    The Whole Duty of a Woman, That certainly rectified all the disadvantages, right? Since the shire were first quartered in Meryton, nothing but love, flirtation, and officers have been in her head. In society so superior to what she had generally known, her improvement was great. Mary does not appear often in the novel. Shoemaker, Examining diaries and other personal documents of the period suggests that middle and upper class marriages were also often warm and affectionate also, even on occasion blossoming into love. Prochaska, F.

    While she and Lydia have a number of similar interests, Kitty is weak-minded, lacking in resolve, and simply lacks Lydia's 'spark', spunk and motivation, always seeming to be 'luckless' and one step behind her. As Anna Quindlen wrote, Jane is "sugar to Elizabeth's lemonade". Bennet married her quickly, discovering too late that she was stupid, narrow-minded and shallow. Bennet's first cousin once removed.

    If, before Mr. While Mary is not what one would call introspective, she is not what one would call extrospective, either ; she is socially awkward, lacking any real social graces or observations about herself or others. Bennet, Esquirethe patriarch of the now-dwindling Bennet family a family of Hertfordshire landed gentry is a late-middle-aged landed gentleman of modest income. In12 times more boys than girls took computer studies at A-level. Kitty is often on the short side of the proverbial stick as she does not have much of her mother's favour after Lydia and Jane, or her father's after Elizabeth and Janeand also a "silly" young woman. Next she values her eldest, Jane, though only for Jane's great physical beautyand never considers Jane's feelings, virtueor reputation.

Everyone benefits. Didactic and moralistic, Mary constantly recites awkward interpretations of what are supposed to be profound observations about human nature and life in general from her books, declaring them to be "[her] observations", unable to discern where different books by different authors contradict one anotherand is totally unable to think critically about her books, giving them more benefit than people.

Today, they would be considered foolish and incredibly sexist, but some tactics back then may have been useful in obtaining a husband. But, because Mrs. Although Lydia could have looked at a conduct book or two, Austen is implying that conduct books are ridiculous because not all women are the same; they have different interests and hobbies and may not want to conform to what the conduct books preach.

Longbourn House also has an entailment upon it, meant to keep the estate in the sole possession of the family, down the male lineand from being divided-off amongst younger sons and any daughters; it is to passed-down amongst male heirs only. Following her marriage, her ascension to the ranks of the gentry has given her an inflated sense of entitlement.

Bennet openly mocks Charlotte Lucas when she is forced to go into the kitchen in order to supervise the tarts making, proudly saying that her "daughters are brought up differently"; also, she reacts with force when Mr Collins, on the day of his arrival, assumed that his cousins took part in the preparation of dinner.

Kitty is often on the short side of the proverbial stick as she does not have much of her mother's favour after Lydia and Jane, or her father's after Elizabeth and Janeand also a "silly" young woman.
