Perspective and Narrator:
Pride and Prejudice has a third-person omniscient narrator. Austen often employs a narrative technique called free indirect discourse, in which the line between the narrator's and the characters' voices seems to blur, giving deep insight into characters' inner thoughts.
Pride and Prejudice is told primarily in the past tense.
About the Title:
The title alludes to two traits demonstrated by the main characters, Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. Darcy's superior manner and Elizabeth's initial judgments about his character lead to misunderstandings, open conflict, and, eventually, reconciliation.
