Jane Austen is one of the authors who owns a great prestige in the literary scenario, most notably for putting into the light aspects of the English society in which she was linked. Among many subjects described by the scholars, there is one that will be in this dissertation called into question, namely, the representative role of reading for fictional readers in two works written by her, Firstly the novel Sense and Sensibility (1811) whose selected aspect, is triggered by the disastrous reading that the heroin, Marianne Dashwood does; and, on the other hand we will point out a differentiated reading posture, in this case, in Pride and Prejudice (1813), whose tracking seems to indicate an ideal model of character as a reader, with the figure of the protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet. In both texts, we will intend to develop a literary analysis, which considers the political and social aspects, subordinating our work, to Jameson’s levels of interpretation.
