Jane Austen's novels.

Jane Austen's best novels are set in provincial middle class England and are based on simple plots usually centred on love stories between genteel young women and men.
Jane Austen's characters lead a quiet country life, the only disturbing element is love, not passionate or tragic love but the polite exchanges between the two sexes.
Austen satirizes the exaggerated sentimentality of contemporary novels, and rejects a purely romantic and sentimental view of love.
In Pride and Prejudice she satirizes another side of love: the desperate search for an husband.
Young women of Austen's time had limited socially prescribed options open to them regarding their future.
Because of the extremely limited options a woman had in order to earn a living, marriage was essential for financial and social well-being. In the world of Pride and Prejudice, marriage is a necessity. If a woman remained unmarried for the rest of her life, she would remain dependent on her relatives, living with or receiving a small income from her father, brothers or any other relative that could afford to support her.

Jane Austen: biografia breve


The central theme of the novel concerns itself with marriage, as indicated in the ironic opening line of the book. Throughout the novel, it is not the man seeking the wife but more so Mrs. Bennet seeking an husband for her daughters.
So the most common theme in Jane Austen’s novels is love, and in particular, the marriage. Romance is central in most of her written works, such as in Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Persuasion.
The pursuit for true love was often depicted to have passed through a series of turmoil and rejection, of heartbreak and anguish; but the perpetrators of love stood victorious in the end.
All of Jane Austen's novels centre on experience of a young woman who develops her understanding of herself and of other people. All the books end with the young woman's happy marriage.
