Jane Austen's "Sense And Sensibility"

Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” Thomas Hardy’s “Tess of the d’Ubervilles” and the Importance of Social Status
[ send me this essay ]
This 14 page report discusses two classics of 19th century English literature and the importance that social status played in each of the stories. Both Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy clearly understand the essential nature of social status in the process of creating, developing, and maintaining a relationship with another person, as well as the opportunities available to an individual. In fact, it would seem that they both suggest that social status is a fundamental ingredient in the actual processes and meaning of life. However, because each author presents the ideas and ideals of social status in significantly different ways, this paper argues that Austen’s work, her characters, plots, and outcomes are actually the more dependent on it than Hardy’s. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
