COUPLES WHOSE LOVE REMINDS US OF ELIZABETH AND DARCY


(from Bookish)

In vain they struggled, but it wouldn’t do. Their feelings would not be repressed, and as readers, we eagerly read on as their love overcame them and finally culminated in a moment of passion and truth. It's hard to believe it's been over 200 years since the publication of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. In honor of this anniversary, allow us to share how ardently we admire and love these literary lovers who remind us of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.

1.Tiger Lily

Though Neverland is “the second star to the right and straight on til morning” from the world of the English aristocracy, the same difficulties of love exist. Like Lizzie, Peter is energetic, social, and doesn’t often take in evidence that shakes his view of the world. Tiger Lily shares Mr. Darcy's stoicism and aloofness. Competition between these couples is fierce, with Darcy and Lizzie trying to best each other through wit, while neither Peter nor Tiger Lily would stand to be second bravest. All four should have “stubborn” as their middle names.

2. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows

“It’s Wing-gar-dium Levi-o-sa, make the ‘gar’ nice and long.” Since the day they met, Ron and Hermione have been getting under each other’s skin. It took them six years to get it together, so that when they first kissed at the end of the final Harry Potter book, there was not a single person who didn’t shout, “Finally!” Not even Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth were that stubborn. It’s easy to imagine that if Lizzie was a witch, she’d have sent conjured canaries at Mr. Darcy’s head, too.


3. Emma

Pride and Prejudice isn’t Jane Austen’s only novel about a contentious and seemingly ill-fated couple. In Emma, when protagonist Emma Woodhouse decides she likes playing matchmaker, it is George Knightley who is her loudest critic. It isn’t until Emma’s close friend Harriet falls for George that Emma realizes her own true feelings for him. Emma may be breaking girl code, but, like Lizzie Bennett, she gets her man in the end. 

Have you got other couples to suggest? Who reminds you of Elizabeth and Darcy?

I would definitely say that Margaret and Mr. Thornton from North and South have a Darcy/Elizabeth relationship!!

I agree with you Kelli, though, in their case Margaret is the one who is prejudiced and snobs John Thornton at first. First impressions are wrong in their story too and it takes so long to Margaret to understand ... Good contribution, Kelli! Thanks a lot :-)
