Mr Bennet’s sarcastic wit is the main feature of a man who has withdrawn from active involvement in his marriage. His disappointment manifests itself by negative mockery and cynicism.

“Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humor, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character.”
