LITERATURE - AUTHORS
Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six novels, which implicitly 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 for the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works are an implicit critique of the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism.[b] Her deft use of social commentary, realism and biting irony have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars. <ABOUT THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
