The limited scope of this chapter must be stressed at the start. ‘The place of women’ in the world of Jane Austen’s novels is an enormous subject, and the aim of this chapter is restricted to finding some definite pointers in the four extracts selected for study. These pointers are then related to the heroine’s circumstances in a brief extension discussion, in each case. However, these discussions cannot do more than suggest ideas that the student should develop independently by studying other parts of the text.
