188.8.131.52 He is treating the marriage like a contract and
shows no signs of emotions or feeling. Instead, he
only talks about how mis marraige would benefit
the people in his community. This suggests that his
marriage is only to raise his popularity/status
among the community.

society. He is seen as an egomaniac and selfish, so his portrayal of a

relationship with each other (romantic love). The use of letters
highlights to the audience that Austen believes more into
romantic love and the actions that a man does to show his
love for the woman.
3.6 Mr Darcy is quite private and sending letters allows him and Lizzie
to 'talk' in private without the others knowing. Furthermore, it
would be easier for them to communicate in private more easily
through letters as men and female were not allowed to be alone

again, in a way as the play ends in a
somewhat happy manner because the two
opposing families reuinite, like she wanted.
