BINGLEY:

DARCY:
Frankly, Im sorry to tell you but I used to go to better parties. This is unacceptable to me.

FINAL COMMENTARIES:
ROXANA:
Elizabeth thinks that Darcy is the typical rich guy, vain and selfish, and this is confirmed
apparently when she heard his offensive and underestimated opinion about her, so she
started to have prejudices about him and try to take distance from him without give him an
opportunity. Conversely at the end she discover the truth, Mr. Darcy is a very good man
who helped a lot to her family the main problem besides his status was that he wasnt an
outgoing person so he was not good at talking to other people in general.
JOHANS:
Darcy thinks that Elizabeth

SOBRE EL ORGULLO/PRIDE)
ROXANA:
In this famous and classic novel what the author, Jane Austen, wants to transmit is that her
two principal characters shows the pride and prejudice prevailing in the society at that
time, and how it could affect relationships and how could it turn so complicated. They had
to mature and learned from their own mistakes to face the future together getting over the
pride of class from Darcy and the prejudices of Elizabeth to him.
