“When Elizabeth does come to have some feelings for Mr. Darcy she understands her change as above all, 'a motive within her of good will which could not be overlooked. It was gratitude- Gratitude, not merely for having once loved her, but for loving her still well enough, to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanyi... ... middle of paper ... ...rself, knows what she is capable of, and because of that never sells herself short. Even as she does give into society by accepting a new freedom, boundaries, uncertainties, and hope, her authenticity while doing so is why she is admired by many readers. Austen creates Elizabeth as a genuine, yet bold character whom readers can easily connect with. This gives readers a sense of security as they understand the frequency of imperfections of others like themselves in society.
Lady Russell - she really has a good heart and good sense. Lady Russell is not a fool like Mrs. Bennett but she's not an ideal, she gives good advice totally unsuited to Anne's particular situation. I don't think we are supposed to like her – the reader is glad that Anne has her and appreciate her for that reason. Mrs. Musgrove - simple, warm-hearted, affectionate and unpretentious. EMMA The narrator opens the novel by introducing us to Emma Woodhouse, a girl endowed with “some of the best blessings of existence,” including good looks, intelligence, riches, and an affectionate father.
She was sensible and clever; but eager in everything; her sorrows, her joys, could have no moderation. She was generous, amiable, interesting: she was everything but prudent.”(1.V) This is a good introduction because it encapsulates much of what is evaluated in Marianne throughout the novel. First, the two sisters are compared and contrasted for the similarities and differences in their demeanor, values, self -control and interactions in society and various relationships. Then, in Marianne alone, there is a clear lack of balance between the sense and sensibility of her actions and feelings. Finally, her judgment... ... middle of paper ... ...ves; and her whole heart became, in time, as much devoted to her husband, as it had once been to Willoughby.” (203.III.
It is these qualities that display Cordelia's clear comprehension of the duties implicit in the father-daughter and king-subject bond. Part of Cordelia's moral integrity lies in her bluntness, and while Lear's daughter does seem tactless in her first appearance, saying, "Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave My heart into my mouth. I love your Majesty According to my bond, no more nor less, (I.i.91-93)" it is this honesty that contrast her to her sisters. In Lear, the long diatribes of compliment often belong to the most vile of characters, but not so with Cordelia. Her love is boundless, but not expressible through flattery.
The issues that affected Emma in her day and the same issue that affect Cher in hers. Cher and Emma are both over confident in themselves, they misjudge others, and they experience the same types of problems in their romantic relationships. At the opening of Emma the narrator begins by explaining all of the wonderful qualities that Emma possesses. She is clever, intelligent, beautiful, and a good daughter and friend (Austen, 5). The opening scene of Clueless follows the same pattern.
She was generous, amiable, interesting; she was everything but prudent" [sic] (p. 4). Elinor saw this with concern, for she "possessed a strength of understanding, and coolness of judgment, which qualified her, though only nineteen, to be the counsellor of her mother, and enabled her frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Mrs Dashwood which must generally have led to imprudence. She had an excellent heart; - her disposition was affectionate, and her feelings were strong; but she knew how to govern them" [sic] (p. 3). The sisters also had different ideas of what to look for in a husband. Elinor was never specific on what she looked for in a suitor; h... ... middle of paper ... ...ndship, voluntarily to give her hand to another!"
Truth be told, I am a sucker when it comes to the “Knight in Shining Armor” who always is there to save the day.

This reassures my statement on how she is an excellent seamstress, a fact that I admire about her. Any woman that can handle herself is a woman that should be looked up to. In conclusion, my three favorite characters from The Canterbury Tales: The Prologue is the Knight, the Pardoner, and Wife Bath.
It is the love she shows that makes the reader love her as well. In Morrison's novel we were constantly shown the theme of love with Pilate given to show us the strongest and healthiest example of it. Pilate who lurked in the back of the reader's mind, who was most loved of all of the characters. She is considered a mystery to those inside and outside of the story, because of her perceptive ability and her lack of agenda. Pilate was the strongest of the characters, no passive woman as well.
Mr. Bennet was content that his daughters are happy. This story is a plain example that love can win after all, that you can follow your heart and it will take you through the right direction. Elizabeth teaches us that you can’t judge a book by its cover, because prejudging can make you miss wonderful opportunities and people. We live in a world full of pride and prejudice, but it depends on us if we want to go with the flow or live our lives following our hearts.
This opinion of hers is heightened even more when she meets Mr. Wickham for the first time.

Elizabeth’s role in Pride and Prejudice contains one of the largest lessons found in the book. The reader is able to see the fault of a prejudice nature and the folly it can lead to, but then see that nature be delivered to one that is not prejudice. Elizabeth’s growth draws a beautiful picture of admitting one’s faults and also waiting for true love.
