Reading after Pride and Prejudice

Recently I have been reading a novel called Pride and Prejudice, which was written by Jane Austen. Although I haven ’t finished it yet, I still have something to write.

The writer, Jane Austen, was an English woman. She was born in Steventon, Hampshine, where her father was a rector. She was the second daughter and the seventh child in a family of eight. The first 25 years of her life Austen spent in Hampshire. Austin didn’t go to regular schools, but she read many literary works at her parents’guidance. She started writing about the age of 20, and published six novels. Pride and Prejudice (1813) and Emma (1816) are the best-known books of them. Virginia Woolf called her “the most perfect artist among women ”. Most of her novels were all adapted into movies and successful in the world.

For living in a small country town, contacting the medium and small landlords, pastor as well as their quiet and comfortable living environment, there were no significant social contradictions in her works. She described a truthful picture of her world, especially the marriage and love between gentlemen and ladies by her meticulous feminine observation. The style of her works is humorous and rich in comic conflicts, so many readers love them. This type of novels not only at that time attracted broad readers, today; it still

gives the readers unique art enjoyment.

The novel describes love process of heroine Elizabeth and hero Darcy, her elder sister Jane and Mr.Bingley, younger sister Jane and Mr.Bingley, younger sister Lydia and Mr.Wickham, her good friend Charlotte and Mr.Collins.

The marriage between Darcy and Elizabeth revealed the characteristics which constituted a successful marriage. One of these characteristics was that the feeling couldn’t be brought on by appearances and must gradually develop between the two people as they got to know one another.

The marriage between Jane Bennet and Bingley was also an example of successful marriage. They had the excellent understanding, super-excellent disposition of Jane and a general similarity of feeling and taste between her and her husband. Unlike Darcy and Elizabeth, there was a flaw in their relationship. The flaw was that both characters were too gullible and too good-hearted to ever act strongly against external forces that may attempt to separate them.

Obviously, Lydia and Wickham ’s marriage was an example of a bad marriage. Their marriage was based on appearances, good looks and youthful vivacity. Once these qualities could no longer be seen by each other, the once strong relationship would slowly fade away. Through their relationship, Jane Austen showed that hasty marriage based on superficial qualities quickly cooled and led to unhappiness.

The marriage between Mr.Collins and Charlette was based on economics rather than on love or appearance. It was a common practice during Austen’s time for woman to marry a husband to save herself from spinsterhood or to gain financial security. However, Jane Austen viewed this as a type of prostitution and disapproved it.

Elizabeth was a clever, beautiful and strong-minded woman, who looked down upon the hypocrisy in high-society circles. Facing the marriage, she was courage, visionary and good at thinking. Although, she had some wrong opinions on Darcy in the beginning, finally she knew about Darcy justly through thinking, hence gained the true love. Darcy was a handsome, rich gentleman, but proud and didn ’t want to make contact with others, leading to dissatisfactions from neighbors. Even worse, Darcy left bad impressions on the people around him and Elizabeth also hated him. She had prejudice against Darcy gradually. When Darcy proposed to her, she refused him decisively. After that, Darcy began to reflect on the self-examination and treated people with more populist. As time went by, they came across again. Darcy was not only polite, but was popular among the neighbors. Finally, regardless of his aunt ’s strong objection and concept of family, Darcy proposed to Elizabeth again. Elizabeth willingly consented. She began to appear her lively side to Darcy.

The characters have their own personalities. Mrs.Bennet was a woman who was eager to marry off her daughters. Mr.Bingley was a friendly young

man. Jane was simple, innocent and never spoke evil of others. Elizabeth was a clever girl who always had her own opinions. Mary liked reading classic books. Kitty didn’t have her own opinions but liked to follow her sister. Lydia was a girl who followed exotic things, handsome man and was somehow a little profligate.

As far as I am concerned, love is the most beautiful and valuable thing and the basis of marriage. Although material is important, we shouldn’t give up seeking for the true love. By contrasting Elizabeth with Lydia, we know the true love is essential.

Then, I think the behavior is the symbol of people. If Darcy was polite and warm-hearted in the beginning, maybe he would not have been misunderstood by Elizabeth. Therefore, never be arrogant. It is true that the first impression is important, but we should also recognize someone in long time and from all aspects. That requires we are strong-minded, reasoned and sensible. Be tolerant to anyone, and you will be more likely gain happiness.

Last but not least, this novel has an effect on today ’s Chinese society, which is full of bullionism and hedonism. Many youngers have the question, especially girls, “Rose and bread, which is more important”. Once in a famous dating show called If you are the one, a girl said “Would rather sit in the BMW car crying, don’t sit on the bike laughing”, which means she would live together with a rich man rather than a poor man. Most girls think that houses, cars and property are more important than appearances and characters. I don’t agree

with it. As new century ’s girls, who are expected to be independent, self-reliance, self-love, we could earn money through our own effects instead of putting the hope on others. Only in this way can we have the security sense and be more attractive to lovers. The lover is one of the most intimate persons and the family is a part of our lives, therefore, let’s seek for the true love and create a promising future.
