Hello North House!
For this week’s blog assignment I decided to stay along the path of Pride and Prejudice and take a look into some of the major themes of the story as we continue to read the book. Two revolving themes that have stood out to me so far are the themes of “money” and “class”. They play an important role in the context of the novel and cannot be missed. There is a clear distinction between the Bennet and the Bingley family and friends in terms of financial stability along with the differences of personalities they each portray.
To involve both the story and possibly help with your own futures, the short video you will be watching goes over five differences between the wealthy and the poor. If you wanted to learn about the last five that video fails to mention, here’s the article that completes the list. I found it interesting how being either one of the two (wealthy or poor) is a “choice” that we personally make. Are our own actions and mindsets interfering with us becoming wealthy? Is it really that easy?
Prompt: Do any of these descriptions match with the characters in Pride and Prejudice? If so, who? What are your thoughts on these comparisons? Do you agree with them? Disagree? Explain.
