This paper explains that Jane Austen's novel "Pride and Prejudice" is structured around aspects of pride versus prejudice. The author points out that most of the characters depict these traits in their behaviors and their personalities as seen in proud Darcy and prejudiced Elizabeth. The paper concludes that this book is really about love because, in the end, the reigning aspect of love is able to ultimately dominate and dissolve any form of pride or prejudice previously existing in Austen's characters.

From the Paper:

"The initial meeting of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy at the Meryton Ball overall establishes this theme of pride versus prejudice in the novel. Mr. Bingley, having already been interested in Jane Bennet, suggests to Mr. Darcy that he ask Lizzie to dance. Mr. Darcy's initial reaction to Bingley's offer reflects his opinion of the lower class of society, and his assurance that he is well above and beyond socially inferior women such as Lizzie."
