Chapter 61

Professor Bradley Greenburg of Northeastern Illinois University provides in-depth summary and analysis of Chapter 61 of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice.

Pride and Prejudice | Chapter 61 (Volume 3, Chapter 19) | Summary



As an epilogue, the final chapter wraps up loose ends. Jane and Bingley purchase a home near Pemberley, and the two eldest Bennet sisters visit each other often. Kitty visits them frequently, and her character improves under the influence of her two older sisters. Lydia and Wickham are unchanged, constantly asking for money from Lydia's family. Elizabeth also grows close to Georgianna Darcy. In general, the novel closes on a happy note.


Austen ends the novel with two happy marriages, assuring readers that love conquers all, including class differences, pride, and prejudice.
