Summary This film presents a brief biography of Jane Austen (16 December 1775-18 July 1817), and explores the landscapes where she spent her life. Austen lived her entire life as part of a small and close-knit family located on the lower fringes of English gentry, and her works analyze the novels of sensibility of the second half of the eighteenth century. Austen's biting social commentary was aimed at moral issues, principally the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her whose works of romantic fiction set among the gentry have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature, while her historical importance hinges on her contribution to the transition to nineteenth-century realism.
