Transcript of Pride and Prejudice

Figurative Language of
Pride and Prejudice Novel written by
Jane Austen Simile Personification The title "Pride and Prejudice" "...If she should die, it would be a comfort to know that it was all in pursuit of Mr. Bingley, and under your orders." “ The business of her life was to get her daughters married; its solace was visiting and news” Idiom This quote is considered a idiom to me since the use of "grew on" doesn't mean the manners were literally growing on her. It was figuratively pointing out that with Jane being forced to stay at the house of Bingley from her illness, the household found it to be a pleasure that she was there just from her wonderful personality. This quote is also a perfect example of the book in general and shows the relations between Jane, Elizabeth, Mrs. Hurst and Miss Bingley. I feel that this is a simile it points out the love relation happening between Jane and Mr. Bingley through comic relief. This is also a good foreshadow since Jane and Bingley end up being married later on. I consider this a metaphor for the book through Mrs. Bennet since her main goal, and the plot of the story if for the 5 daughters to marry. Another quote that could work as metophor for the story is the first sentence of the book, "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife”. The title of the book is a perfect example of personification since Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy both show pride and prejudice throughout the story. When they first meet at the ball, Mr. Darcy has so much pride in himself that he wouldn't dare go for a girl like Elizabeth, who in return had enough prejudice against hearing his feelings to not realize her love for him until halfway on in the story. Metaphor Hyperbole "... I always keep servants that can do their own work; my daughters are brought up differently." "Miss Bennet's pleasing manners grew on the good-will of Mrs. Hurst and Miss Bingley" This quote is used as a hyperbole to me since Mrs. Bennet is obvious to point out how perfect her daughters are. It also shows how much she wants the girls to be married, which is her main goal of the story.
