Pride and Prejudice: Literary Terms

Basic objective of this lecture is to present on Pride and Prejudice: Literary Terms. Some literary terms are: Protagonist – the chief character in the novel, now almost synonymous with ‘hero’ or ‘heroine’, who may be locked in a struggle with the antagonist. Antagonist – the opponent of the protagonist, the chief character in the novel, where two figures are engaged in a struggle with each other. Caricature – a grotesque or ludicrous rendering of a character, achieved by the exaggeration of personality traits.
