He explains her that Mr. Darcy and he grew up in the same house, but Darcy threw him out when his father died and he was forced to earn a living while Mr Darcy inherited all the family possessions. This makes Elizabeth even more hate Mr. Darcy. Meanwhile, everyone are sure that Mr Bingley and Jane will married but unexpectedly, Mr Bingley leave the house, leaving everything. Elizabeth is convinced that this is the fault of Caroline Bingley. But finally, Elizabeth discover that it was Mr Darcy. When he declares his love for her, she rejects him.

After this, Mr Darcy writes a letter for her, telling her the truth about Mr Wickham and the reason why he stood in the middle with Mr Bingley and Jane. Then, Elizabeth regrets to blame him.

Elizabeth Bennet
Second of the Bennet sisters. She is the protagonist heroine. She is the favorite of his father and less attached to her mother.
She is smart, witty, sarcastic, but she can also be proud and prejudiced. She likes to analyze reality, especially the characters of others.
She is very close to her sister Jane, who protects because she is a much more naive and timid character.
Jane Bennet
She is twenty-two years old, and she is the oldest of the Bennet sisters. She is considered a beauty. Jane has a strong bond with Elizabeth, although both are very different in character. Jane is quiet, kind and unable to think ill of anyone. She falls in love with Mr Bingley (very similar in personality to her) and it's reciprocated.
Charles Bingley
He is Mr Darcy's best friend. He's nice and impressionable. His arrival at Neitherfield Park fills with happiness to Mrs Bennet, who sees him as a potential husband for one of her daughters.

Pride and Prejudice
"Of course I understand" said Mr Collins, "that young ladies often do not accept a proposal of marriage the first time. I am therefore not at all discouraged, and sincerely hope we shall be married soon."
"Dear Jane, I can never be as happy as you, because I'm not as good as you. No, no, let me find my own husband. Perhaps, if I'm very lucky, I may meet another Mr Collins one day."
This book makes me be stressed all time, because I was intrigued to know the end of the story. I really enjoyed the plot of this book because it's a love story, which explains to the reader the social statements, and how the money can change the people. I liked the end, because everybody finally find their love.
"Indeed, Mr Collins, all praise of me wil be unnecessary. Pay me the compliment of believing what I say. I hope you will be very happy and very rich, but I cannot accept your proposal."
"I remember when Colonel Millar's regiment went away, twenty-five years ago" she said, "I thought my heart was broken."
"I must go and tell my mother," continued Jane, "as he has just gone to ask my father's permission."
"Well, well," said he, "don't make yourself unhappy. If you are a good girl for the next ten years, I'll take you to the theatre at the enf of that time."
Jane Austen

Jane Austen was born in 1775 and died in 1817. She was a british novelist, during the periods of Regency. She use an irony that makes her to be like an important classic novelist. She was born in Steventon (Hampshire). Her family belonged to the agrarian bourgeoisie. That's why, Jane Austen puts all his works, always around the marriage of his protagonist. Her works had been filmed in different ocasions, for example Stronger than Pride, that's guided by Robert Z. Leonard. Or Pride and Prejudice, that's guided by Gurinder Chadha in 2004, and another one in 2005 guided by Joe Wright.
