Pride and Prejudice Chapter 9 Summary

  • The next morning, Mrs. Bennet and the doctor Mr. Jones arrive. They decide that Jane isn't in real danger, but she'd still better stay at Netherfield.
  • Everyone congregates in the breakfast parlour, and it's immediately embarrassing.
  • Elizabeth tries to save her mother from her own foolish talk, but Mrs. Bennet just makes a fool of herself.
  • When the Bennets leave to go to Jane's room, the Bingley women start to gossip about them, but Mr. Darcy miraculously holds back.
