Jane Austen

Jane Austen


Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century.  Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.  Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism, humour, and social commentary, have long earned her acclaim among critics, scholars, and popular audiences alike.





It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.
JANE AUSTEN, Sense and Sensibility





Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.
JANE AUSTEN, Pride and Prejudice






Better be without sense than misapply it as you do.
JANE AUSTEN, Emma

Certainly, Jane highly impacted in the role of women in English society in the late 18th and early 19th century, also considering the importance that novel reading has in both the society in which Austen lived and in the 21st century.
