This character has awakened some curiosities about the role that has in the book "Pride and Prejudice". For example:
  •       Dinah Birch, professor at the University of Liverpool, examines the cleric as a critique of the church role in society. Mr. Collins that it is "by no means an example of holiness."
  • Margaret Kirkham said that Mr. Collins, who will inherit Longbourn, as a way to Austen "mocks sexist pride and prejudice"
