For many, Jane Austen’s novels helped to define the Regency period. Her plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage to gain social standing and economic security and her major novels were a comment on the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. What characterizes her work more than anything, though, is her biting wit and keen characterizations which have delighted readers for centuries.
