Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice Chapter 28 Summary

  • Elizabeth and the Lucases arrive in Hunsford. Mr. Collins takes care to point out every lovely thing in his home, to really give Elizabeth the chance to regret that it's not hers.
  • It doesn't exactly work.
  • Charlotte takes her around the house and Elizabeth can tell that her friend actually likes her life. Particularly when she can forget that Mr. Collins is part of it.
  • The next day, Elizabeth sees Miss de Bourgh, Lady Catherine's daughter. She looks "sickly and cross" (28.18). Perfect for Mr. Darcy!
  • Charlotte lets them know that Miss de Bourgh has invited them all to dine at Rosings Park, the de Bourgh estate, the next day.
