No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy, would have supposed her born to be an heroine.
-Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen
“He’s rather heartbreaking, Darcy. They say Darcy is haughty and arrogant, but that comes from vulnerability, from thinking very deeply about things and not being able to be relaxed. In those days Mr. and Mrs. Bennet were totally naff, and nowadays they think, `oh, what a snob !´, but in those days he wasn’t being a snob. He was being honourable.To somebody like Darcy it would have been a big deal for him to get over this difference in their status and to be able to say to Lizzie that he loved her.”
I sympathise with Mr. Darcy because he’s not a social person at all. He doesn’t know how to keep a proper conversation and he is very awkward in social interactions. However, he is much more confident in the written medium -his letter to Elizabeth is by far the best on the book and it actually gets her to fall in love with him. I liked to see that such a flawed character still had many virtues and managed to succeed in his life.
