In Pride and Prejudice, can you talk about the italics as some sort of device in and essay. I'm really grasping at straws here because there's literally nothing to analyse :/

I've done Pride and Prejudice, but it depends on the question as well. What's it asking you to do?

yeah, you can- as long as your idea is reasonable- eg. the letters are falling to the side because the character is also falling is a bit far fetched
i think italics are mainly used for emphasis?

It's an essay on how the relationship is presented between Darcy and Lizzy and I was going to say that the italics show Lizzy's anger (etc etc) in ‘I could easily forgive his pride had he not mortified mine’

Yes, italics are a typographic feature but be more analytical than simply writing "it adds emphasis", the least insightful comment you could possibly make. I've personally never read P&P so cannot comment but try to think about why the author would have used it, for example referencing inner thoughts, sarcasm/irony or background information if necessary and fitting.

You can-to an extent.
The problem is that you can only write so much
Talk about the structure, specific language used and the purpose. Don't forget to mention the writer's methods and the effect on the reader, linking your point to contextual factors influencing Jane's writing.
Hope this has helped and Good Luck!👍
