Pride and Prejudice Story Notes

Chapter 1 o Mr. and Mrs. Bennet of the Longbourn estate. o Mrs. Bennet has been told that a "young man of large fortune from the north of England" is moving to Netherfield, an estate near theirs, and she has designs on marrying him to one of her daughters. o Mrs. Bennet says that Mr. Bennet must go and see Bingley, the new neighbor, "as soon as he comes," and that he should think of his daughters and what a good marriage it would be.

Chapter 2 o Elizabeth, as well as three of her four sisters, Kitty, Mary, and Lydia are briefly introduced in chapter two. o While in Chapter one Mr. Bennet teases his wife saying he will not visit Bingley as soon as he arrives, in Chapter two we learn that indeed "Mr. Bennet was among the earliest of those who waited on Mr. Bingley."

Chapter 3 o Bingley is invited to dinner when he returns Mr. Bennet's visit, but declines the offer, as he must go to town on business. o He returns in time for a ball at Sir William and Lady Lucas' (neighbors of the Bennet's), and brings his sisters and his friend, Mr. Darcy.

Chapter 4 o When Jane and Elizabeth are alone, Jane admits how much she admires Bingley, and that she finds his sisters, Miss Bingley and Mrs. Hurst, charming. o Elizabeth however, wonders at how her sister never finds fault with anybody, and how she can be "so honestly blind to the follies and nonsense of others."

Chapter 5 o Sir William and Lady Lucas are further introduced. They have many children, and their oldest daughter Charlotte, is a good friend of Elizabeth's. o The Miss Lucases and the Miss Bennets discuss the ball, dwelling much on the pride of Mr. Darcy.

Chapter 6 o The Bennet sisters get to know Miss Bingley and Mrs. Hurst more, and while Bingley's sisters would like to know Jane and Elizabeth better, they have no use for their mother or their two younger sisters. o Elizabeth tells Charlotte that she thinks it is good that Jane does not flaunt her good feelings for Bingley, and Charlotte says that she should show them more if she wishes anything to come of

Chapter 7 o Catherine and Lydia, the two youngest Bennet sisters often visit Mrs. Phillips in Meryton, as it is only one mile away. o From her they learn that a militia regiment is stationed in Meryton. Every day they learn more about the officers, and they soon become acquainted with some of them. Miss Bingley and Mrs. Hurst invite Jane to Netherfield for dinner.

Chapter 8 o The Bingley sisters abuse Elizabeth when she is not around for what they see as pride and a lack of manners. They feel sorry for Jane because of her family and its lack of connections to make her a good match.

Chapter 9 o Mrs. Bingley and her two youngest daughters come to Netherfield to visit Jane. Although she is now much better, it is decided that she should not be moved yet. o Lydia reminds Bingley that he said he would have a ball, and he agrees to have one when Jane is well.

Chapter 10 o Jane continues to get better and much of the day is spent in the drawing-room with reading, letter writing and music.

Chapter 11 o Jane is feeling better, and after dinner she comes into the drawing-room for a few hours where she and Bingley spend much time talking over by the fire.

Chapter 17 o The next day Elizabeth tells Jane all that Wickham has told her. o Jane feels that there must be some misunderstanding on some side, as it is impossible that any man of common humanity could treat his father's favorite in such a way. o Elizabeth still believes Wickham, and will wait until Darcy tells her different.
