Other P+P notes

HideShow resource information
  • John believes his wife's mind is too fragile and therefore discourages her to write but she craves mental stimulation
  • Collin's attempts to replace Elizabeth's beliefs with his own correspondes to John's dismissal of his wife's intellectual abilites. When she refuses, he is not deterred, and he replies with a hope to receive a more favourable answer
  • Collin's is patronising - "Dear Cousin"
  • John is similarly patronising and belittling- multiple reference to his wife being a child- "My little goose" "Little girl" "Little heart"
