Jane Austen sprang from the upper middle class society of late eighteenth century southern England. Self-contained, orthodox in morals and religion, generally Tory in politics, depending for its strength on the professions and on the ownership of land - �this was the milieu in which she spent her entire life and which she describes so memorably in her novels. Indeed, her environment provided her with material ideally suited to her talents: accurate obser�vation of character, wit, dramatic intuition, an ear for realistic dialogue and a highly disciplined formal sense. These gifts, already. evident in the early and satirical novels, 'Northanger Abbey' and Sense and Sensibility' were to receive their perfect expression in the great books of her maturity: 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Mansfield Park', 'Emma' and 'Persuasion'.
