Jane Austen's early novels are a comic portrait of characters and society. Pride and Prejudice depicts late 18th-, early 19th-century England where the social class system was very rigid. Behavior was very important, especially for women who were hoping to find a husband, and having good behavior meant sticking to the right manners and right forms of address. Everyone watched everyone else and noted even tache slightest changes in mannerism, so it was very important to use the right manners all the time. This applied to women much more than to men.
The main heroine, Elizabeth, is witty, educated, intelligent, and capable of much more than being polite, having a decent face expression, and moving gracefully. However, living in the 19th century, her choices in life are very limited.
