Sample text

2) In drama, a tragedy is as illuminating as it is inevitable. Classic Greek tragedies show how character determines fate: Individuals in tragedies can avoid neither their natures nor the miserable ends that the gods arrange. Though Jane Austen’s characters are generally held to be in control of their actions, there is a measure of tragic inevitability in the stories of Eliza Brandon and Eliza Williams. The women’s passionate natures, when left to the unscrupulous men who exploit them, result in ruin.

Another character that marries for reasons other than love is Lydia Bennet, who marries solely for pleasure. Mr. and Mrs. Bennet themselves show that the suitability of a husband and wife is important. Mr. Bennet, though he is charming, shows his disrespect for his wife throughout the novel. The primary personal cost of Charlotte’s marriage is her distance from Elizabeth, whose “friendship [Charlotte] valued beyond that of any other person” (1: 22; italics added). The absence of love in this match is what is particularly galling to Elizabeth, and she “could not have supposed it possible that when called into action, [Charlotte] would have sacrificed every better feeling to worldly advantage” (1: 22).

Austen’s Influences Jane Austen was born and raised in the English countryside village of Steventon, and it is in provincial settings that the most felicitous moments of her novels are set. Bath and London also make appearances in Austen’s works, but they are generally characterized as chaotic, the stomping grounds of mountebanks—characters set on deceit, deception, and appearances. Austen knew these urban places well, and her family connections ensured that she was apprised of the cosmopolitan world, but her heart was in neither fashion nor society.
