Well, it could be said that both Darcy and Elizabeth are proud and prejudiced in the novel. However, the main pride is Elizabeth's. When Darcy first insults her at the ball, she is hurt and then bases her opinion of him on that incident. Her refusal was due mostly to her hurt pride from Darcy's insults. Darcy's pride is plainly observed, which may be why his pride is seldom discussed, because Miss Austen wrote of it so blatantly. He acknowledges that fault and it is dealt with openly in the novel. However, Elizabeth's affects her throughout the novel. This fault and her clouded first impression of him leads her to mistake after mistake when it comes to Darcy.
