Chapter Four explores the dynamics of giving and receiving and Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The novel has generally been understood to either fulfill or betray the promise of a perfect union of love and respect between romantic partners. This chapter attends to the range of powerful, non-reciprocal emotions that run counter to an ethics of mutuality in the novel, showing how gratitude and humility engender intimacy.
