...as another has pointed out, Austen rarely gives us such detail and background. She tells us only what's essential to the story, leaving out the "local color" so essential to lesser^^^^^^other authors, and the personal description so essential les^^^other authors, and the social background so essential to --other authors :-).
Her work is for us who are fascinated with the human essentials of her characters -- which is much of why I, at least, am totally addicted to her work.
And why we can disagree intensely and over and over about these wonderful novels and their denizens, and still love them and one another.
