Does Elizabeth like Lady Catherine, and what does her cousin Mr. Collins think of Lady Catherine's estate in Pride and Prejudice?
At first, Elizabeth does not know quite what to think of Lady Catherine. Elizabeth, being strong-minded herself, is not used to people critiquing her especially out in the open. Lady Catherine is quite disdainful toward Lizzy and makes derogatory comments about Lizzy and her sisters' upbringing--even though she hasn't met any other member of the Bennet family. This causes Elizabeth to be underwhelmed by the woman who commands so much respect in her small corner of England.
In contrast, Mr. Collins is enamored with Rosings and Lady Catherine; he has to be since Lady Catherine is his patroness (the source of his income). He treats Rosings like a palace and Lady Catherine like the queen. His sniveling, ingratiating behavior in the Lady's presence and whenever he discusses her sickens Lizzy and makes her more prone to dislike Lady Catherine.
