In chapter 5, page 21, of Pride and Prejudice, Miss Lucas was telling Lizzy about Darcy. She said, ''His pride does not offend me so much as pride often does, because there is an excuse for it. One cannot wonder that so very fine a young man, with family, fortune, everything in his favour, should think highly of himself. If I may so express it, he has a right to be proud."
Do you think Miss Lucas was misleading with ther opinion and how would you describe the acceptance of pride in today's society as compared to Austen's time?
