    "First Impressions‚" but later changed it to "Pride and Prejudice." Nonetheless‚ the title still goes off that premise. Both Darcy and Elizabeth are "pride" and "prejudice‚" because their entire relationship throughout the novel is marked by their "pride" and "prejudice." Now that I think about it‚ that may have been why she decided to change the title. It’s not just their first impressions of each other‚ but instead‚ about the "pride" and "prejudice" they constantly have and must get over in order

    of the title‚ in the literary terms is that this is alliteration. Pride and Prejudice is an example of Jane Austen’s use of alliteration.

    Pride and Prejudice The first line of Pride and Prejudice reveals that a man who has money desires a wife.

    Jane Austen‚ Pride & Prejudice Personal opinion: I think the narrative style of the book is very old-fashioned‚ but it is because of that I get the feeling of being in that particular time with the characters. The story is not very exciting to my opinion; because as soon as the most important characters meet each other at the first ball‚ it is very obvious they will be together at the end of the story. Several people told me the book was very boring and longwinded but I disagree. Although the
