In response to Why IS Jane Austen so relevant in today's society?, written by kat n. on November 10, 1997 at 22:26:53
Essentially a lot of Art is about life, but also about men and women. Some things change but our basic needs do not, so in this respect at a simple level a relation remains.
Also, life in a lot of the wprld in terms of relationships has/have lost an essential part. No matter how "good" you are people are always trying to tell you to follow a level of "jugular" philosophy(go for!). So sponatanoeus and innocent life seems to be dissapearing.
On a surface level we may think that Austen too is not spontaneous. But, her stories are about belief,values, spirit and good. We all like happy endings!
It also reinforces a need in us to see the good "win".
