in consequence of the missive, miserly, penned by Nikki N
I always thought the elder Mr. C was miserly in feeling and affection for his son which made Mr. Collins the way he is....overly solicitous, apologetic, eager to seek approbation.
With his newly acquired wealth and status, modest as it is, Mr. Collins has also gained conceit and pomposity, but I think that basic feeling of inferiority and want of affection guide him to try to get on everyone's good side.
I feel sorry for him that even in his marriage he will not get the love or affection he so desperately desires. His character makes me sad....fortunately JA makes him so annoying it passes quickly.
