Pride and Prejudice
Some things to keep in mind:
·The flawed lens
·Use of different narrative Styles dialogue vs. Epistolary tradition
·Both used for characterization (Collins’ long winded speeches are reflected in the long winded letters | contrasted With Elizabeth and Darcy’s quick witted exchanges)
·Letters: Serve as monologues And reveal inner feelings and sentiments
·Dialogue: Character Interactions that develop their complexities in different scenarios
·Both serve for plot development
·Morality in P&P
oAusten feared that economic Considerations would overcome morality in human conduct (reflected in Wickham’s Mercenary personality)
oSense of morality being Instilled in the readers as they read about the events that occur
oMessage is made more impactful By the characterization and the readers’ ability to empathize with the Characters
oBildungsroman: Through Elizabeth who learns the lesson, we learn along with her
