2.       Chapters 46-50.  Describe Mr. Bennet’s handling of Lydia’s situation from the time she wishes to go to Brighton, to his present handling (or, non-handling) of the present crisis.  How does Mrs. Bennet respond to each turn of events?

3.       Chapters 53-54.  Much is going on behind the scenes here.  Who knows what other characters don’t, and how does that make otherwise mundane comments/actions interesting?

4.       Chapter 55.  We finally hear the authoritative account of how Jane’s outward reserve affected Bingley.  Does it seem that on this one point, Charlotte Lucas was right?

5.       Trace the speculations going on about a possible courtship between Elizabeth and Darcy.

a.       When mentioned by Mrs. Gardiner.

1.       Chapter 24.  Now, it is Jane’s and Elizabeth’s turn to share views on marriage and discuss Charlotte Lucas’ choice in her absence.  How does this compare with the Chapter 6 conversation between Elizabeth and Charlotte?

2.       Chapter 29.  We finally get a long look at Lady Catherine De Bourgh.  What fun Jane Austen must have had penning her!  How is Jane Austen successful in “showing” Lady Catherine’s character, not just telling us about her?  (Mannerisms, how she carries herself, the effect she has on others present…)

3.       Chapter 30-31.  Elizabeth and Darcy meet again, but this time in the home of his relative, Lady Catherine De Bourgh.  How are things different here than in previous settings:  at the first dance where they met (Ch. 3), at Bingley’s house (Jane’s illness), or at the second ball where they danced and conversed?

4.       Chapter 33.  Why does Elizabeth think that Darcy interfered with Bingley’s pursuit of Jane?

5.       Chapter 34.  Compare the two unwanted proposals that Elizabeth has received so far.

6.       Chapter 35 and on.  What is the initial effect of Darcy’s letter on Elizabeth?  How does her response to it evolve?

7.       Look up Provers 9:13 and Proverbs 7:11.  How does Lydia Bennet fit these descriptions?  How do her sisters perceive her actions?  Her father?  Her mother?  Outsiders (like Darcy)?

8.       Chapter 43.  How does visiting Pemberley affect Elizabeth?  How about the description of Darcy and Wickham by his housekeeper?

9.       Chapter 45.  What effect did Caroline Bingley intend when she mentioned the departure of the regiment from Hartfordshire as a loss to the Bennet family?  What effect did it have on Darcy?

·         Answer the questions below.  Read through them before you start reading and answer them as you read.

1.       In the first chapter, we are introduced to the Bennet family.  What do we know about their characters from reading only chapter 1?  (Try not to be influenced by the movie, if you’ve seen it, or even the rest of the book if you’ve read the whole thing.)

2.       Chapters 1-3.  Describe the dynamics between Mr. Bennet and his other family members.

3.       Chapter 3.  Enter Fitzwilliam Darcy, stage right.  What kind of first impression does he make, and is all the given information about him consistent?

4.       Chapter 6.  Contrast Charlotte’s and Elizabeth’s views on marriage.  They both give their ideas on making a good match, and critique Jane’s outward reserve toward Bingley.  Is there foreshadowing going on here?  If so, what does it lead the reader to expect?

5.       Chapters 7-12.  Jane’s illness at Netherfield gives the reader an opportunity to see the main characters (and the minor but equally amusing ones) interact in close quarters.  Describe the dynamic between:

a.       Elizabeth and Darcy

b.      Caroline and Darcy

c.       Caroline and Elizabeth

6.       How does the character of Mr. Collins develop from his initial letter to the Bennets, to his inclination to Jane, to his proposal to Elizabeth, and finally, to his acceptance by Charlotte?

7.       Now that you’ve read through the first third of the book, categorize as many characters as you can as either dynamic or static, round or flat.

8.       How would you categorize the plot of this novel?

a.       man vs. man

b.      man vs. nature

c.       man vs. himself

d.      man vs. a higher power
