Introduction

Mrs. Bennet I am outraged! I cannot believe that girl. How dare she refuse such an offer from such an agreeable man? Handsome too, has good fortune, and acquainted with Lady Catherine de Bourgh. What on earth does she need more? That Lizzy, a real dimwit I tell you. Oh and Mr. Bennet, opposing my opinions in such a foul way, after three and twenty years of marriage. It is inconceivable. Wait a minute, I know, he's just... playing with my nerves. That must be it! Silly Mr. Bennet... He's already admitted that he loves doing so before. I am slyer than he thinks, not one of his old tricks can fool me. But I must admit, although his humor has proved to be of quite bad taste, I dare say, I do not think he would stoop to such ill measures. Oh dear Lord he would not! My devastation has blinded me as have the tears drowning my eyes: my husband has not played me. ...read more.

Middle

Collins... That girl, always feeling superiorly smarter than anyone. She should be honored by a proposal instead of declaring it preposterous. I have tried very hard to bring her to reason. She is too headstrongof a girl; and that is a flaw only few men are ready to accept. Poor, poor Mr. Collins, I could see the astonishment in his eyes, the quivering in his speech, the sweat on his body, the silence of his heart. If that daughter of mine continues to "go on refusing every marriage in this way" (if she has got any left to refuse) she "will never get a husband at all- and I am sure I do not know who is to maintain [her] when [her] father is dead- I shall not be able to keep" her. I have warned her so, but still, that stubborn girl continues her nonsense. I cannot tolerate this, I cannot bear it. An affair like this will not go on if there is anything I can do to stop it. ...read more.

Conclusion

I would not want him to think of me as desperate, for I am not. Never mind, it is hopeless! All is lost. There is nothing more I can do but sit and wait for fate to take its course. It is God's will: I must suffer. No, I will not. I will find a way to make this better before it is too late. If he does not marry Elizabeth, he will marry one of the Bennets. Perfect! No no no! I cannot bear to have my efforts and dreams ripped to pieces once again. I am too weak. It is over, I will not, for my own sake, continue to hope. All I can do now is sit here and sink into self-pity until the end of my days. Elizabeth will never get married. I bet she will even blame it on me, her meager mother, whilst all I ever do is try to help her. She ruins everything and I am the one to blame? Jane is my last hope and I shall do all in my power for her hand to be Bingley's. ...read more.
