Number of meetings between the Bennets and Darcy

December 19, 2017 08:00AM
I'm not sure if I interpret the text correctly, but I think JA may not have described each single encounter among the Hertfordshire society. At least, I have always interpreted the part you quoted (Darcy criticizing E to his friends and realizing she was attractive after all) as having happened between their first encounter at the Assembly and the present meeting at the Lucases, where he is already admiring/observing her and listening in to her conversations (i. e. his opinion has already changed). In fact, your quote is described before it is mentioned that the Lucases have a party and what happens here is told. .

For example, at the beginning of Chapter 6 (in which the Lucas party is described) it is mentioned that the ladies of Longbourn waited on the ladies of netherfield; they returned the call; and after that, that Mr. Bingley's admiration for jane was evident whenever they met - implying that they did meet before the Lucas party. It is not saitd, but very likely that Darcy also was present on those occasions. Certainly, he and Elizabeth are already acquainted/introduced when she confronts him about eavesdropping/listening in to her conversation uninvited.
