Each of the 4 settings in the novel persuasion by Jane Austen holds a profound effect and significance on the characters of the novel. Firstly we have kellynch hall, the inhabitants and owners of kellynch hall are the Elliot family, Sir Walter Elliot and his two daughters, Elizabeth and Anne Elliot. Kellynch in the novel is described as a rather exquisite setting, ‘Mrs Croft was impressed with the furnishings’. Lawns and flower gardens, from the owners personalities, obsessions with appearance, desire to have a high social stance and ostentatious outlook on life we can only gather that kellynch is a rather exquisite site. The setting heavily reflects on the characters of kellynch hall- Sir Walter Elliot, a man for whom "vanity was the beginning and end of [his] character." His favourite book, the reader is told, is the Baronetage, a book which holds record of the most important families in England, and which, most importantly records Sir Walter's own personal history, And Elizabeth, who is beautiful, yet vain like her father and Anne, who has a sweetness of character, but is often overlooked by her family. Kellynch appears to be more then what seems on the surface, lavish furniture and ornaments ‘impressive furnishings’ the ornaments and furnishings almost to cover up for an underlying truth. As kellynch is an old building there are sure to be a few cracks and broken aspects of kellynch hall. Similarly the truth of the ... ... middle of paper ... ...th and wealth, but on one's accomplishments, manners, and interests. In Somersetshire, the Elliot family is considered the very best; here in Bath, they could be understood to be socially beneath their cousins, the Dalrymples. Anne has pride, and she is offended at the thought that such unaccomplished and uninteresting people could be ranked above her. Anne is unaccustomed to being thought beneath anyone, and in some ways, she has more pride than her father and sister. She cannot bear the thought that such a respected, landed family such as hers must live in rented rooms in a city, while their home is inhabited by others. Anne is further dismayed at the small degree to which her father and sister seem to be upset by this. Austen is expressing that a certain amount of pride can be a good thing, if it is based upon true merit and not false appearances.
Pride is something that is essential in human life. Due to pride, we are able to see the joys
Pride is a lust of the flesh. John wrote, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but of the world” ( 1 Jn. 2:16). The devil unsuccessfully tempted Jesus by appealing to pride, but the devil succeeded in tempting Eve through pride (Matt. 4:6, Gen 3:6, “make one wise”). Pride instead of actually elevating man, brings man low, goes before destruction, and introduces shame (Prov. 29: 23, 16: 18, 11: 2). Notwithstanding, some rejoice in their pride (cp. Zeph. 3: 11). Pride also produces contention (Prov. 13: 10). Beowulf boasted about his battles, but knew that fate was what had helped him overcome his many battles.
...corrupt the life of a good individual, ultimately resulting in detriment and turmoil. Having excessive pride in one’s self can deteriorate ones relationships with friends and family, resulting in the isolation and depression of that individual. It can also cause one to establish false and unattainable hopes, consequently resulting in delusion and harsh disappointment. Finally, it can completely deteriorate the mental health of an individual, to a point where one can simply not concede failure and generally, accept reality. Once an individual begins to build up excessive pride, their lives will plummet into adversity, and ultimately they will die as a failure. To maintain a good life, abstain from building up excessive self pride, and avoid becoming a tragic hero.

When considering the connotation of pride and whether it is a good or bad characteristic it is important to consider the definition applied. Pride, according to the Oxford Press Dictionary, is defined as “a feeling of pleasure or satisfaction that you get when you or people who are connected with you have done something well or own something that other people admire.” While this definition does not insinuate a faulty or sinful perception, and a healthy measure of pride is acceptable, there is a line of demarcation that cannot be crossed. Pride has become a customary and unquestioned value that has been ingrained in culture because society the structure and precepts of God have been removed from the worldview. Pride has evolved beyond a beneficial characteristic and, for some, has morphed from an acceptable satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, to an unreasonable desire or love of one 's own excellence.
When one examines the words “pride” and “self-respect”, it is possible one may assume that the two are identical in meaning. That the words go hand in hand like butter and bread. For quite some time I was pondering on the meaning of the two words “pride” and “self-respect”. The more consideration I put into the two the deeper I was in a maze of confusion. After a long thought on the subject I had come to my own conclusion.

What is the effect of having too much pride? Can different forms of pride such as familial and social have different consequences? Pride is usually considered to be a positive aspect in one’s life, but too much of it can have adverse results. By observing today’s society, as well as Shakespearean society, it is clear that too much pride in any form can inhibit the ability to accept differences in people and oneself.
Throughout history of mankind pride has been recognized as a precursor to destruction. We find numerous references to pride being the downfall of man in the Bible. Proverbs 16:18 says, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Men who choose to be prideful are often destined for great suffering. Famous author, C.S. Lewis says in his book Mere Christianity that, “the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice.” ( insert bib). He also says that “it is Pride which has been the chief cause of misery in every nation and every family since the
How do the aspects of setting create conflict? How does the author William Golding use these aspects to build conflict in such a simple story about young English boys? To precisely exemplify how conflict truly builds within a story. During Golding’s participation in the Second World War as a Solider, Golding had observed how the natural environment surrounding us can create such conflict. Golding’s participation in the Second World War would further prove to be fruitful material for his fiction. In the novel, Lord of the Flies Golding makes use of these aspects to indicate how easily conflict can form in which resulting in the breakdown of society. Throughout Golding’s novel, William conveys that setting has the ability to create intense conflict
When it comes to pride, when do we know that we have too much? A perfect example of having too much pride lies in the Greek tragedy, Antigone. In my opinion, it is the perfect example because the main character, Creon, is dealing with all the things that are happening because of Antigone’s decision to go against his law and many people are telling him that he is wrong, but he is too confident in his own choice that nothing bad will happen.
In 1297AD, pride was described as “A consciousness or feeling of what is befitting or due to oneself or one's position, which prevents a person from doing what he considers to be beneath him or unworthy of him; esp. as a good quality, legitimate, ‘honest’, or ‘proper pride’, self-respect; also as a mistaken or misapplied feeling, ‘false pride’” (OED 4). This type of pride is personal pride and the image a person must maintain to keep it. A person cannot allow them self to act in such a way that would be demeaning. An example of this would be a drill sergeant getting down with his recruits and performing the same demeaning drills as they are. The sergeant’s years of hard work and service would not be taken seriously if he were to lower himself to the level of their recruits therefore lowering his sense of pride.
To what extent does pride become a harmful or beneficial trait? Pride is the feeling of pleasure gained from one’s own achievements. There are two types of pride; “good” and “bad”. Good pride is when one’s intention to help another is to prosper and positively assist them. The person who helps the other gains pride after he completes his “task”, showing how his fundamental goal is to benefit the other person. On the other hand, bad pride is when one’s intention is to benefit himself, ultimately resulting in the harm for others. Men who possess bad pride put their own satisfaction in front of someone else’s, and their main goal is to essentially obtain pride. To be able to achieve this goal, men go on to “help” others to gain a better reputation.
