Pride and Prejudice

Elizabeth Bennett

I personally believe that Elizabeth Bennett has serious emotonal problems. I hope that she learns from her mistakes and turns into a better person. She HORRIFIES me. Pride and Prejudice should have left her out. The book would have been MUCH better.

I believe you have read the wrong book.

Elizabeth Bennet is one of the most charming characters in all literature: witty, at ease, confident, responsive, respectful, articulate, caring, and responsible.

That's all.

I have to agree with Joey, it is clear that you have not read this book!

I greatly agree with you both.Elizabeth

is so reasonable,logical,realistic and

experienced unlike her sister Jane.

Her only fault is her prejudice against

Darcy which makes her misjudges him.

totally agree with the last three comments...i mean when i first read rachaels comments, i thought wow, wht did she read???

r u sure u read the right book??


I have a question. In chapter 7, Jane goes to Bingley's house on horseback, because the the horses were engaged in the farm, and she couldn't avail the carriage.

Later, Elizabeth walks there to meet her "as she was no horsewoman, walking was her only alternative." This means, at this point, there was at least one horse for her to avail. Therefore, when Jane had gone, there were at least two of them. Why could she not avail the carriage?

Am I missing something?



how is elizabeth headstrong in pride and prejudice?

can you give me textual evidence of elizabeth wanting to marry for love?

Suman .. im not sure but i think that Jane went to Bingley's house by feet and because of the bad weather she got soaked and she had to stay there for couple of days , then Elizabeth visit Jane to see her ( Elizabeth also went to Bingley's house by feet) no hourses :)

did you get what you want ?? i hope


to suman .. im sorry , that's the write answer :

Mrs Bennet makes Jane ride because rain was coming, and so she would be forced to spend the night, and so more time with Mr Bingley. Elizabeth is no horsewoman, she doesnt ride the horse, she also prefers walks. In my opinion she did it so that she wouldnt really be fit to be seen, to rebel a bit against the mother and slightly provoke the Bingley sister.
