- Anvilicious - Doesn't even begin to cover it.
- Fair for Its Day - What do you expect, this is centuries old.
- Don't Shoot the Message - yes, it's ridiculously preachy, sentimental, and all the characters are one-dimensional. But for that time (and even, in a way, today), the message of "Don't run off with a hot guy who looks good in a uniform" was extremely important - as Lydia Bennet (or at least, her sisters) could attest.
- Values Dissonance
- The Woobie - Charlotte, and the narrator reminds us of her status frequently.
