Elizabeth Bennet—A Proper Pride

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature

Elizabeth Bennet—A Proper Pride

Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Meet the charming heroine from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The story of her complicated relationship with Mr. Darcy is a realistic Cinderella story and has lent itself to numerous adaptations, including Bridget Jones’s Diary. Consider the integral role that money and social class play in this classic tale of love and romance.

If you compare Elizabeth Bennet to Bridget Jones then you can see how much female behavior in our society has deteriorated. Today it's even worse. If you educate yourself you realize that today's female behavior has reached an absolute low like never seen in history. I wonder where that may lead.
