Collins Snr. is sounding worse than the son! I've always regarded that pompous oddity Mr Collins as ignorant, foolish yet not a cruel man. I'm getting the impression his father was very mean and stinging. Although genteel, I feel he wouldn't come to better terms with Mr Bennet on the entail because he was not a better sort of man. I also take 'illiterate' to mean Collins Snr. knew letters but didn't go to university. ...Yet after such a childhood, Mr Collins,jnr seeks out another authoritarian figure to tell him what to do.
