Here is a snippet from Wikipedia about Episode 2: A sycophantic clergyman named Mr William Collins visits his cousins, the Bennets. He is the entailed heir of their home, Longbourn, and decides to marry Elizabeth to keep the property in the family. On a walk to Meryton village, they meet members of the newly arrived militia, including a Mr. George Wickham. When Elizabeth witnesses Darcy’s resentment of Wickham, Wickham tells her how Darcy cheated him of his inheritance. Darcy surprises Elizabeth with a dance offer at a ball at Netherfield, which she grudgingly but politely accepts. Mr Collins proposes to Elizabeth the next day, but she resoundingly rejects him. While Mr and Mrs. Bennet disagree about Elizabeth’s decision, her close friend Charlotte Lucas invites Mr Collins to stay at Lucas Lodge.
I am pretty sure my second favorite character is Elizabeth Bennet – but again who wouldn’t love her! Here is a little bio on our dear sweet Elizabeth:
Elizabeth Darcy (née Elizabeth Bennet) is the protagonist in the 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She is often referred to asEliza or Lizzy by her friends and family. Elizabeth has been portrayed by Greer Garson in the 1940 film adaptation of the novel, by Elizabeth Garvie in the 1980 BBC mini-series, by Jennifer Ehle in the 1995 television series, by Keira Knightley in the 2005 film adaptation, and by Ashley Clements in the online modernized YouTube adaption.
Elizabeth is the second child in a family of five daughters. Though the circumstances of the time and environment require her to seek amarriage of convenience for economic security, Elizabeth wishes to marry for love.
Elizabeth is regarded as the most admirable and endearing of Austen’s heroines. She is considered one of the most beloved characters inBritish literature because of her complexity. Austen herself described Lizzy as “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.”
