7. Themes, Allusions & Symbols

7.1. The theme in this is the same as any romantic story from the 1800's. The theme is that class, wealth, and reputation do not determine who you should care for, you should care for the people who's personality you care for. In other words its whats on the inside that counts.

7.2. There are many symbols such as class, dances, letters and reputation. They all are repeatedly placed in the story to convey that their parents are shallow and just care about reputation, class, and dances.

7.3. The family in Pride and Prejudice is basically just a giant stereotype of people in the 1800's. The parents just want the girls to get married, Jane is "perfect" and admired. Elizabeth is the stereotypical teen rebel. The younger sisters just want attention. Mr. Darcy is seemingly a bad character and then is revealed as the love interest. They are sort of just outlines of characters with names.
