Jane Austen's novels are rarely overtly didactic. They are constructed around particular themes which subtly convey her concerns to the reader. Her themes are very intricately woven into the:
- Flow of the plot
- Development of the narrative
- Interactions between characters
- Imagery in the novel.
They are multilayered and overlapping. For instance, the themes of morality and manners and society and the individual have some commonalities: our understanding of one augments our understanding of the other.
