Social Satires
-shifts away from individuality of 2 characters; places them in relation to their society

personalities
-Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion
-her novels focus on how 2 ppl have difficulty misunderstanding each other.
English Peerage
-peerage = English nobility. Conferred by monarch on individuals, who inherit property,
-everone else beneath the “Peerage is a commoner. But there’s a “grey area” called the
gentry, and the gentlemen below them (who emulate the Peerage)
-Knights + Baronets = gentry
-Baronet: differs from knighthood in that it is hereditary. Usually associated w a specific
place or property.
-originally, James I granted baronetcy to men who supported him financially -> not
peerage
Ch. 1: opening
-commenting on reading
-Sir Walter Elliot reads the book as though it is a mirror, where he reads his own self into
it -> affirms own vanity in it.
-vanity of status + appearance
-stylistic prose: she speaks outside, and within, him. We get to see him objectively but
also slide into his mind to see the cold, sterile, naricisstic character he truly is -> cold and
objective about his wife’s death:most accurately”
