Fate and chance, along with destiny and design, may be put to rout by Darcy's
power of choice and Elizabeth's wit to choose, and both are aided and abetted by
the energy of Jane Austen's own humour, but accident cannot be ruled out even
of the novel that puts the greatest stress on the responsibility of choosing.
Characters in novels, like people in real life, are not free agents, since they are
born into families and encumbered with the circumstances in which, if it is to be

Yet however much Scott's novels of national identity and Stuart risings are
celebrated for helping countries across Europe assert their cultural difference
and choose their own political path, they repeatedly emphasise the responsibility,
the difficulty, and even the impossibility of choice.1 In novels full of pressing
