feelings towards Darcy? Why does her opinion alter.
Pride & Prejudice
How does the visit to Pemberley affect Elizabeth's feelings towards
Darcy? Why does her opinion alter after this encounter?
We have seen through the books chorus that Elizabeth doesn't care
about wealth, she rather wants to marry for love then money (She
denies Darcy when he first proposed, and she sees Mr.Wickham as an
good man even though he cannot offer her wealth) but all that changes
for her and for us after the Pemberley visit. She sees this beautiful
mansion, she sees opportunity and freedom in Pemberley. The house
itself is reprehensive and even a symbol for Mr. Darcy, the writes
describes it as a "...It was a large, handsome stone building,
standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody
hills; and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled
into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were
neither formal nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. .. and at
that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be
something!" The inscription fits on Darcy, he too is tall, handsome
man, and that the house is "standing well on rising ground", reminds
me of Darcy's pride. And Elizabeth falls in love with the house, she
can see herself as the mistress of Pemberley "And of this place,
thought she, I might have been mistress", meaning that she approves
Mr. Darcy’s personality.
And the housekeeper of Pemberley speaks so well of Mr. Darcy, "But I
have always observed, that they who are good-natured when children,
are good-natured when they grow up,and he was always the
sweetest-tempered, most genero...

family, she is ashamed of them but she would never admit it in public.
Jane Austen tried to resolve it by in the end have a happy ending,
Jane is married to Bingley and Elizabeth to Darcy. Somehow she wants
to say that there is no wrong in taking someone from a low class and
they can be as elegant as those that are born rich. By making Darcy
marry Elizabeth, Elizabeth which he thought to be classless from the
begging, and now is one of the most beloved person in his life changes
so much. And in the end Darcy says that Elizabeth made him to the
person he is today, Darcy starts to understand that the way he acted
was in a bad manner way and he starts to understand and respect
Elizabeth for telling him the truth. I think that Jane Austen shows
that if we look really well, class status is not such a big deal, that
in the end depend on how the person is.
