Pride and prejudged
Orgueil and prejudged ( Pride and Damage ) is most known of the six Romance S of Jane Austen.
Funny and romantic, the masterpiece of Jane Austen remains quite simply impossible to circumvent because behind the mask of appearances and the prejudices of the first impressions, the author again delivers to us a perfect painting of the British company to the turning of 18th and 19th centuries.
In a small village of the England under George III, Mrs. Simpleton wants to marry his five daughters (Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia) in order to ensure a bright future to them. She hopes that of them Mr. Bingley will be able to like one, their close new rich person. Unfortunately proud Mr. Darcy, friend influential of Bingley, sees of a very evil eye his friend getting excited of Jane Bennet, oldest of the sisters, fear of an unhappy marriage.
Elizabeth is the heroin of this novel. “It is of a sharp intelligence, a wisdom distant from any pedantry which enables him to support peacefully and with indulgence the skimped provincial atmosphere in which it is necessary for him to live. Its naturally merry character puts it in a position to perceive the humorous or grotesque side of any situation whatever it is”. It follows with attention the evolution of the feelings of her sister preferred while paying attention to the officer Wickham, a tempting soldier who does not leave it indifferent. From time to time where it is obliged to speak to unpleasant Mr. Darcy, it does not try to be made more pleasant.
Miss Bennet does not miss certain pride, or rather of a certain direction of the dignity which forces to him to defend its entourage. This is why when Darcy, the friend of Bingley, considers with some contempts the ways of doing of his/her mother and her sisters, she says: “I could easily forgive him his pride if it had not mortified mine”. It is from there that is born the “prejudice” which it has against Darcy which is however secretly enthusiast of it.
Will Elizabeth Bennet like Darcy? In will she be liked? Will she marry it?
It appears clearly that there is in fact only one hero who is heroin, and who it is by her, in her and for her that all occurs.

Second of the five girls in the family of Simpleton, Elizabeth is depicted as being most rational and most clever of the phratry. While his/her Jane older sister is regarded as the beautiful one, Elizabeth is frequently indicated like the favorite one of his/her father; however two elder, more judicious and the nonfrivolous ones, hold this place in the heart of their father. It frequently shares its sarcastic observations on the antics of her mother or its younger sisters Mary (quiet and without attraction), Kitty and Lydia (haunted by the militia only), the most socially idiots of this time. Elizabeth is described as being physically attractive with a particular mention for " its eyes fins". Affinities of character which it shares with Jane, make of the two sisters of the affectionate and devoted friends bringing their own sensitivity to the resolution of the problems of each one. Elizabeth is also described as being sure of its judgment on the others. It is not shown not intimidated by the social status of people whom it meets, such Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Mr. Darcy. But its stubbornness can lead it to errors fraught with consequences. The novel concentrates mainly on the report/ratio of Elizabeth with Mr. Darcy, a rich and proud young man who, at the time of its first ball in Hertfordshire, refuses to invite Elizabeth, describing it as woman not enough beautiful to try it. This carries out Elizabeth to affirm its aversion and its scorn for Darcy, which, in addition to being haughty with it, is at the origin of the presumptuous interference in the relationship between Jane and its friend Charles Bingley. Shortly after the accused ball, Elizabeth makes the meeting of charming George Wickham. It makes good impression on it, and its vexations with Darcy which despoiled it of its right to the legitimate transmission of a cure depending on Pemberley, further increases the resentment of Elizabeth for Darcy. Consequently, when Darcy (which, to its great surprise, fell in love with it) the proposal, it refuses it by affirming that it would never marry the man which destroyed the happiness of Jane and which lack of honor to make treat the godson of his father, Wickham, as one bet. Darcy, obliged to justify its actions, explains in a letter the reasons for its interference in the idylle of Jane and Bingley, and the sordid springs of its relationship with Wickham, this last being only one cheating, dépravé and player, who runs after the dowries to reinflate his honor and gambling debts. In the light of these revelations, Lizzy is forced to revalue its opinions and its feelings for Darcy. And when this last intervenes financially to save Lydia, the benjamine sisters Bennet, dishonor of a marriage with Wickham, it accepts its feelings for him and ends up accepting its proposal for a marriage.
