Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice Chapter 29 Summary

  • Mr. Collins is super excited that the visitors will be able to see the splendor of his benefactress's estate.
  • Well, it's definitely splendid. The people aren't much to speak of: Lady Catherine is authoritative and snobby. Her daughter is thin, small, and sickly.
  • Lady Catherine is also, how do you say it, a total bore. She talks about everything from melons to cows, and she doesn't stop.
  • She grills Lizzy about her family and lectures Elizabeth for never having a governess, as if it were her fault for having negligent parents, or something.
