A Comprehensive Study of Women Character in the Selected Novels of Jane Austen

Syed Zareena


Abstract: In Jane Austen's works, the role and expectations of women in the society are both reflected and questioned. This research outlines how Austen used her novels to represent the society in which she lived and how the society placed a sense of duty on women, specifically in terms of family, education, and marriage. Along with the representation of these duties, Researcher also focus upon on how Austen uses her protagonists, primarily in the novels Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Mansfield Park, to question those standards and provide for her readers examples of women whom they could relate to and learn from as well. My major point of focus is how Austen challenges her readers to learn from the example set by her countercultural female protagonists. Finally, taking into account the ways which Austen reflects and challenges the roles of women, researcher conclude with a focus on how Austen emphasizes the importance of novels within her society, while also considering the impact that novel reading has in both the society in which Austen lived in that period of time.
