Sentences from the book Pride and Prejudice
Seeing no reason for Elizabeth to continue this uncertainty, Elizabeth dared to walk with Mr. Darcy again as soon as she left. Now it was time to implement his decision. He dared himself and said: Mr. Darcy, I am a completely selfish person.

To calm my feelings, I do not think that your feelings may be hurt. I can not help but thank you for the extraordinary love you have shown me for my poor sister.

Ever since I found out, I have always wanted to tell you how grateful I am. If the rest of the family knew, I would not be the only one thanking them now.
Darcy replied excitedly and in surprise: “I’m sorry, I’m very sorry that you are aware of something that, if not conveyed to you correctly, will probably upset you.”
I never thought Ms. Gardiner would be so unreliable. My uncle’s wife is not to blame. Lydia’s distraction made me realize that you were involved. Well, I could not rest until the details were clear to me. Let me thank you many times.

Thank you on behalf of all my family members, for your vision and love for your hard work and perseverance in finding them.

Critique of the romance novel Pride and Prejudice
The novel “Pride and Prejudice”, known in Iran as Pride and Prejudice, is the work of Jane Austen, a classic English writer, published in England in 1813. This is Jane Austen’s second published novel, following the success of her first novel, Sense and Sensitivity.

Pride and Prejudice were accepted by the general public and over time became one of the best novels in world literature.

The novel was considered Austin’s fame as a writer, although none of his novels were initially published directly under his name. Writing was not a good profession for a woman, so Jane Austen’s first novel, “By a Lady,” was published. But in later novels, Austin published books under his own name.
Pride and Prejudice became one of the most popular English-language novels of all time. While some critics have argued that the book lacks realism, others welcome the novel’s feminist discourse on women’s education and financial dependence.

Although arrogance and prejudice have been criticized for the lack of a historical background, the presence of its characters in a social bubble that seldom permeates events beyond it is an accurate picture of the enclosed social world in which Austin lived.

One of the most famous lines of literature is the opening of the subject of marriage as the most important social concern of Britain at that time, which Jane Austen describes well.
In addition, the claim that a rich man should look for a woman shows how important and serious it has been for women to marry rich men. At the time of Austin, women had no other means of support.
Austin’s writing style was often and widely imitated by writers. He has used the style of “free indirect discourse” to tell his story. Although the narrator is not portrayed directly, it can be said that these are Elizabeth’s ideas, which are in stark contrast to the third-person narrative style. The narrator’s tendency to present Elizabeth’s views as conclusive allows the reader to mistakenly accept Wickham as trusting and judging Darcy as much as Elizabeth wants.

Elizabeth’s authority to flow the story and free indirect discourse allows Austin to examine the thoughts of other characters. Although the narrator focuses mainly on Elizabeth’s experiences and opinions, Austin’s choice of perspective and writing style makes the characters morally well-constructed and their relationship to the world around them.
