“Analyzing a Character’s Pride and Prejudice”

Students will select a character from the novel Pride and Prejudice and create a character analysis.

Choose a character from the novel and create a character analysis, gathering objects, printouts, quotes, and facts about your character. Display the items in a way that represents the novel and/or your chosen character. For example, you might store your items in an old hat that is decorated to look like it is from the Regency era, or inside a shoe box that is designed as an instructional book on etiquette. You might attach your items to poster board that is cut in the shape of a dress from the period. Use your imagination and think symbolically. With each choice and addition to your analysis, strive to show the connection between the character’s attributes and the theme of Pride and Prejudice.

Follow these steps to create your character analysis:

  • Create or select a picture of your character.
  • Include at least one quote from the novel that adequately summarizes your character.
  • Describe in bulleted, briefly summarized points your character’s beliefs on money, marriage, and society.
