  • 1. Amanda Castelius SP07bEngelska B2009-03-27Book report on Pride and Prejudice“Discuss the importance of social class in the novel, especially as it impacts the relationshipbetween Elizabeth and Darcy.”I believe that you marry someone out of love and because you want to show that to the world.This question is spoken of in the novel, and though this is a satire, you get the idea reallyquick that it is crucial that they get married very soon, partly because the Loungbourn estatewhere they live is entailed, which means that the house has to be inherited in a specific order.This comes forward particularly in this book, when you get to know the family Bennet whohas five daughters that they have to marry off, and that preferably to someone with a highersocial class then what is theirs. Most of the girls in the family are really excited to marry, butElizabeth, whom I will focus on in this report, along with Mr. Darcy, who I will tell you moreabout further on in the text.The novel Pride and Prejudice was written in 1813 by the author Jane Austen, and isprobably one of Austen’s most popular novels, which have been read all over the world inmany different languages, by many different people.In the novel, Elizabeth Bennet is a daughter of Mr. Bennet; she has four sisters, none of themmarried just as her. She has an important role in the book, I believe that it’s because shedoesn’t rush to get married, she wants someone who meet her standards, and if she doesn’tfind anyone who can live up to the standards, she wouldn’t be so concerned about itElizabeth meets a man named Mr. Darcy early on in the novel, on a ball where he comesalong with his good friend Mr. Bingley. Mr. Darcy is an extremely wealthy young man, andthe rumor of his fortune of £10.000 quickly spreads all across the little society where theylive.Everyone is very keen to get to know Mr. Darcy, and so are the Bennets, but his vaingloriousand proud way very soon disappointed them. Elizabeth grew to hate him already when theywere at the ball in Meryton, when Mr. Darcy made a comment about her; “She is tolerable;but not handsome enough to tempt me.” (p. 7)

Elizabeth’s mothergets very excited when she hears about Mr. Darcy’s money, and she can’t wait to marry offone of her daughters to him.Elizabeth’s sister Jane quickly forms a relationship with Mr. Darcy’s friend Mr. Bingley, andthey both falls in love with each other,Conclusion
