I think it would be more accurate to say that the tone was ironical. Sarcasm implies contempt, and though Jane Austen may have held some people in contempt, the effect was probably intended to be more one of comedy than contempt. Jane Austen enjoyed irony, and used it in everything she wrote. It was...

Elizabeth had just learned that Darcy had separated Jane and Bingley from marrying, and he hadn't denied it. He was also constantly alluding to how rude her family is, which offended her, and of course, Wickham had lied to her that Darcy was an extremely cruel person.
Lady Catherine lives at an estate called Rosings, in Kent. Mr. Collins home, called Hunsford, is very near it.
Six brothers-James (1765-1819), George (1766-1838), Edward (1767-1852), Henry Thomas (1771-1850), Francis William (Frank) (1774-1865), Charles John (1779-1852)-and one sister, Cassandra Elizabeth (1773-1845).
Jane Austen had six brothers and one sister, Cassandra, who was the basis for one of her characters, Jane Bennet, in Pride and Prejudice.
At first, Lizzy is incredulous - she simply cannot believe it is possible that Charlotte would marry Mr. Collins. When the truth sinks in, she becomes disgusted with Charlotte for doing such a thing. Finally, with a little help from Jane, she accepts the idea, though with some continuing regrets.
Wickham told Elizabeth that he was Darcy's father's favorite between the two, and that he was supposed to get a job as a clergyman after he had died. Mr. Darcy supposedly cheated him out of the promise and gave the job to somebody else, and he had to "fend for himself"--which was his fault...

This parka is sensibly constructed.
Mr. Collins marries Charlotte Lucas, Jane and Elizabeth's friend.
He says he observed the two of them together and came to believe that Jane was indifferent to Bingley. Though it is not explicit in the novel, this meant that Bingley's falling in love with her could only bring him the pain of being refused or the pain of marrying a woman who he would later learn...
No, she never married. She was proposed to by suitor Harris Bigg-Wither, who was a very wealthy man. She accepted his proposal at first, but rejected him after thinking about the idea for less than a day. In the film Becoming Jane , she is shown eloping with Tom Lefroy, only to change her mind,...
Not based on any book, but aspects of it are taken from Pride and Prejudice Actually, the film is based on the book of the same name by Helen Fielding, which does contain echoes of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, for example the fact that the hero has the surname Darcy.
The 2001 release of Pride and Prejudice on DVD is the 1995 version by the BBC. It was a TV miniseries consisting of 6 parts, and is 300 minutes long. It is good enough that a lot of people find they want to watch the whole thing in one sitting.
Personally i think the 1995 one is. However, the people in the 2005 one do suit their ages.
She says no "i will not make you happy, and you will not make me happy"
He reads his books in his library and when he is not doing that, he laughs at the ridiculous in the people around him and especially at his wife.
Cassandra Austen died in 1845, at the age of 72.
No, he is a fictional character from Pride and Prejudice created by the author, Jane Austen.
Jane Austen's father was a clergyman. He was the rector of parishes in Steventon, Hampshire. He was a member of the gentry, and from a family of some substance. He added to his rather modest income (for a member of the gentry) by taking on pupils, at one time.
The first ball shows us financial and social status were of the utmost importance in society. The first thing that is mentioned of the newcomers is how much money they make. The people of Meryton are obsessed with money and status. They immediately judge both Darcy and Bingley, a point that Austen...
All of Jane Austen's published novels had weak fathers who were important in their plots. In four of them, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma , and Persuasion , the heroine's own father was weak. In Northanger Abbey, Mr. Tilney is greedy and completely inconsiderate of other peoples'...
Jane Austen wrote in a romanticist, as well as neoclassical style.The ability to layer these two styles was one of her strong points.Her writing exhibited much restraint, was logical and structured.Austen's writing style is a mix of neoclassicism and romanticism.All of her work benefited from her...
Jane Austen seems to have begun writing in about 1787, when she was eleven or twelve years old. She began work on Elinor and Marianne, a novel consisting of a series of letters and which she later reworked into Sense and Sensibility, sometime before 1796, so she was probably in her late teens...
no he has a gf
This is a really interesting question because it focuses so much on the natures of Jane and Lizzie. Lizzie is inclined to believe Wickham entirely. The interesting thing about this is that she does not by nature believe people easily. Her problem is that she has been blinded by her prejudice against...
he is because he is very confident in himself and thinks that elizabeth is ready to fall in love with him, and that a man of his status can help a girl of her status, hes funny in a pathetic way
Mr. Bennet's estate is entailed to a male heir. This means that the girls will not inherit anything from it, unless he has set it aside from his income. He has not done this, which is part of the reason he confesses to having neglected his daughters at one point. Mr. Collins is the male heir who...

His second proposel is around chapter 58 hope this helps!
In Austen's Pride and Prejudice 18th Century England is a place of strict class structure where propriety and the social order are of the utmost importance. She delves into the issues of primogeniture and the lack of options a woman has in life. Because women are largely incapable of making a living...
Darcy is described as having an income of 10,000 pounds per year. This means his income is twice that of Bingley, and five times that of Mr. Bennet, Lizzy's father. To understand what this means, consider: A typical agricultural worker earned about 50 pounds per year. In Sense and Sensibility, the...
I asked this question, and I think not. But I would love to find out what other people think. Jane Austen was very conscious of literary devices, and was aware of the concept of character development. I think she was probably interested in what sort of person should not undergo any development....
Because he's very sure of himself, and thinks he's a great catch for any woman, because: - he's Lady Catherine de Bourgh's protegee - [he thinks] his manners are impeccable and as a religious man he can gain access to all social levels. - he thinks he's more entertaining and interesting and...
Jane Austens works are difficult to date because she rewrote things often and was not particular about recording the dates of her writing. We know she wrote a number of books as a teenager, perhaps starting at the age of eleven, but we do not really know the order in which they were produced. Also,...
There are many sequels to Pride and Prejudice , but none written by the original author, Jane Austen. Examples include Mr. Darcy's Daughters, and Exploits and Adventures of Miss Alethea Darcy by Elizabeth Aston; Pemberley: Or Pride and Prejudice Continued and An Unequal Marriage: Or Pride...
This is not really explicitly stated in the novel. There are some hints, however. If you look at the people in the novel with whom Darcy has any interaction, many of them either are women who want to capture him for themselves or people who want to capture him for some near relative. Miss Bingley is...
Lady Catherine De Bourgh is Darcy's mother's sister. She is a very wealthy woman who lives at an estate called Rosings in Kent. She is the patroness of Mr. Collins, and the mother of Anne De Bourgh. She wants to see her daughter marry Darcy. She is controlling, self centered, opinionated,...
Jane Austen was influenced by a number of other literary figures of her time, and by the society in which she lived. Her writing sometimes reflected the earlier writers, sometimes reacted to them, and sometimes was rather mocking of them, though without rancor. Some of these influences can be...
That Mr Darcy prevented Mr Bingley from proposing to Jane, and that he was very proud of having done so.
The significance of the novel was to show that we shouldn't be too conceited in pride and prejudice. In the novel, Elizabeth is prejudice and Mr. Darcy is full of pride. Also, Jane Austen ridicules society in her novel.
That Mr Bennet would be killed in a fight with Mr Wickham
Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility was her first novel to be published. When it appeared in 1811, it was immediately successful with people who were well read, and she became known as a result. Her fame was increased with Pride and Prejudice , which appeared in 1813. These novels were, at the...
Elizabeth's first impression of Mr. Darcy was that he was proud, and arrogant, which made him unattractive to her. Shortly before he proposed, she also found he had been responsible for Bingley being separated from her sister, Jane, so she was very angry at him also. When he proposed, the proposal...
Neither Col. Fitzwilliam nor Elizabeth has any appreciable amount of money. As a younger son of an earl, he should be able to marry a woman with a considerable fortune, which he really needs to do because of his own lack of one. He could marry Elizabeth, if they really fell in love, but he would...
Lizzy's Bennet's ideal vision of marriage is one where, in addition to being in love with ones spouse, there is a mutual respect for each other, and a meeting of minds.
Cassandra Elizabeth Austen was Jane Austen's only sister. Cassandra was two years older than Jane. They were very close to each other, and neither ever married.
Mrs. Bennet has two siblings. One is Mrs. Philips, the wife of an attorney, who lives in Merriton (her husband never appears in the book). The other is Mr. Gardiner, who is a wealth tradesman, living in the Cheapside district of London. He is married to Mrs. Gardiner, who grew up in Lambton, near...
Pride and Prejudice is a novel. Specifically, it is a romance novel, and it is, in fact, often considered the epitome of the romance novel.
Miss. Bingley never plays the piano in the film. Miss. Darcy, Miss Mary Bennet and Miss Elizabeth Bennet do however.
There are several places in the book where this is explained to some extent. Darcy is reticent with strangers. He does not feel confident to interact with them, especially dancing, but also in conversation. He is quite capable of interacting with his friends, as Col. Fitzwilliam notes. In addition...
Two of Jane Austen's novels were first published in 1818, after she died. These were Northanger Abbey and Persuasion . It is possible that one or more of her novels that were published during her lifetime had an edition appear the same year.
From the very beginning, Darcy proves himself to be conceited and rude. He takes his social status very seriously and seems to look down on those who are less wealthy than him. As the book continues, Elizabeth (with whom the reader is meant to identify with most) dislikes Darcy more and more. He...
Mr. Darcy is a gentleman. He has no occupation. He is wealthy because he owns a great estate, described as being ten miles around, which would mean possibly 3000 or 4000 acres. On this estate are farms and villages, which he owns, and the tenants pay rent or provide products of their labor in lieu...
Interesting question. We are led to believe that Bingley's sisters are accomplished. And certainly all ladies are said to be accomplished to some extent, according to Bingley. The thing that makes this interesting is that Mary Bennet, who is so often regarded as a sort of failure, seems to have been...
Her most popular book is Pride and Prejudice, but Emma is the one that is considered a masterpiece by many people, and it i also my favorite book by her.
The answer to this one will depend entirely on who you ask. I know people who consider Emma the best, and they include some very knowledgeable on literature. I know people who consider Sense and Sensibility the best. I personally enjoy Pride and Prejudice most, and I know people who think it...
Emma Woodhouse's governess is the one who cared for her. Her name was Miss Taylor, but after she is married, her name is changed to Mrs. Weston.
Yes, at the end of the novel by Jane Austen she marries Mr Knightley.
No. They had similarities, but the contrasts between them were more remarkable. Mr Darcy was proud and ill at ease with strangers (shy?). He was certainly presumptuous at some times, and it is possible he was self-centered, though we do not know that. He was hardly a buffoon. By contrast, Mr Collins...
Answer No awards whatsoever! What awards did you expect for a woman living at the turn of the 19th century??! That was a time when it was not really "proper" for women to write novels, so many women writers used pen-names. By "accomplishments" her contemporaries understood something quite...
The Bennett sisters in age order (oldest first) are: . Jane . Elizabeth . Mary . Kitty . Lydia
They were childhood friends, but Darcy began to disapprove of Wickham's behaviour. After Wickham tried to run away with his 15 year old sister, Darcy hated him.
There were three places in Pride and Prejudice where Elizabeth was proposed to. One was at Longbourne, the home of the Bennets. This was Mr. Collins proposal, which she refused. The second proposal was at Hunsford, the Collins home in Kent. This time Darcy proposed and she refused. The third...
Jane Austen wrote during the Romantic period.
First, it is noted that Darcy only danced with two young ladies, the sisters of his friend, Bingley. He declined to be introduced to any other girls. He is characterized as being proud and dismissive of those around him. He offends Elizabeth during a conversation he has with Bingley. Elizabeth,...
Jane Austen began writing a novel she called First Impressions in 1796. She later changed the name and edited it into Pride and Prejudice , finishing in 1811 or 1812. It was first published in 1813.
Jane Austen's first full length novel was Elinor and Marianne , written when she was twenty or twenty-one. This novel, of course, was later edited and was published as Sense and Sensibility . She wrote a story sometimes referred to as a novel, called Love and Freindship [sic], starting when she...
Unfortunately, NOBODY... She was, nevertheless, engaged, but only for several hours. She had accepted a proposal of marriage earlier in the evening (simply because it was convenient), but the absence of love made her break off the engagement the following morning.
Jane Austen was born on the 16th of December 1775 in Steventon, Hampshire..
Pride and Prejudice has 61 chapters. They average about 5 pages each. The original novel was broken into three "volumes," a term with a somewhat different meaning then than it has now. Perhaps today they would be called Part 1, 2, or 3, instead of Volume 1, 2, or 3. Since some editions follow that...
Jane Austen died on July 18, 1817 at the age of 41. Four of her books, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Emma , had been published by that time. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published posthumously.
There seems to be no easy answer to this. Mr. Hurst is said to look like a gentleman, but we really do not know much about his background, and so we have no explicit answer. It really depends on what is meant by the term. By early definitions of the term, a gentleman was a member of the nobility,...
Elizabeth expected to find Georgiana Darcy exceedingly proud. Instead she found her only exceedingly shy.
First of all, Lizzy was very distressed and in an emotional state - she could not conceal her feelings. But especially, it made best sense for her to be open with Darcy at this point because the problem that she was dealing with was one he would understand, having been prevented from falling into it...
Mrs Bennet is afraid Mr Bennet will die before any of her daughters is married. The problem is that Mr Bennet's estate is entailed, which is to say it must pass to a male heir. Since there is no son in the Bennet family, the estate is to be inherited by Mr Collins, a cousin. A woman in such a...
Jane Austen wrote six widely published novels. These are: Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. She also wrote some other material, books she wrote as a child, poems, an unfinished novel, and so on, which have been published...
the death of her father and her disease
Most of Pride and Prejudice takes place in a small town in Hertfordshire. The town of Meryton, and Longbourne, which is a mile away, are probably not more than twenty miles from London. There are several people in the book who go to London, but we see their actions there mostly through reports of...
It is a wonderful story comparing two young women motivated differently. Elinor is responsible and rational. Marianne is unconventional and romantic. I find it dwells more on the unhappiness the girls go through than I would like. By comparison, Pride and Prejudice positively sparkles, even when...
Certainly the one most directly affected is the relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy. But, because of Lizzy's prejudice, she is willing to accept Wickham's stories about being mistreated by Darcy uncritically. This is very uncharacteristic of her and is contrasted by Jane's scepticism,...
Jane Austen died at 4:30 am on July 18, 1817 at the age of 41. Although the actual cause of death is unknown, it is possible that she died from Addisons Disease. ----- Most likely Addison's disease or Hodgkin's Lymphoma no one really knows for sure ----- Jane Austen's health began to...

Answer . "[Jane] lies buried in the north aisle of the nave in Winchester Cathedral in Winchester, England."
A person's home is important, and for most of Jane Austen's characters, home was a small estate at or near a country village. Villages were important, as were the cities of London and Bath. She did not say much about London. She had at least one character of intelligence, Anne Elliot, dislike Bath,...
The main romantic relationship that occurs in Pride and Prejudice is that between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. The majority of the novel focuses on their developing relationship. Other characters that fall in love are Jane Bennett (Elizabeth's older sister) and Mr. Bingley (Mr. Darcy's friend)....
