in consequence of the missive, Lizzy's prejudices...?, penned by MelanieB
I wonder how much of Elizabeth's intense dislike of Mr. Collins arises from him having proposed to her. Before that occured, she could only view him as a pompous nitwit. He was amusing, inclining towards annoying after prolonged doses, but not especially terrible.
After his proposal I belived she would find it difficult to everthink of him without imagining, "I could be the one married to him!"
It adds a sort of "Ewwww Factor" to her viewpoint.
