Pride and Predujice - Contrast
Discuss the ways contrast are used to define the characters in a novel you have studied. Jane Austin uses contrast extensively in the book, Pride and Prejudice. There is examples of it in the contrast between Darcy and Lizzie, one is a proud man, contrasted with the outer, who without intentionally mean or wanting to, is prejudiced to wards most. There is also another important contrast between Charlotte and Lizzie, on the one hand Lizzy is determined to marry for love, and love alone, but on the other hand, Charlotte will marry the next person who proposes, believing “happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance”. The third and final contrast I am going to speak about is the contrast between Mr. and Mrs. Bennett. The couple, who have no doubt been marries for many years always amaze me, how could two people, who occasionally hate each other with such a passion remain married all this time.

Bennet's urging and encouragement, and Mr. The best example of this is Lydia; Mrs. She is yet to find out how true charlottes words were. However perhaps the most defining moment in the character existence is at Rosing park where Darcy gives Lizzie the letter, explaining his feelings about Wickam, and his actions regarding Jane and Bingly. Bennet's objectiveness to his entire family, it is easy to see how she slipped off the rails. The contrast between the characters is used to define them quite brilliantly.
