First Impressions Can Last Forever
In Various works of literature, marriage is a major focus in relation to the theme. In the novel Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, marriage is an important role in relation to the different themes. The relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth was based on first impressions that were solely not true. Inside they loved each other, but Darcy?s pride and Elizabeth?s prejudice caused issues with them ever getting married.
The pride that Darcy demonstrated was nothing compared to the first impressions on himself. The ladies though highly of Darcy, up until he began to speak. Austen writes,
“The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he
was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which tuned the tide of his popularity; for he as discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared with his friend” (58).
