Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennet

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennet

Elizabeth "Lizzie" Bennet is the protagonist of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice. She is unconventional because she refuses to submit to expectations of British high society. Whereas her mother urges her to marry, Elizabeth feels perfectly capable on her own, and much rather prefers the company of her eldest sister, Jane. Although she is playful and good natured, her judgmental attitude gets the best of her, as seen by a strong dislike of Mr. Darcy. In the end, Elizabeth learns not to hold initial prejudices because people's real character can surprise her. This realization leads to an reconsideration of Darcy's proposal, and the two get happily married. In the 2005 film adaptation, famous actress Keira Knightley plays Elizabeth.
