Elizabeth and Jane Bennet

At first glance Jane and Elizabeth seem virtual sisters - sophisticated, prudent, and capable of irony. They are portrayed infinitely better as the remaining three siblings - charming, pretty and agreeable. However, there are fine differences between them. Jane is all sweetness, all faith and a bit gullible, sometimes, as she never sees anything bad in anybody. She seems to be happy with the traditional position of a woman in the society. Jane would willingly have gone through the world without believing that so much wickedness existed in the whole mankind. Elizabeth, on the other hand is more realistic about people, as can be seen from this extract, when she was with slight irony analyzing Darcy’s and her character:

´We are each of an unsocial, taciturn disposition, unwilling to speak, unless we expect to say something that will amaze the whole room, and be handed down to posterity with all the éclat of a proverb.´

They both loved their family, Jane was especially attached to the children - she loved herself to spend time with the little Gardiners. Jane was honestly blind; Elizabeth had more quickness and observation. I, personally feel that Elizabeth was somehow more courageous and active than Jane.

Mr. Collins, Lady Catherine de Burgh

Mr. Collins was the clergyman at Lady de Burgh’s property - Rosings. Mr. Collins didn´t have a very good upbringing and it was his fortunate chance that he got under the patronage of Lady de Burgh. He was a tall, heavy looking, 25 years old man. He felt a high respect for her and had a very good opinion of himself. His artificial gallantry and exaggerated civility was rather comical. He was an odd mixture of pride, self-importance and humility, but in principle he wasn´t a bad man.

Lady Catherine was a tall, large woman, with strongly-marked features, which might once been handsome. Whatever she said was spoken in so authoritative a tone and in so decisive a manner that it was obvious that she was not used to have her judgement controverted. She had the ability to put things in order and silence the complaints of the cottagers. I think that she was also cordial and large-minded. She loved music.
