I've been wondering if Pride and Prejudice was inspired by a relationship Jane Austen (or any of her acquaintances) had?
Aside from that, I've come across many character analysis websites, and almost all of them described Mrs Bennet as a "noisy, foolish and tiresome" character. Why is she portrayed that way despite her being the caring mom that worries about her daughters future?
I find Pride and Prejudice very interesting and fascinating. I would really appreciate answers to clarify things.
