Fitzwilliam Darcy is a attractive
man with tall figure, handsome features, noble behaviour, and a
large property. He is well-educated, and he likes
to read books, so he collectes many books in his family library. When reading,
he concentrates his attention on books and tries to gain information and
knowledge from them. He dislikes to speak much unless among his intimate
friends. With them he is remarkably agreeable. Because of his ability and
great accomplication, hi is very self-confident and proud of himself. His
attitude makes others feel he is a arrogant and haughty person, so people
don't mow him well are disgusted with his pride and saying nothing
good about him. But actually he is liberal and generous. Giving his money
to assist his tenants and relieve the poor. In addition, he takes care
of his sister considerately.
Also, he understands himself
well, knowing his advantages and disadvantages clearly, and always presents
his nature. He admit his bad temper. And he can't forget the follies and
vices of others, so he has prejudice for who offenses against him.(p40)
So he is a honest man, never being hypocritical and saying something false
to flatter others or trying to make any pretension. He must treat his friends
honestly because he hates disguise of every sort. His cool appearance is
People's first impression
of Mr. Darcy was that he was a good-looking and rich man, but too cool
and arrogant. Because he was haughty and fastidious, and his impolite manners,
was not inviting though he was clever and well-educated. Nobody liked him.
Mrs. Bent hated him very much because he had slighted her daughter, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth disliked Mr. Darcy for his arrogance, his conceit, and his selfish
disdain of the feeling of others from the very beginning. And then, she
had prejudice against Mr. Darcy and regarded everything he did was make
fun of her. Most people had bad first impression of Mr. Darcy.
At the first ball, Mr. Darcy
didn't want to dance with strangers, so he just kept standing. When Mr.
Bingley came to ask him to invite Elizabeth, who sat behind him at that
time. But he thought that Elizabeth was not beautiful enough to attempt
him, and he didn't want to a young lady slighted by other men. That was
his first impression of Elizabeth.(p9) His had his pride so he didn't invite
a lady unsuitable.
When they next met,
Mr. Darcy found that she had a hardly a good feature in her face, and it
was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her
dark eyes. And he was forced to acknowledge her figure to be light and
pleasing. He stated to be attracted to Elizabeth and changed his impression
of her. From the moment, he thought she was very beautiful and sttractive,
and he wanted to know more of her, so he would attend to her conversation
with others.(p16) And then, Elizabeth was the mostt beautiful lady in his
mind, no matter what she did.
