The realist novel, defined by its putatively objective narrator, psychologically developed characters, and minute description of the realities of domestic life, was in part inaugurated by Austen in Pride and Prejudice, and would come to dominate the literary scene in England throughout the rest of the nineteenth century. The rise of the novel has historically been linked to the rise of the middle class in England from the eighteenth century onwards, because this expanding social class (and middle class women in particular) had both the income and the leisure time available to consume them. Although novels were widely read, throughout the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, they were largely considered unserious, frivolous, and even irrelevant—a merely “popular” genre.

There could many different endings to Pride and Prejudice.Â At the end of the novel, Elizabeth becomes engaged to Mr. Darcy, her true love, despite their differences.Â They overcome adversity and their own pride and prejudice to be together.Â It's a happy ending.
Possibilities of alternate endings would be Elizabeth and Darcy NOT ending up together and their pride and prejudice getting in their way of true happiness.Â Jane and Mr. Bingley could also have not ended up together, either, in an alternate ending, for example.
