Answer:

The structure of Shakespearean sonnets makes the form unique from other sonnet types. Sonnets have fourteen lines and the rhyme scheme changes within each form. Shakespearean sonnets follow the rhyme scheme of ABAB CDCD EFEF GG. They also utilize iambic pentameter, each line contains five iambs. An iamb is a two-syllable pair with emphasis on the second syllable. For example, in "Romeo and Juliet" Shakespeare writes "Two households, both alike in dignity".

Answer:

Lydia and Wickham’s “courtship” and marriage highlights the dangers young, financially unstable women faced in 19th Century England. Lydia was the youngest of five, unmarried daughters whose lands would be inherited by a male cousin who felt no real familial duty to protect them or ensure their future. Her livelihood rested upon her eldest sisters obtaining favorable matches from wealthy men that could support her. Her mother was insistent on marrying off the girls, it was her main focus throughout the novel. Lydia internalized that necessity and placed an extremely high value on the act of getting married, to the point of toting her marriage to Wickham as a victory even as a great scandal surrounded her. Yet Wickham had tried to elope with another young woman before Lydia: Georgiana Darcy. Georgiana was a young heiress but had the added benefit of having a staunch protector figure in her brother Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy thwarted Wickham’s plans by giving him a monetary incentive to back away. The Bennett’s did not have the power to protect their youngest daughter from the same fate. In fact, Mr. Bennet believed that powerlessness actually benefitted Lydia as he explained his reasoning for allowing Lydia to go with the Forster’s to Brighton. Wickham’s pursuit of both Lydia and Georgiana exemplified the danger all women, regardless of economic class, faced when picking a partner.
