Darcy very much reflects the changing standards of English masculinity as unlike the heroes of the 18th century with their excessive politeness and unwillingness to offend, Mr. Darcy says whatever he likes, which showed his authenticity and honesty, which were the most important attributes for a man in the new Romantic age. Darcy apologises to Miss Bennet for his brusque rudeness, his honesty meant that change of heart was sincere, and not the polished words of a follower of the cult of sensibility. More broadly, the character of Mr.
Darcy showed the emergence of a new type of rawer masculinity that could not tolerate the foppish, superficial values of the previous century. Darcy is 'silent, grave and indifferent', words in this new moral universe which signal pure approval". Nicolson further argued that a character like Mr. Darcy reflects changes in British life as the Romantic age was a time when "What mattered was authentic, self-generated worth". In the Romantic age, those who prefer the "authentic" world of the outdoors are usually seen as the more sincere and passionate in their emotions, and in this sense, Darcy's preference for being in his garden at Pemberley or otherwise on the grounds of the estate shows him as a Romantic hero.
Bennet and Mrs. Bennet despite having been married for 20 years; by contrast after his engagement, Darcy for the first time calls his fiancee Elizabeth, which shows the depth of his love. The British cultural critic Robert Irvine described the appeal of Mr.

Darcy to women as that of an "absolute and unconditioned male need for a woman". For the British middle class or "middling sort" as Austen called them, to emulate the landed elite, however, retained its social superiority. Darcy reflects this trend. Bingley suggests that he might like to one day build an estate like Pemberley, he is informed by Mr. Darcy that it is not the estate itself, but rather what it contains, its cultural heritage like the family library that makes Pemberley special as Mr. Bingley cannot be the heir to a family library built up over generations like the one Mr.

Barfoot described Pemberley as the "marvelous accretion of all the choices made by his predecessors", providing as the novel calls it "a kind of model" for how to live properly. A sign of the depth of Darcy's love for Elizabeth can be seen in that he tracks down Lydia and Wickham despite all of the costs.
Pride & Prejudice and the Purpose of Marriage
Irvine argued that for someone like Darcy who lives about half of the year in London, which is a glittering and far-away place for people of Meryton, this proves his social superiority as his "London manners" are described variously in the novel as "fashionable" and "elegant". Irvine argued that Elizabeth appears to be unworthy of Darcy not because of their differences in income level, but because of the class divide as she contemplates the glories of Pemberley.
Wickham may not be as wealthy as Darcy, but his commission in the militia would have made an eminently respectable man to marry in Regency England. Austen writes it was because of "a motive within her of goodwill which could not be overlooked. It was gratitude - Gratitude, not merely for having loved her once, but for loving her still well enough, to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanying her rejection".
Darcy can see Elizabeth honestly and can love her as well. Darcy has proven that he loves Elizabeth but she did not notice that there was a good Darcy deep down in his heart.

Both Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet feature as part of science fiction author Philip Jose Farmer 's fictional ' Wold Newton family ', which links numerous literary characters such as Tarzan and Sherlock Holmes via an interconnected family tree of people and events.

Jane Austen Quotes on Life, Love, and Friendship
Jane Austen character. Dr Norman, an Oxford graduate and GP who has produced 16 biography and history books, believes Jane's reaction to finding out about Blackall getting married in holds the key to her emotions. He said: 'Nothing much is heard until Jane found out that Blackall was getting married many years later, when she wrote a rather sour letter about it that was quite unlike her. In a letter to her brother Francis in July , Jane said she had heard the news of Blackall's marriage to Susannah Lewis.
Quite how the encounter in with Dr Blackall led to the falling out between Cassandra and Jane is unclear because there is a gap in the correspondence between the sisters. The fact that Cassandra burnt a substantial number of letters is seen as indicative of the anger between them. Dr Norman now believes the letters were burned to hide the rift between sisters that ruined their close relationship.

He believes Jane's novel The Watsons - two years after she met Blackall - was based on their dispute, telling a thinly-disguised tale of sisterly betrayal. In the novel, the heroine Emma has a passionate love affair ruthlessly destroyed by her sister who has 'no faith, no honour, no scruples, if she can promote her own advantage'. As further proof of the rivalry, Dr Norman points to a poem written by Jane in , discovered among her letters.
The letter, sent from Cassandra to her niece Fanny Knight after Jane's death in , said: 'I thank God that I was enabled to attend to her to the last and amongst my many causes of self-reproach I have not to add any wilful neglect of her comfort.
