time, without the ceremony of a formal invitation." pg. 78

Marriage

I think that marriage is a big part of these chapters because everyone is talking about marriage and Mr. Collins even proposes to Elizabeth.


"I singled you out as the companion of my future life." pg. 79-80

Betrayal

I think that betrayal is a theme in these chapters because Jane thought that Mr. Bingley loved her and was going to end up marrying her but then he turned the other way and is going to marry someone else. Even though Elizabeth thinks it was not his idea for sending the letter, I think that Mr. Bingley still is rude to do that.



"It was not to be supposed that their
absence from Netherfield would prevent Mr. Bingley's being there; and as to the loss of their society, she was persuaded that Jane must cease to regard it, in the enjoyment of his."

The Balls

I think that the parties that are held through out the book play a huge roll in how people met each other back then. The balls were big social gatherings. Elizabeth was looking for Mr. Wickham at the ball because everyone goes to them.



"Till Elizabeth entered the drawing-room at Netherfield, and looked in
vain for Mr. Wickham among the cluster of red coats there assembled, a doubt of his being present had never occurred to her." pg. 67
