Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice Chapter 2 Summary

  • Mr. Bennet is one of the first men in the area to visit Mr. Bingley, but he does it behind his wife's back and teases his wife and daughters before letting the cat out of the bag.
  • The news sends all the women into a tizzy. (That's the technical word for it.) When will Mr. Bingley return the visit? Should they ask him to dinner? What would they serve at dinner? Will he like their hats?
