Essay on Pride and Prejudice as Romantic Novel and Romantic Criticism - Pride and Prejudice as Romantic Novel and Romantic Criticism     To a great extent, Jane Austen satirizes conventional romantic novels by inverting the expectations of "love at first sight" and the celebration of passion and physical attractiveness, and criticizing their want of sense.
