Literary Characters

OF THE BABY NAME COLLINS

William Collins is a most wonderfully drawn character in Jane Austen’s 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice. He is a pompous, obsequious clergyman who has the great fortune of inheriting the Bennet estate by virtue of being the only male relative. With great condescension, he proposes marriage to Elizabeth Bennet (having ascertained that her sister, Jane, is not available). Blithely assuming the priceless nature of his offer, he is astounded when he is turned down. After all, his great patroness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has advised him to marry! How could anyone turn down such a recommendation?! Mr. Collins doesn’t waste any time; he quickly asks for and receives the hand of Charlotte Lucas, Elizabeth’s friend. So entranced is he with his social standing by association, William Collins is a classic snob, without any entitlement to being one. As Mr. Bennet so aptly describes him, he is, in a word, “absurd”. Sorry – no redeeming qualities for this William, except the best of all – he makes us laugh.
