Jane Austen; Author of Women’s Concerns
Jane Austen Jane Austen was born into a typical family. Austin (1817-1775) spent his entire forty-two years in England with family and friends, never marrying. During this time he wrote six love stories, which, despite the fame he brought to Austin today, came to fruition very late in his life, and for a long time the title of the book was used instead of the author’s name.

However, this did not stop Austin’s passion for writing and, in his own words, “know your happiness and joy. You need nothing but patience. Of course, it might be better to give it an attractive name; “Sing his hope.”
The main sources of information about Jane Austen’s life are her family letters, especially those she wrote to her sister Cassandra from 1796 onwards, who had a very close relationship. Another part of this information came from the memories left by his family, which were not available in writing until half a century after Jane Austen’s death.
This includes the existence of a library of five hundred volumes of books in Austin’s father’s house, which gave Jane the opportunity to read serious and popular literature. Jane Austen’s early letters were about dances and celebrations in Hampshire, which can be seen in Austin’s work. In these letters he speaks of his visit to the cities of “London, Bath and Southampton” and his presence in various plays.

Jane Austen’s writing style
Jane Austen Jane Austen tries to portray a part of the daily life of the people of a small village in England with a social pen that is sometimes accompanied by humor and avoids giving details. One of the issues that played a significant role in women’s lives at that time was the issue of marriage. The period when a good marriage was a great success.

The story begins with the introduction of Emma as a young, simplistic girl who thinks she can judge people and make decisions for them, but as Emma’s story progresses, she transforms and becomes self-aware. In fact, Austin in this book shows that his writings go deeper than romantic fantasies. Two centuries have passed since the novel was written, but it still has a reader, cinematic adaptations are made of it, and critics find new insights into its various dimensions.

Jane Austen’s secret is that the characters in her stories are oblivious to their flaws and shortcomings. The deadly embarrassment that forms the drama of the story after being aware of the mistakes and harms they have done to others and then knocking on every door to make up for it. The failure of this desperate effort has led to the demise of many recent adaptations of Austen’s work; That’s why the 2005 Pride and Prejudice version of Pride and Prejudice, which ignored Lizzie’s transformation of herself and her behavior, caused some to dislike the film.
One of these points is the attention paid to Jane Austen, who has led to her being called a feminist; Because in her works she has interpreted, criticized and commented on patriarchy and the role of women in eighteenth century English society.
In his books, Austin goes beyond the romantic adventures of his ordinary characters and indirectly addresses the political turmoil and social inconsistencies of his time; Inheritance laws that made women dependent on their male relatives, Britain’s economic dependence on slavery and its colonies, and attention to a militarized environment with control of political expression are among the themes addressed in Austin’s work. Austin’s knowledge of women’s lives and his skill in corners and allusions made him one of the most famous novelists of his day.
