    Pride & Prejudice Chapter 13 - A Clergyman Calls

    Each week, Catherine reads through an annotated chapter of Pride & Prejudice and shares her thoughts with the interweb until it’s done. Or until she gets sick of Jane Austen. Whichever comes first. This week : Chapter 13.

    "I hate such false friends. Why could he not keep on quarelling with you, as his father did before him?"

    After some time recovering from a cold, both myself and Jane are back at the Bennet household, where no time is spared in turning the entirety of the family’s attention to the impending arrival of their cousin William Collins, clergyman and heir to the Bennet home ahead of Mr Bennet’s daughters.

    Naturally, Mrs Bennet isn't fond of the idea of her daughters mingling with the man destined to take their home, which is likely why her husband kept the letter from a man “whom [he] had never met” a secret when he received it a month ago and sent a reply two weeks ago.

    Upon hearing of this, she does her best to blame him for allowing his distant relation to be entitled to the family estate, but changes her tune when she looks at the letter. We go on a brief epistolary route, where Collins reveals his deep desire to patch up the disagreement between his father and Mr Bennet, likely something to do with the inheritance of the house. At some point, Bennet felt willing to give this man of the cloth a chance and can be expected at four in the afternoon.

    As they await his arrival, the family speculate on the nature of this man, so very eager to make amends with the family he has every intention of booting out once their father dies.

    Jane wishes to give him the benefit of the doubt for trying to extend the olive branch, whereas Lizzy finds his writing pompous, likely due to the repeated references to his good friend Lady Catherine, and Mary decides to analyse the quality of the letter as if it wasn’t an actual correspondence that could affect the trajectory of her life. Catherine and Mary couldn't care less about the letter as it was highly unlikely their guest would come in the red coat of the military, as all those of any interest these days to them did.

    Collins arrives on time and spends the first few hours in the company of the girls while Mr Bennet keeps quiet around the “tall, heavy looking man of five and twenty” at first. Following in the footsteps of so many men before him, he compliments Mrs Bennet for making such fine young ladies, and she does her best to nudge the topic towards the “grievous affair” that is his inheritance of the family home. He announces his intention to “admire” the girls of the house as a means of resolving that tricky matter, for reasons he will impart later on.

    For now, his admiration turns to everything around him on his way to dinner, from the halls to the furniture, quite possibly mentally rearranging his own furniture around the place ahead of time as far as Mrs Bennet is concerned.

    The chapter ends with him apologising as profusely as he can for daring to suggest that the Bennet sisters had to prepare dinner when they had a perfectly good chef in their employ. Not that Mrs Bennet was offended at all, but he is most eager to make a good impression on them.


    I already know what Collins has in mind for his visit, but I still think he’s being a bit much.

    I know it’s been a while, see my last post for context, but I’m hoping to finish the first “book” of P&P like this and take an official break before part two.

    It is nice to get a break from Darcy and Bingley for a few chapters

    In writing the above, I realised that I got Bingley and Bennet mixed up for the entirety of my article. That’ll teach me to finish things at 11pm.

    Thoughts? Feel free to give me feedback or recommendations based on this. I’m always happy to polish my knowledge. Come back next week for Chapter 14, when Collins’s master-plan unfolds.

    To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect.

    Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

    There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope.

    Baruch Spinoza

    yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.Bill Keane

    What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.Oscar Wilde

    You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life. – Joel Osteen

    Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’. – Audrey Hepburn Read

    Just because something isn’t happening for you right now doesn’t mean that it will never happen.

    Thinking abt how stressful it would be to wear all those pure white dresses in Austen has me thinking abt a P+P variation where Wickham does show up to the Netherfield ball and gets Lizzie alone in the garden and tries to Kiss Her With Tongue and Darcy comes to rescue her but at some point she gets knocked on her ass in the scuffle and when she escapes back to the ballroom thinking she's successfully evaded scandal, Charlotte is like "babe you gotta sit down NOW there are grass stains all down your back" which means, of course, RUMORS

    #i already have the confrontation written in my head. lizzie doesn't hear what darcy says to Wickham just sees him fix Wickham's collar and #give him an EXTREMELY sturdy pat on the shoulder after which Wickham gets the HELL out of dodge #and of course Misteh Dahcy has to MARRY lizzie to SAVE her REPUTATION #haven't decided what to do abt jane and bingley yet. would be funny if he still gets bingley to leave and lizzie assumes it's bc of her #only to find out later (via Caroline being a fake bitch) that it had nothing to do w her and was just Darcy being a meddler #at which point lizzie is like 'i see! i have married a horrid stinky bastard man :)' #but is also like. 'you will not see the wife touch her smell nor hear her. she will not perceive you even if you stand before her.' until he #apologises and fixes it. #pride and prejudice #jane austen extended universe #mr darcys dad jokes

    Jane Austen Birthday Party: Decorations

    Jane Austen Birthday Party: Decorations

    Party time! So I have been planning my Jane Austen 29th birthday party for a few years, and when the lockdowns happened last year I began to grow worried that I wouldn’t be able to have it. But we moved down a tier, so I decided to continue and we had such a wonderful time. So in my previous posts I went over the invitations, the prizes, and now I thought I would discuss the decorations. You…
