THE novels of Jane Austen gave a glimpse of the world of women in genteel rural society in early 19th century Britain. They made us think about a society which encouraged women to look for good marriages and find wealthy propertied husband as stated in Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’. Austen portrays women to be preoccupied with marriage and money.
Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Jane Eyre’ published in 1874 shows Jane as young and assertive. She is independent and protests against the hypocrisy of her elders. Her novels dealt with women, who broke established norms of society before adjusting to them and therefore found sympathetic readers.
