|Who is Mr. Collins?||Who is Lady Catherine?|
The first view and the second view:
Before Mr.Collins went to The Bennet's, he was not a popular person that Mrs. Bennet wanted to visit, especially after Mr. Bennet told her that after he was dead, Mr. Collins could turn her and her daughters all out of their houseas soon as he pleased...etc. such jokking words. But after he really came to visit them, her thinking of Mr. Collins hasbeen changed. Especially after he told how beautiful her daughters were, how beautiful their house was, how delicious the food was , and so on, she began to like this young man. Well, you know that Mr. Bennet was such a woman that was pleased easily.
When Mr. Bennet got the letter that he wrote to him, he thought that this person was a nice man and he thought that his letter was a mixture of servility and self- importance. He was really wanted to see him. After Mr. Collins came, he still thought that he was a good man. But as time went by he was a little could not stand him and did not like him as more as before. Therefore, when Mrs. Bennet wanted him to force Lizzy to marry him, he told Lizzy, his favorite daughter, if shewould like to marry him, she could no longer call him, Father.
Jane always had no special commentaries to others, so when she heard the person , she said that" though it is difficult to guess in what way he can mean to make us the atonement he thinks our due, the wish is certainly to his credit. " But after Mr. Collins came, she still paid less attention on him.
Elizabeth did not think that he was a good, and nice person forom the beginning to the end when he left. And she also did not think tha he was a sensible person ,but a silly man, especially when they were in the party, he always wnated her to dance with him, but always could not dance well, when he knew that Mr. Darcy was Lady Catherine's cousin, he just busytalked and interduced himself to Mr. Darcy,he did not care Mr. Darcy's impatience with him, just talking talking and talking, and he could not understand that Elizabeth did not wnat to marry him. He always used his own thinking to think that everything should be like what he thought.
Other Bennet sisters were not interested in who he was orhow he was loked like,they paidmore attention on other handsome officers.For example, when Mr. Collins was just beginning to read a book, Ledia interrupted him at once. Mary, she just cared that how his letter, his composition was written, was it reasonble, or was the idea well expressed?
From Charlotte Lucas's view, although the book did not tell us that clearly, we know that she was a parctical woman,she just wnated to marry a rich man who had a steady jod and could give her save feelings, so maybe Mr. Collins was such a man inher point of view.
description in this book:
For Mr. Collins, she was a good,kind, and wounderfulwoman in the world. He never said ill behind her,but always a lot of compliments.
For Elizabeth, she did not think that she was such a good person that Mr. Collins said. She thought that she was a woman who just wanted to make friends with high class people and always looked down on thoes lower class people. She was a rich and very proud woman, and sometimes her pride made her unreasonible. She liked to control others.
She was a widow. She was referred to as"Lady" followed by her first name because she was the daughter of a higher nobleman.
For Mr. Wickham, here was his thinking of her:
" I believe her to be both in a great degree. I have not seen her for many years, but I very remember that I never liked her, and that her manners were dictatorial and insolent. She hasthe reputation of being remarkably sensible and clever; but I rather believe she drives part of her abilities from her rank and fortune, part from her authoritative manner, and the reat from the pride of her nephew, who chooses that everyone connected with himshould have an understanding of the first class."
For Mr. Darcy, I think that he did not like her, too because he felt angry and sorry for her wanting that Elizabeth should not marry him. Even he would rather not be her cousin just in order to marry Lizzy.
A fortunate chance had recommended him to Lady Catherine de Bourgh when the living of Hunsford was vacant; and the respect which he felt for her high rank, and his veneration for her as his patroness, mingling with a very good opinion of himself, of his authority as a clergyman, and his rights as a rector, made him altogether a mixture of pride and obsequiousness, self-importance and humanility.
