in consequence of the missive, And his one real sin..., penned by Jim Morris
Darcy is emerging as an honourable man, and Wickham as dishonourable, very different from what might be previously thought if we had agreed with Eliz all along, and as she now realized -- "had his actions been what Wickham represented them, so gross a violation of everything right could hardly have been concealed from the world; and that friendship between a person capable of it, and such an amiable man as Mr. Bingley, was incomprehensible."
But Darcy was not faultless, just as Eliz was not faultless. His initial faults as seen by the local society before Wickham spread his lies -- being too proud and haughty, were his real faults. But those faults were not faults of principle, the proud Darcy was not an unprincipled, dishonourable man, just as the prejudiced Eliz was not an unprincipled, dishonourable woman.
