Jane Austen was a renowned English novelist. She was especially famous for depicting stories of the upper-middle class women from the 18th to the 19th century. Austen mainly dealt with stories about young people’s love in a period of a political upheaval. For this reason, many people criticized her works for not including historical and social consciousness. However, others admired her works, as she successfully satirized materialism. One of Austen’s most famous works is Pride and Prejudice.
