Notes for Pride and Prejudice Paper: Mr. Bennet: “You take delight in vexing me [Mrs. Bennet]” (4) “Mr. Bennet was an odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice” (4) “They attacked him in various ways-with barefaced questions, ingenious suppositions, and distant surmises; but he eluded the skill of them all” (7) “on the present occasion he had a good deal of curiosity as to the event of an evening which had raised such splendid expectations” (10) “If my children are silly, I must hope to be always sensible of it” (22) “After amusing himself some time with their curiosity” (46) “His cousin was as absurd as he had hoped, and he listened to him with the keenest enjoyment, maintaining at the same time the most resolute composure of countenance, and, except in an occasional glance at Elizabeth, requiring no partner in his pleasure” (51) “at the request of Mr. Bennet, who was most anxious to get rid of him, and have his library to himself” (53) “In his library he had always been sure of leisure and tranquility; and though prepared, as he told Elizabeth, to meet with folly and conceit in every other room in the house, he was used to be free from them there” (53) “Many stared—many smiled; but no one looked more amused than Mr. Bennet himself” (76) “Mr. Bennet, in equal silence, was enjoying the scene” after the Netherfield ball (77) “Mr. Bennet raised his eyes from his book as she entered, and fixed them on her face with a calm unconcern which was not in the least altered by her communication” (83) “‘My dear,’ replied her husband, ‘I have two small favours to request. First, that you will allow me the free use of my understanding on the present occasion; and secondly, of my room. I shall be glad to have the library to myself as soon as may be” (83) “Mr. Bennet’s emotions were much more tranquil on the occasion, and such as he did experience he pronounced to be of a most agreeable sort; for it gratified him, he said, to discover that Charlotte Lucas, whom he had been used to think tolerably sensible, was as foolish as his wife, and more foolish than his daughter” (95) “Neither could anything be urged against my father, who, though with some peculiarities, has abilities which Mr. Darcy himself need not disdain, and respectability which he will probably never reach” (136) “Her father, contented with laughing at them, would never exert himself to restrain the wild giddiness of his youngest daughters” (155) “her father had not the smallest intention of yielding; but his answers were at the same time so vague and equivocal, that her mother, though often disheartened, had never yet despaired of succeeding at last” (161)
