Which mode of narration is apparent in the last two lines of this excerpt from Jane Austen's pride and prejudice?

(1) Answers

These lines use what is known as free indirect speech, or free indirect discourse. This combine elements of third person narration with first person chiming in to describe the character's thoughts and feelings or emotions. This can be conveyed by the author directly voicing what the character is thinking, while describing the character doing an action in the third person.
