Lecture 2 - Mr Darcy
- Customer Reviews (0)
The moment in the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice when Darcy emerges from a lake in a wet white shirt has been voted the favourite TV moment of all time! And it is not even in the novel! However, the vote served to confirm the incredible sexiness of Jane Austen’s Mr Darcy. What makes him so powerfully attractive? Is it because he rarely says a word? Is it his height, his estate, or something in his behaviour? And how does Jane Austen use the other men in the novel for comparison – the utterly foolish Mr Collins, sarcastic Mr Bennet, wicked Mr Wickham, and affable Mr Bingley? Join in an exploration of masculinity in Pride and Prejudice and delight in one of the sexiest men ever to grace the pages of a book.
