Austen's works have endured because she had a superb narrative technique and a gift for creating characters who feel as real as life itself. She didn't just write about romance. She observed subjects and social and emotional struggles that are struggles that are still very relevant today. She could pull at your heartstrings, but she could also make you laugh and cry. At the end of her books, if you're paying attention, you come away feeling a little wiser about yourself and what's important in life.
