Pride and Prejudice: Marriage
Essay written by Maria Engstrom
For this essay, I chose to read the perhaps most famous book by the English author Jane Austen.
During the reading I was thinking about which theme I should choose to write about and analyze, and
eventually I felt that marriage was the central keyword in the book. I will concentrate on the situation
of the daughters in the family, since these are the best

goal for them. Though this is the general atmosphere in the novel, I would like to end my essay with
the words of Mr. Bennet to his daughter Elizabeth on her accepting Mr. Darcy's proposal, which stand
like an anti-thesis of the otherwise general view of the perfect marriage:
"He is rich, to be sure, and you may have more fine clothes and fine carriages than Jane. But will
they make you happy?"
