“Elizabeth, feeling rather anxious, was determined to go to her, though the carriage was not to be had; and as she was no horse-woman, walking was her only alternative. She declared her resolution.

‘How can you be so silly,’ cried her mother, ‘as to think of such a thing, in all this dirt! You will not be fit to be seen when you get there.’

‘I shall be very fit to see Jane — which is all I want.'”

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is my favorite book and since I have been participating in a read-a-long of the classic this month, I thought I’d spotlight it seeing as this is our final week reading it. This excerpt is taken from my annotated copy of P&P and is very telling of both Elizabeth’s and her mother’s characters. Elizabeth, upon hearing her sister has been taken ill, is determined to see her, and her mother is only concerned about how her daughter will look upon arrival.
