I believe there may be two correct answers to this question ;)

Vic said...

The chronology of the novel spans one year, so in that sense you are correct! I am looking for the answer in which Mr. Darcy reveals his age during his second proposal to Lizzie. This can be found in the text or in Wikipedia, I believe.

Thank you for pointing this out.

I was thinking the same thing as Jessica. So I must defend my answer, now that I have looked up the correct response, that I must have mentally done the math and put his age back a year to what he would have been at the beginning of the book!

Vic said...

Actually, thinking about the timeline, people are largely voting for the two correct answers! They shall be revealed at the end of this week.

Wendi said...

I guess I should have read the comments before voting, lol.

Wendi, my sense is that you voted for one of the correct ages! This was not meant to be a trick question, for I really had only one age in mind, forgetting that the year-long span of the novel would throw the question slightly askew.
