* GenreAdultery: ''Mansfield Park'' -- Janeites who pick up this somber tale of psychological abuse, adultery, and family dysfunction that are definitely ''not'' played for laughs might think they picked up a CharlotteBronte novel by mistake.

Let's make these contrasts into an actual parallel
* FirstLove: An important element in the novels of Jane Austen, who uses the FirstLove trope often under the role of WrongGuyFirst, and her examples are as follows: ** In ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', Lizzy is infatuated with Wickham before she eventually realizes that he is not a decent person and that Darcy, a man she scorned, is a true gentleman. The concept of the first love is also humorously undermined when Mr. Collins rapidly transfers his affections from Jane to Lizzy to Charlotte Lucas. ** In ''Literature/SenseAndSensibility'', Marianne has to move past Willoughby before appreciating the worth of Colonel Brandon. Prior to the story beginning, Edward Ferrars has imprudently gotten engaged to Lucy Steele, which prevents him from courting Elinor. ** These are all examples of [[FirstLove First Loves]] going wrong, but Austen also has a few examples among her repertoire of FirstLove turning out right:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In ''TheJaneAustenBookClub'', the characters all participate in storylines which deliberately call back to one of her novels - sometimes with bonus crossover craziness as well!

* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: In all of the novels, there is no scene where two male characters are alone together without a woman present. Austen didn't want to speculate on how men behaved on their own. There are two exception to the Jane Austen rule: there's a scene between Sir Thomas and his son Tom early in ''Literature/MansfieldPark,'' where they discuss Tom's debts, and later one scene with Sir Thomas and his younger son Edmund, talking about the theatre.

Her novels are wildly sarcastic in nature, and all follow a similar formula: gentlewoman sooner or later falls in love with man but can't marry him because he's engaged to someone else/he's in love with someone else/etc. Often there are cads to tempt her a s well, but ultimately she ends up with the good guy who won't steal all her money and/or abandon her somewhere. There's far more variety among her heroines in terms of personality, though. She specialized in two types: the lively, witty, restless heroine who never fears to speak her mind ([[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice Elizabeth Bennet]], [[Literature/SenseAndSensibility Marianne Dashwood]], [[Literature/{{Emma}} Emma Woodhouse]]); and the quiet, StoicWoobie who rarely if ever speaks her mind since everyone misjudges her anyway ([[Literature/SenseAndSensibility Elinor Dashwood]], [[Literature/MansfieldPark Fanny Price]], [[Literature/{{Persuasion}} Anne Elliot]]).
