Summary

Elizabeth says good-bye to Charlotte and Mr. Collins. Then she and Maria travel to the Gardiners' home in London for a few days en route to Longbourn. Jane joins the women for the trip back home.

Analysis

This chapter serves as a transitional phase until the time that Elizabeth can share with Jane what has happened. In bidding farewell to Mr. Collins, Elizabeth demonstrates her tactfulness—striking a balance between the fake flattery of people like Collins and the abrupt manner of people like Darcy.
