This is a list of characters and their interrelationships, with many hypertext links from and to the main text of Pride and Prejudice (it is based ultimately on the basic list of characters in Chapman's 1923 edition). Select the name of a character in the detailed alphabetical listing below to jump to the first meaningful appearance of that character in the novel. Other links are to significant descriptions of the major characters -- this list indexes passages which describe the appearances, personalities, and circumstances of the characters (but does not index the events in the novel as such; for this see the chronological index). The index to passages referring to the themes of "pride" and "prejudice" has additional insights into some of the characters.
