Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice Chapter 15
Pride and Prejudice Chapters 15-21 Summary
Collins was an ignorant man, raised by an illiterate father. His university education did not expand his mind. His conceit came from being weak-minded and achieving prosperity very young. He plans to marry one of the Bennet daughters as part of his reconciliation with the family. He decides on Jane until Mrs. Bennet tells him that she already has another suitor.
All rights reserved. Now that Mr. Collins has a good house and a good income, it's time to marry. His plan is to choose one of the Bennet daughters, which is his method of "atoning" for inheriting their father's estate. We have to say, it's actually kind of a nice gesture—he just picked the wrong daughter. He is interested in Jane at first, but Mrs. Bingley is way more eligible , and he quickly switches his affections to Elizabeth.
