How Contrasting Places Contribute to Theme Many times in life a person will feel awkward or insecure in a strange environment At home one may feel comfortable and relaxed This brings about the phrase home sweet home This same idea helps contribute to the central meaning of Jane Austens work Pride and Prejudice The two establishments of Netherfield and Pemberley are as different as night and day in the way they bring out the attitudes and actions of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet In Netherfield it is evident that pride is part of Mr Darcys nature and is seen in his mannerisms and in his speech Darcy has such a high opinion of himself that he does not care what other think of him or his prideful actions He believes that he is the best in every way possible and finds that his standing in society gives him the right to be critical of those not as perfect as he is For example while staying at Netherfield Mr Darcy attends the ball in Meryton where he walks about the room by himself and speaks occasionally to one of his own party He makes no attempt at being friendly or becoming acquainted with anyone His character is decided as being the proudest most disagreeable man in the world and everybody hoped that he would never come their again This is the same type of attitude and pride that possesses Mr Darcy for the remainder of the time that he spends at Netherfield On the other hand Mr Darcy acts with a certain sense of perfect civility friendliness and attentiveness when he is at Pemberley his home He seems more relaxed and acts without the feeling of improper pride that he had previously possessed For instance Darcy invites Mr Gardiner with the greatest civility to fish at Pemberley as often as he chose Darcy even suggests that he could supply him with fishing tackle
