  • DO NOT OVER-GENERALISE
  • The absurdities of Mr Collins and Lydia Bennet: For example, in Mr Collins letter to Mrs Gardiner regarding Lydia's elopement
  • Austen creates vivid and memorable characters
  • TYW- Charlotte Lucus and Mr Collins
  • Charlotte and Johh- both couples are in a loveless marraige
  • Mr Collins and John- condescending attitudes towards women
  • John's authority and disregard makes him ignorant of her true thoughts and feelings
  • Austen's use narrative technique- Darcy is a concealed character
