Austen: - Jane Austen 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 favorable social standing and economic security. Austen's use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary have earned her great and historical importance to critics and scholars.
