A Study of Feminist Consciousness in Emma

  1. Introduction

Jane Austen (December 16, 1775—July 18, 1817) was a very great female British writer, born in a family with strong cultural atmosphere. The era Austen lived in was not only the rise of British Industrial Revolution and Industrial Bourgeoisie, but also the transformation from feudal society to modern capitalist society. Her father was a pastor of considerable social influence and her mother was good at words. Influenced by this family background, Jane Austen had deep affection for reading, writing poems and acting with her sisters. Her works, contrary to the tradition of romantic novels and Gothic novels, focused on describing the daily life of middle-class families, expressed social values from trivial matters and created a number of women characters of independent thinking. Early in 1816, Sir Walter Scott, a famous contemporary writer of Jane Austen, affirmed Austen’s artistic talent and stated: “That young lady (Jane Austen) had a talent for describing the involvements and feelings and characters of ordinary life, which is to me the most wonderful I ever met with” (Scott 3). Her representative novels are Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park.

Emma was written in 1816 as Jane’s fourth publication, which was said to be one of Jane Austen’s most successful works and one of the greatest feminist novels in the world literary history.
