As for specific quites where Lizzy sees herself inferior... I guess I am not choosing my words carefully... I think she is in awe of Darcy (I assume because of his greatness)... Quotes: "Mrs Hurst sang with her sister, and while they were thus employed Elizabeth could not help observing as she turned over some music books that lay on the instrument, how frequently Mr. Darcy's eyes were fixed on her. She hardly knew how to suppose that she could be the object of admiration to so great a man; and yet that he should look at her because he disliked her, was still more strange."
Quote: "Elizabeth made no answer, and took her place in the set, amazed at the dignity to which she was arrived in being allowed to stand opposite to Mr. Darcy, ..."
As for her treatment of Mr. Collins and the others, I guess it is more the way she thinks of Mr. Collins and the others that gave me the impression. I think perhaps I ascribed too many of the narrator's descriptions to Lizzy...
I do however believe that Lizzy is proud and rightly so. I don't find pride to be a fault. She is sure of herself and she believes in her judgement. Wrong though it may be at times.
But I stand corrected. Thanks kathi, for probing.
