Janet Todd once asserted that "Austen creates an illusion of realism in her texts, partly through readably identification with the characters and partly through rounded characters, which have a history and a memory.” (Todd, The Cambridge Introduction to Jane Austen, 28.) Her works are deeply influenced between by late eighteenth-century Britain rationalism phenomenon and early nineteenth-century of romanticism. In the term of realism, Emma’s society value view represented the problematic old society.

Her nephew James Edward Austen - Leigh in A Memoir of Jane Austen describes their financial state: "For the next for years Mrs. Austen and her two daughters, with a small income, were living first in lodgings" (339), which were the years that Jane Austen had stopped writing.

Walpole's novel centers around the tyrant where the female writers in the genre, for example, Ann Radcliffe, focus more on the female victim and what she is thinking and feeling, exploring women’s anxieties about their lack of control of their feelings, their bodies, and their property, and their desire for something far more extraordinary and exciting than simply to be a domestic woman.
