Pride and Prejudice Chapter 14 Summary

READ THE BOOK: Chapter 14
  • Mr. Collins thinks he's super lucky to have Lady Catherine as his patroness. She is a widow with a big estate and only one daughter.
  • Mr. Bennet thinks he's totally absurd, and he gets his kicks out of listening to him make a fool out of himself.
  • After dinner, Mr. Collins reads to the girls from a book of advice about how to be a proper woman (smile and shut up, basically).
  • Lydia, the youngest of the Bennet girls, is so not into it. Well, none of them are. But she actually shows it.
