Sample text

They are to marry at Gretna Green. The second letter dashes this hope by telling of Colonel Forster's visit to Longbourn . Lydia has brought disgrace on herself and her family. When Darcy calls on her, Elizabeth reveals everything to him. He is shocked , and after ensuring she is safely in the hands of the Gardiners, takes his leave. Elizabeth admits to herself that she could love Darcy, but does so at the very point when she believes that this last disgrace in her family must forever rule out the possibility of his marrying her.

Wickham's insensitiveness is apparent from his renewing his attentions to Elizabeth. She has the moral courage to indicate her better appreciation of Darcy, and his accusation that Darcy has only the appearance of honesty is a staggering and ironic piece of effrontery. Chapter 42 Summary Elizabeth examines the ill-judged marriage of her parents and reflects on the ill effects it has had on the entire family. She clings to the thought of her trip to the Lake District, but when eventually she leaves with the Gardiners, it has to be restricted to Derbyshire.

Elizabeth is relieved, but continues to be harassed by her mother. When Charlotte Lucas visits Longbourn, she is excitedly told of Elizabeth's recalcitrance , and her curiosity is aroused about Collins, whose pride is hurt. Commentary Mr Bennet, as ever, shows a 'calm unconcern' in the face of his wife's extreme agitation and playfully sides with Elizabeth, his favourite. Mrs Bennet wants Elizabeth 'brought to reason', but as Elizabeth noted from the start, Collins is not a sensible man, and it is entirely reasonable for her to reject him.
