Life and Art 2

Down the board I posted a message with this heading, which Caroline suggested be reconsidered when the group read was over... so here goes:
Basically, reading the biography has made people consider relationships between JA's life and her writing in various ways. What I was wondering about was ways in which her writing departs from her own life: for example, mothers are not significant characters, as a rule, and are often dead or not present for parts of the novel. But JA spent most of her life under the same roof as her own mamma. Are there other such differences? And why are they there? One could get very psychological about the mothers thing...
