    What has made Jane Austen such a pop culture phenomenon?

    Jane Austen has a prestigious place in the literary world.  Her novels challenge the reader to think critically, and are enjoyable to read.  Several of her novels have film adaptations and Austen fan sites are numerous.  She has proved herself timeless, yet what exactly is it that attracts modern-day readers & film-goers to her?

    The perfect formula Love, romance, trials and tribulations and a happy ending. I think it is not just modern but timeless. If you look back she has always had an audience for her stories.

      I agree.  Austen 's novels contain so many elements that they are able to appeal to different audiences, whether it's those who enjoy the romantic or suspenseful aspects. And the happy endings are important! Thanks for your insight justsilvie!
