Pride and Prejudice | Chapter 2 (Volume 1, Chapter 2) | Summary

Share

Summary

Mr. Bennet teases his family but ultimately reveals that he has indeed already called on their new neighbor. Mrs. Bennet and her daughters engage in some light bantering about which of the sisters will be Bingley's favorite. Mrs. Bennet begins excitedly plotting Mr. Bingley's future visits to Longbourn.

Analysis

The conversation between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet confirms that he enjoys being an irritant, pretending he hasn't visited Mr. Bingley when he has. This chapter, like the last one, also reflects the importance Mrs. Bennet places on following the rules of etiquette. Now that Mr. Bennet has introduced himself to Mr. Bingley, the daughters are one step closer to an introduction as well—a key step in Mrs. Bennet's master plan to marry one of her daughters to him.
