Pride and Prejudice, comparison of different films The Plot: Pride and Pejudice is one of the most famous love stories in history and is often compared to Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet. Jane Austens second book was released in 1813 but first drafts were formed in the years from 1796 to 1797 under the title “First Impressions”, however the drafts were rejected by Austens publisher. Only after Jane Austen reworked it and changed the title a publisher was found. Jane Austens book shows us how false pride and prejudices can overshadow…
What makes their marriage admirable
——my impression of<Pride and Prejudice>
It goes without saying that all people in the world expect admirable marriage, including myself of course. But after reading the book Pride and Prejudice, impressed by the love story of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, I began to think more about what admirable love should be like instead of just expecting that blindly.
There are four kinds of marriage in this novel, among which the one of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy obviously gains the most appreciation from us. And the personality of each character is sharp-cut, too. Generally, people criticize the snobbish attitude of Mr. Bingley’s sisters and bad morals of Mr.
Wickham, get tired of Mrs. Bennet’s silly, as well as her three younger daughters’, and tease Mr. Collins. Some may be fond of Jane’s kindness, while others prefer Elizabeth’s wit and frankness. Although I don’t think so highly of Jane’s kindness for it seems too blind while Elizabeth’s sense of propriety deserves to be seen as intelligence.
One thing for certain is that Elizabeth has gained so much admiration, both for her marriage and her personality.
We can make such a judgment that Lizzy’s almost perfect personalities have made a great contribution to her equally excellent marriage. With such an eager mother who desperately wanted to marry off her daughters, she still insisted to marry one she truly loves.
So she didn’t have that silly Mr. Collins like what Charlotte Lucas did. Her marrying to Mr. Darcy was also based on her love.

Usually we have to get money, property or sometimes also status involved as reality requests, but they can never be the point, unless mon.....[read full text]
In contrast, Elizabeth didn’t decide to love Darcy until she knew enough about him. I believe in this way, she would hardly regret the marriage.
To make a conclusion, what makes this marriage admirable generally includes four conditions: these two characters’ good qualities, their attitude to change themselves for love as well as the good knowledge they have of each other and the most important is love, true love.
This marriage shows us that love has an absolute power. This story’s happy ending also catches every reader’s appetite. I deeply feel that reading this book is just like reading the famous Chinese classical novel Dream of Red Mansions. Both have too many contents to be excavated and too many philosophies to be learned.
