Personaggi di
Orgoglio e pregiudizio

I romanzi di Jane Austen furono pubblicati, come si usava all'epoca, in più volumi, numerando i capitoli per ciascun volume, e le edizioni critiche (Chapman e Cambridge) seguono questo criterio. Molte edizioni moderne, anche tra quelle italiane, hanno invece adottato una numerazione unica, senza tener conto della divisione in volumi. Prima delle citazioni ho perciò indicato sia la prima che la seconda numerazione.
In Pride and Prejudice la suddivisione in volumi è la seguente: I vol.: 23 capitoli; II vol.: 19 capitoli; III vol.: 19 capitoli. La numerazione continua va da 1 a 61.
