  7. 7. Chapter IV A. Analysis <ul><li>Source Data Description </li></ul><ul><li>Novel Synopsis </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis Characterizations </li></ul><ul><li>Description of the Study Result: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Id (family background and the need of the survival) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ego (feelings of frustration and seeing through lies) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Superego (accepting the offer and happy marriage) </li></ul></ul>Lizzy Charlotte & Collins Jane Mary Kitty Lydia
  8. 8. Chapter IV B. Data Interpretation <ul><li>The combination of Darcy and Elizabeth is gave an obvious literary idealistic style. It is not difficult to find that their emotional entanglements are occurred between the “love need” and “self-esteem” from psychoanalysis, and eventually, love harvests its fruit from mutual respect–marriage. Although the “ego” seems pitiful under the harsh conditions of the “id” and under the abusive practices of the super-ego seems pitiful, but the awareness of the “id” that is the need to survive, and super-consciousness of love, finally has to be reflected through rationality and the good quality. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Chapter V Conclusion & Suggestion <ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Austen describes Elizabeth Bennet’s character successfully which is very different from other figures in literature and Freud’s psychoanalysis helps me in analyzing aspects of the personality of Elizabeth Bennet. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Suggestion </li></ul>Georgiana Darcy
