"It is a truth universally acknowledged" that the works of Jane Austen explore the life of the British landed gentry near the end of the 18th century, often dealing with the dependence of women on achieving a suitable marriage to gain a stable position in society. They have been the basis of numerous adaptations for both the large and small screens, but these quizzes focus on the original books.
