Pride and Prejudice is the story of four marriages in British country of 18th century.

IV. Comments on the book

1. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the book? (≥50words)

Although Austen's theme is narrow, the story is quite dull, but she is good at shape distinctive characters in ordinary daily things. Whether Elizabeth and Darcy that the author thinks should be positive character, or Collins this kind of being the object of sarcasm, she presents themin a real way. At the same time, Austin's language is after temper, she in a dialogue art exquisite humor, satire, often with funny witty language to foil character's personality. This kind of artistic innovation made her works have their own characteristics

2. What is the part of this book that had the greatest impact on you? Why? (≥50words)

With the revealing of the truth, Elizabeth's prejudice on Darcy becomes deeper. Until when Elizabeth refuses Darcy's long love letter, she experiences the fierce shock. After undergoing a period of painful and profound thought, she could not help but to shout how despicable she is。When we see the blame from heart, we find her shortcomings and the courage that she could face herself directly. It is her bringing that plays a role; she starts to give up the bias caused by self-esteem, truly and seriously understand Darcy. Elizabeth wouldn't believe the shameless lies about Darcy said by Han and eliminate the misunderstanding and prejudice. She finally falls in love with Darcy.

Is the writing effective, powerful, difficult, or beautiful? (≥50words)

I think it is helpful .The different treatments and attitudes towards these marriages reflect Jane Austen's views on marriage. It's wrong for marriage to pursue property, money and high status. She stresses the importance of an ideal marriage and takes the feelings of both men and women as the cornerstone of the ideal marriage. We also learn that pride and prejudice are the very common problems and weaknesses in human's personality. Everyone is easy to be driven by their own subjective consciousness or other people's wrong comments. It may cause a misunderstanding toward a thing or a person. What we should do is to avoid these weaknesses and make them under good regulation. Everything must be based on objective sense and commented with a deeper understanding.

1. If you could talk to the author, what would you say? (≥50words)

In this great book, you amply demonstrates your point about love and marriage. And you let me know that at that time, according to the social conditions in Britain, a good marriage for a young woman was critical. And in the 19th century, women were not well respected compared with the ones in the present society. There was no equality. between woman and man. Women were considered to be inferior to men in terms of intelligence and capacity. Now through this book I find the courage to show ourselves.

What did you learn about yourself as a result of reading this book? (≥50words)

Thank you .after reading your book I form a positive attitiud to the marrige.now, I think love and marriage only by appreciating the marriage founded on the basis of mutual understanding

and true love, but also by satirizing the marriage founded on the basis of origin and desire. The marriage based on social position and money can't bring happy life.

1) [Useful expression] (p. 6 ) She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper.

[Sentence you made]: He is a man in possession of a good fortune.

[Sentence you made]: From the fact that after 100,000 years or a million years or whatever it is, eventually life would grow tiresome, that hardly shows that life has grown tiresome after 50 years or 80 years or 100.

3) [Useful expression] (p. 60 ) ``Indeed I have, Sir,'' was her answer. ``She is a great deal too ill to be moved. Mr. Jones says we must not think of moving her. We must trespass a little longer on your kindness.'

[Sentence you made]: I will trespass on your hospitality

4) [Useful expression] (p. 124 ) ``I remember hearing you once say, Mr. Darcy, that you hardly ever forgave, that your resentment once created was unappeasable. You are very cautious, I suppose, as to its being created.''

[Sentence you made]: I remember hearing you once say , that you hardly ever forgave, that your resentment once created was unappeasable

5) [Useful expression] (p. 292 ) Elizabeth could not repress a smile at this, but she answered only by a slight inclination of the head.

[Sentence you made]: However, because they don't have the emotional tools to integrate the hurt caused by abusive adults, they often repress their feelings as their first line of defence. General remarks: (≥200words)

The writer Jane Austen disclosed mid-class young ladies' different ideas of marriage and love through describing the different ways in which the Bennet girls doing with their marriage problems, and this undoubtedly shows the writer's idea about love and marriage: it's wrong to get married just for property, wealth and status while neither would it be without caring about those elements. Jane Austen just attached great significance to marriage through her novel by telling people that marriage should be regarded carefully because it is not a game you could just enjoy without prudent consideration. She also wanted to deliver information that marriage should be based on real love between the lovers. The female subject Elizabeth is a mid-class girl, and Darcy proposed to her regardless of the gap between them, but Elizabeth refused because of his pride had formed Eli's prejudice. Cause Darcy's pride was a suggest of status gap between he and Eli, he wouldn't have the same thought with Eli and consequently the ideal marriage. But later Darcy's doings especially his change of the prideful manner eliminated Eli's misunderstandings and prejudice about him, and Eli accepted his proposal. Those two opposite attitudes reflect females pursue of independent personality and equality. I think Elizabeth has personality ethic which caused her independent idea about love and marriage and in consequence she earned a happy life. There're also Eli's sisters' love stories served as contrasts to the female subject's ideal marriage, such as Charlotte and Collin's life: they do had a luxury life, but there's no real love between them and this kind of marriage is surely a tragedy of society.
