Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Protagonist

Character Role Analysis

Elizabeth Bennet

Sure, Mr. Darcy goes through an equal or (maybe even greater) journey of character development, but the novel follows Elizabeth's thoughts, not Darcy's. We don't learn about Darcy's true character until Elizabeth does—and we watch her character struggle with the information and become much more open-minded.
