Austen’s novels brilliantly combine drama with humour as they explore the enduring truths about the ways in which we look for happiness and a sense of belonging. The novels dramatise issues of class and the expectations and conventions of the time during which the books were written.
Jane Austen’s novels provide us with rich examples of the uses of language to describe behaviour and the ways in which we all think and feel. Even though her novels are now two hundred years old, they remain relevant and resonant in our lives today in many ways.
