Re: The importance of Mr Bennet and Mr Collins....

Aside from the fact that she uses both characters for comedic purposes, the difference between the two men is that Mr. Bennet has the brains to recognize his own failings and flaws, even though he does not correct them like we would wish. Mr. Collins does not have enough wit to see his own shortcomings and ridiculousness. Collins is all comedy. Bennet is both comedy and tragedy.

Readers can have a degree of sympahy and begruding liking for Mr. Bennet that is impossible to have towards Mr. Collins who is so stupid, ignorant, small-minded, and dull. Though Jane Austen makes them both objects of humor, which do you think she'd rather spend an evening's converstion with if they existed in her real life?
