jyotisingh099, December 21, 2008 (view all comments by jyotisingh099)
pride and prejudice as a novel set in the backdrop of eighteenth century provincial england discusses through its characters a variety of issues of common interest.the novel has been critiqued to expose only a limited purview concerning marriage and class and their resultant commotion in the domestic sphere.jane austen through the novel is to an extent successful in drawing a caricature of the importance of marriage.the female characters of the novel are shown busy interpreting their ideas of ideal courtship and marriage discussing marriage of convinience, compatibility ,companionate etc.the male characters of austen's novel acquire the mere positions as the rightful property for marriage and are talked in terms of eligible bachelor.their is a significant space in the novel where the novelist enjoys the luxury to comment on the class structure of the then society.the upper class tends to carry a proud status of being born high which is desirable by the commoner .the protagonist of the novel elizabeth bennet however displays the character of a modern bourgeios woman intelligent ,witty and understanding who celebrates the pride of her individuality whereas the central male character intially depicted as a highly disaggreable man develops as a perfectly suitable match for elizabeth by justifying his conducts.but the sad part is that jane austen is herself unable to aviod describing the commodification of women in the marriage market.though she makes an effort to show companionate marriage as the highest form of union between two individuals but unconsciously hints at the fact that marriage is the only alternative available to women for upward social mobility.
