The Landlady as devoid of a social message. In Dostoyevsky joined a group of young intellectuals, led by Mikhail Petrashevsky, which met to discuss literary and political issues. In the reactionary political climate of mid-nineteenth-century Russia, such groups were illegal, and in the members of the so-called Petrashevsky Circle were arrested and charged with subversion. Dostoyevsky and several of his associates were imprisoned and sentenced to death.
That is amazing when one thinks about how the other art forms —painting, music, architecture — fall out of fashion with each generation, and give way to new forms. And also when one thinks about how many novels have been written since hers. Jane Austen — a portrait by her sister Cassandra One has to ask why it is that her novels have lasted and are still widely read.
One thing is certain: Jane Austen prods away at the social conventions of her time and how they fashion and condition the English landed gentry, the people she socialised with and whom she observed closely.
She reveals the little preoccupations and concerns of the ladies and the gentlemen and the young women in those circles, and she leads us to laugh at them. And every novel tells a gripping story, full of tension, with mysteries where we are kept waiting for their final resolution, when everything falls into place — very much like the best detective novels of our time.
It is difficult to pin down what it is that Jane Austen does with language to create that combination of humour and penetrating insight. It has something to do with the way she constructs sentences — all perfectly balanced and often with a sting in the tail, and a style of narration in which the variety of points of view of the different characters tell the story.
It is perhaps that latter characteristic that makes her such a modern writer — indeed, a postmodern writer — as her stories are usually told with her pretending to be the narrator, but she is not, and we fall into the trap of taking her narrator seriously. With that narrative style she is able to reveal and ridicule the manners of her society.
Her novels always have a young woman at their centre — a young woman with romantic dreams and hopes about meeting and marrying her perfect man.
We have an image of Jane Austen as a spinster who lived quietly with her mother and sister and wrote her novels in semi-secrecy, hiding her pages away if she heard anyone approaching while she was writing.
She had six brothers and one sister, Cassandra, to whom she was very close. The family did not have enough money to send her to school so she was educated at home, where she read a great deal, directed by her father and brothers Henry and James. She also experimented with writing little stories from early childhood and one can still read her juvenilia, which has been collected by various editors.
