Key Questions
I believe that this book promotes the power of women, which is a strong belief of mine.
Some themes include, don't judge too hard before getting to know someone first. This is important because it shows how Lizzie judges many characters along the way, but she learns that people need to get to know each other first before coming to a conclusion. Classicism and reputation are also big themes in this book because it shows how women in this society were expected to behave in a certain way. It is important because Darcy wants to marry Lizzie despite her lower class and poor reputation. This book conveys how people are willing to put aside major differences in order to be with people they love, reinforcing all the themes together.
It has given women a role model to look up to during the times of oppression for this gender. It also teaches how people need to understand each other, and not judge too quickly.
It helped me see how even though people may seem prideful on the surface, they can have a tragic past that can affect them deeply.
It shows how people are too quick to judge, and do not look at the bigger picture. They gain opinions too quickly without trying to understand a person first.
I believe women during the 1800's would not be empowered to change as quickly, or maybe not at all. This book also shows how two unlike people can overcome their differences to work together as one. Pride and Prejudice provides many topics that help people obtain a better understanding of the world around them.
Because Jane Austen wrote this in 1800's during a time where women were mere trophy wives, it brought a new perspective to this society.

Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice is about a young woman, Elizabeth Bennet. She is a modern woman for her time and age, but is very opinionated and headstrong. She encounters many conflicts that involve a rich and single man who later becomes a love interest: Fitzwilliam Darcy.
"Pride and Prejudice seduces us and makes us fall in love, over and over again." - Los Angeles Book Review

"When we turn to Austen—and above all, to “Pride and Prejudice”—the qualities that come to mind are confidence, mastery, serenity..."- The New Yorker

"I expected Pride and Prejudice to be a romance, exploring the courtship of Lizzie and Darcy, which it is, but I was so pleased that there was so much more in this novel to explore."- Literary Exploration
Elizabeth, or Lizzie, is not fond of Mr. Darcy when they first meet. As the book progresses, her prejudice, and his pride subdue as they discover a new found love for each other

This book has won no awards, however, this book's status as a classic is award enough.
Connections to Fahrenheit 451
Pride and Prejudice set a new theme
for novels. The book featured a type
of wit, sarcasm, and irony that had yet to be written about.

The characters in the book were fresh. One of the character Mr. Darcy set the stage for the future cliche handsome hero character.

Historically, the book exposed how cruel those in 19th century aristocratic England can be. The romance in it inspired future love novels, for example "Fifty Shades of Grey.,"

There has even been a modernized web series based on this influential book.
Montag and Lizzie both start out close-minded, but as the story progresses their views on the world change.
Faber is a guiding figure to Montag as he teaches him about the life with books. Jane is Lizzie's sister and role model because she helps Lizzie to not criticize and judge so easily.
Although love is displayed differently in these novels, both show how love is a fundamental part of life. In Fahrenheit 451, love is nonexistent in this world where people are too consumed with technology. Montag realizes how empty their world is without love. In Pride and Prejudice, love is shown through relationships between family and love interests. Love helps the characters overcome their differences and help support them through difficult times.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. (Shayna)

But no sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes. (Joan)

Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us. (William)
