Mr Dacry is one of the great figures of Romantic Literature, he is more than the leading character in Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. He is a Gentlemanly Icon. His initially aloof and cold demeanour is shown to be false and he has a depth of understated passion that piles through the book. He, alongside a very few male characters in literature, epitomise the Romantic Male. He stands alongside such Romantic Literary heroes such as Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind), Sydney Carton (A Tale of Two Cities) and Edmond Dantes (The Count of Montecristo).
