It is named after the first four British kings from the House of Hanover, George I, George II, George III, and George IV. Jane Austen (1775-1817) lived entirely in the reign of George III (r. 1760-1820). Around 1811, George III went insane, and his son (later George IV) ruled in his place until the death of his father, a period known as the Regency. John Constable, View of Epsom

Turner are two of the most important English painters of the late Georgian era. They were both important landscape painters, which was less appreciated than history paintings. However, Turner also painted history paintings, such as his Battle of Trafalgar.

J. M. W. Turner, The Battle of Trafalgar (1822) John Constable, The Hay Wain (1821) Jane Austen (1775-1817) Born in Steventon, England George Austen (father) was the clergyman of the local parish. She was educated mostly at home by her father with her seven siblings. Her writing began in her teens with parodies and skits to

entertain her family. A water color and pencil sketch of Austen, believed to have been drawn from life by her sister Cassandra (c. 1810). Austens Writings Sense and Sensibility (1811) Pride and Prejudice (1813) Mansfield Park (1814) Emma (1816) Northanger Abbey and

Persuasion were both published posthumously in 1818. She began a another novel, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it. Anonymous Writer Austen published her novels anonymously, and only her family knew that she was the author of these novels. Prevented her from acquiring and authorial reputation, but it enabled her to preserve her privacy. English society associated a females entrance into the public sphere with a reprehensible loss of femininity. Napoleonic Wars (1800-1815) threatened the

safety of monarchies throughout Europe, so the government censored literature. J.M.W. Turner, Off Margate, 1840 Writing Style Novels of Manners critique social customs, conventions, and behaviors of a particular social class at a specific time and place. Includes satirical wit (especially in the realities of love and marriage) Satirizes snobs and the poor breeding of the lower social classes. Often critical of the assumptions and prejudices of upper-class England. Realistic about the lack of social mobility and the awareness of class. Advancement for men: military, church, or law

8. 9. First impressions are often wrong. Children are rarely justified in being embarrassed by their parents. Parents should have some say about whom their children marry. Families should be concerned with what others think. Love at first sight is a common occurrence. People communicate more effectively in the twenty-first century than they did during the nineteenth century. Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance (Charlotte, 21). Playing hard to get is useful in attracting members of the opposite sex. People are happiest when they marry within their own social class. John Constable, View of Epsom
