T hey both come together to have somewhat similar themes, making the moral of the story mentally powerful. Charlotte Brontë, the eldest in the family, had always been interested in writing. After her mother died, she was left to take care of her other four siblings. She was born on April 21, 1816 in Thornton, Yorkshire, England. She wasn’t born the eldest child, there were six children in totality: Maria, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne.
Catherine Morland's coming of age hinges on her ability to become a better reader of both novels and people. Austen first introduces Catherine as an unlikely heroine: "No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy, would have supposed her born to be [a] heroine" (13). This is the introductory line of Austen's first book, giving the reader the responsibility to realize this is a novel by stating Catherine's heroism. This is important for the reader to understand because Catherine, who loves to read fiction, considers herself to be a heroine in a gothic novel. Therefore, this sets the tone of the story as the reader recognizes the metaphorical gap between the ideal fictional heroine and the flawed Catherine Morland.
