Abstract

The dominant theme here, as in other of Jane Austen’s novels, is marriage: her art is to focus critically on a few genteel characters who are affected by the progress of two or more of their number coming together in courtship, meeting with difficulties, eventually resolving them, and marrying happily at last. In Pride and Prejudice three marriages are made, other than that of Elizabeth and Darcy, and each in its way sheds light on the marriage of hero and heroine; but so, too, do some other long-standing marriages, especially that of Mr and Mrs Bennet.
