Elizabeth Bennet lives in Netherfield with her 4 sisters and her parents.
Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy arrive at Netherfield.
Mr. Bingley develops interest in Jane Bennet.
Mr. Darcy has rivalries with Elizabeth at first.
Darcy and Elizabeth meet at Darcy's aunt's house and he starts to fall for her.
He proposes, but she refuses.
Darcy's aunt talks to Elizabeth about marrying Darcy, and forbids it to her.
Darcy helps Jane and Bingley to get back together and saves the Bennets reputation.
He proposes again and she accepts.
It can be found in chapter 8 (pages 20 and 21)
Quotes
"Pardon me for interrupting you, madam," cried Mr. Collins; "but if she is really headstrong and foolish, I know not whether she would altogether be a very desirable wife to a man in my situation, who naturally looks for happiness in the marriage state. If therefore she actually persists in rejecting my suit, perhaps it were better not to force her into accepting me, because if liable to such defects of temper, she could not contribute much to my felicity."
Role of women:
Chapter 20, page 54
Class differences:
"In marrying your nephew, I should not consider myself as quitting that sphere. He is a gentleman; I am a gentleman's daughter; so far we are equal."
Chapter 56, page 165
Pride and Prejudice
Pride:

Represented by Darcy because of his behaviour.
Prejudice:
Represented by Elizabeth because of her first thoughts about Darcy.
Although the title represents the main characters, everyone has these features both in the novel and in life.
