The world of books is very unique and beautiful. The definition of imagination becomes limitless for one who is once connected with this world. Connecting with your readers is an equally fun experience for a book writer. This is the reason why books and stories are immortalized in the minds of readers forever. One such writer is ‘Jane Auston’. Jane Austen, who made a place in the hearts of people mainly by writing romantic fictions or rom-coms, is also in the news these days due to her film based on the novel Persuasion.
Although the film garnered far less space in the minds of critics and audiences than any of Jane Auston’s novels, it has remained a classic novel for its readers. Like the rest of his novels, in this novel too, Jane has presented an interpretation and scenario of English society. But like the novel, the film could not make a place in the minds of the people. It is also being told that as soon as the trailer of the film came out, it was rejected by the fans of Jane Austen. So with this discussion let’s know about Jane Austen.
British-born Jane Austen was the seventh of eight children in the entire family. Often when we talk about foreign countries, we think that there will be a very open-minded and open environment regarding women and girls, but we forget that whatever the country is, the policy makers and rule makers should be men only. Huh. British society was also no different from this and a clear example of this is seen in the heroines of Jane Austen’s novel.
Jane, with her writings, presented all the social situations in a very light but strong way, which were associated with women of that period. Her heroines were mostly clever, intelligent and skilful who spoke beyond superficial beauty. An example of this is Elizabeth, the heroine of Jane’s novel Pride and Prejudice, who prefers virtue over superficial beauty. It is noteworthy that this novel was called ‘My Own Darling Child’ by Jane.
Jane herself has also been an example in her own right. Jane’s early education was provided by her father and older brothers, but Jane also had a world of her own books and she taught them a lot. This was the reason that Jane started writing stories, dramas etc. in her teens. This was also important because writing was not considered a women’s job at that time. Earning money from writing was an even bigger sin. So Jane’s early novels were published under a pseudonym. His writings would be read among family and friends.
Most notably, his writing also contained the precise sarcasm and humor that are generally considered to be the subject of men’s writings. One reason for this was also that writing-reading was given to Jane from her family. His mother also wrote and his two older brothers wrote a weekly newspaper full of humor and jokes. Like her heroines, Jane also believed in love, but she did not approve of marrying only for social or traditional fulfillment. That’s why she remained unmarried for the rest of her life. Jane, who said goodbye to the world at the age of 41, presented the society around her to the world through novels. It is an irony that Jane’s works gained more fame after her departure. His famous works include Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, Emma etc.
