Love Is Blind, and so Are We
"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
This was a 'proposal' from Darcy. Not very romantic, is it? Of course, Lizzy said no, which shattered the metaphoric values of the establishment. After many rude encounters, such as the absurd proposal above, Darcy gains personal insight, and destroys the image of the establishment by apologizing to Lizzy afterwards for his intrusive, barbaric behaviour. When making attempts to rekindle their would-be relationship, he risks losing her yet again as he shows his objection with her family which, ironically, triggers Elizabeth's analysis and gain of personal insight. After Darcy's reflection, he sends Elizabeth a letter: a metaphor for the high regard in which he holds her, and the insight which he gives her. This letter prompts her eventually to re-evaluate herself, and thus her opinion of Darcy, and realize that she's in love with him.
So kids, what's the moral of this story?
- Considerations about Shakespeares "Romeo and Juliet"
- Love Is Blind, and so Are We
- William Somerset Maugham "The Moon and the Sixpence"
