As with most writers, Jane Austen’s work is a reflection of her historical and cultural contexts, including the literary movements in which she lived in work in addition to an understanding of how class and gender functioned during Austen’s time. I designed this for use with my Pride and Prejudice unit, but these notes would work to introduce ANY of Austen's work.
