Book Report on Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
by Kylie V.L. Anglin, February 2007
The main theme of this book is that rational love is more real and lasting than romantic love. Rational love grows over time and is more lasting, because it does not count so much on feelings as it does on respect between a man and a woman. Elizabeth and Darcy disliked each other from their first meeting. Darcy began to fall in love with Elizabeth, because of her wit and inner strength. Elizabeth began to fall in love with Darcy, because she appreciated the kindnesses done for her and her family by him; they respected one another. As Proverbs 31:10-12 states, "Who shall find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above [rubies]. The heart of her husband trusteth in her, and he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life."
