However if the responder were to read Fay Weldon’s Letters to Alice on first reading Jane Austen, the connections between the two would shape and then reshape the responder’s understanding of both texts. The two texts are connected most obviously through Weldon’s commentary and analysis of Austen’s writing and social and historical context. However the two texts are also connected through their didactic purpose, examination of values, use of epistles and their female author’s status and feminist messages. Whilst all of these connections do enrich each text, it is to a limited extent as both texts also work in isolation.

Aunt Georgiana also had those so-called “better days” in her past, when she used to be a music teacher at the Boston Conservatory. She left that behind when she decided to get married to Howard Carpenter and live on a farm.
Jane Austen & Parent-Child Relationships Just as there are no two people in this world are exactly the same, the equivalent is true for families. Even though there can be very distinct similarities found, every family is constructed in its own unique manner. They all face their own set of issues, handle problems differently, and interact with one another in many different ways. The dynamics of a family can be influenced by their surroundings, environment, circumstances, social-economic status, and other factors such as these.
