Charlotte Lucas
Character Description
Who is she?
Elizabeth Bennet's best friend and eldest daughter of the Lucas family (she is 27 years old). She
becomes Charlotte Collins when she marries Mr Collins
Very good kind of woman
"Sensible and intelligent young woman"
"I am not romantic, you know"
Elizabeth says that Charlotte has "sacrificed every better feeling to worldly advantage"
She accepts Mr Collins for "the pure and disinterested desire of an establishment"
In Chapter 32, we see that Charlotte suspects Darcy's interest in Elizabeth. In Chapter 57, we find out
in a letter from Mr Collins to Mr Bennet that she is pregnant.
