The continued hints throughout the novel that Elizabeth's judgment has been clouded by her vanity are now made completely clear. Elizabeth realizes that her complete lack of objectivity in judging Darcy and Wickham is the result of the fact that Darcy injured her pride on her first acquaintance with him and that Wickham flattered her by his preference for her. Austen makes it clear that pride and prejudice are not really two separate problems in the novel, but that they are intimately connected. For it is Elizabeth's pride that leads to her prejudice, a prejudice which is so strong that she has to read the letter many times and reflect at length before accepting that Mr. Darcy is telling the truth.
