Chapter 60

Professor Bradley Greenburg of Northeastern Illinois University provides in-depth summary and analysis of Chapter 60 of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice.

Pride and Prejudice | Chapter 60 (Volume 3, Chapter 18) | Summary



Elizabeth and Darcy talk excitedly about their courtship. They explore the ways that their relationship has grown and appreciate each other for having learned to fall in love. Elizabeth writes to her aunt to share her wonderful news. Mr. Bennet impishly writes to Mr. Collins, countering his last obnoxious letter with news of the impending marriage. Darcy writes to Lady Catherine, who is outraged, of course.


Characters' responses to the news of Elizabeth and Darcy's engagement are part of the pleasure in the novel's denouement. Each of the other players responds in ways true to the character that Austen has carefully developed in the novel.
