"You ought certainly to forgive them, as a Christian, but never to admit them in your sight, or allow thier names to be mentioned in your hearing, That is his notion of CHristian forgiveness"

This is the final note of how rediculous Mr. Collins is, and how skewed his world of class and punishment is.

In this section Elizabeth shows that she is stronger in character than others are in class, by standing up to Lady Catherine. Then when Darcy is talking to Elizabeth later, he tells her that her standing up to Lady Catherine was what tipped the scale in his knowing that she was the one. That alone tells us that Darcy appreciates Liza for her mind and strength and has overcome the issues of class.

Of course in the end we see that Lydia and Wickham are always looking for a hand out, and the family continues to evolve as we expect them to.

I appreciated it when Austen made some unexpected turns in the plot. I think that Elizabeth earned Darcy's admiration with the duel between her and Lady Catherine.

I also think that Mr. Bennet didn't turn out to be the evolving character that I thought he would be. Maybe that is the norm for the male's roles in that time period. I do, however, still like it when he needles Mrs. Bennet.

It is quite interesting that there are five daughters and they all at the same time start to shop for men. Within approximately a year there are three that are married off. What were they doing prior to that? Wasn't Jane 27 years old. She was getting up there to be in the line up for a marriage proposal.

I appreciated Eliabeths fire with Catherine. It was in charecter fo her as she was shown to us in the beginning. Bingly and Jane were the affiable middle of the road lovers who just kind of let their romance develop while Eliabeth and Darcy were the driven couple whose relationship ebbed and flowed. theirs will be the passionite marriage wihile Janes will be comfortable. Lydias will be a constant mess and charlottes will just be tolerable. the older Bennetts marriage reminds me of some I know where one is contantly picking on the other and the other ignores it .
