  • Essay On Feminism In Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice

    Is it a cliché to say that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is my favorite fiction novel of all time?

Jane Bennet, the eldest daughter, becomes ill at Mr. Bingley’s home. Mr. Bingley is the man she is interested in. Because of this, Jane must stay in home for a couple of days. To make Jane more comfortable, Elizabeth decides to stay with her. While Jane is resting in her bedroom, everyone else is in a room trying to occupy themselves. In the household is Mr. Bingley and his two sisters, one of his sister’s husband, Mr. Darcy, and Elizabeth. A conversation is struck up about Elizabeth’s reading habits. She would rather read her book, than to play cards with the others. The conversation then goes on to talk about what consist of an accomplished woman. Things such as playing the piano, dancing, singing, drawing, and speaking numerous languages (Austen 80). Austen also paints a clear picture of how men and…
