    Plot Fiction Like the Masters is an exercise in listening like a writer - listening with the purpose of figuring out how the plots of a few recognized masterpieces succeed in making one continue. The reason for proposing this as a way of learning plot-making is my own experience as a writer - that the most accomplished novelists are the greatest teachers and that their lessons may be drawn from a close study of their work. The three novels under consideration have all achieved astonishing success. They are all not only recognized masterpieces of their very different genres.

    The literary canon is filled with intelligent, feisty, never-say-die heroines, and legendary female authors. Like today’s women, they too placed a premium on personality, spirituality, career, sisterhood, and family. When their backs were against the wall, characters like Scarlett O’Hara, Jo March, Jane Eyre, and Elizabeth Bennet fought back - sometimes with words, sometimes with gritty actions.

    Jane Austen is one of the most widely read British authors. Her realism and biting irony make for a very lively read, and the quality of her plots have earned her a high-ranking place into the hearts of scholars. Her greatest stories sparkled a wave of adaptations in the last decades, because of their touching modernity and the realism of their reflections on the attitude of women about marriage and social standing. "Pride and Prejudice" has been called the second most beloved book of all British production; "Sense and Sensibility", "Mansfield Park", and "Emma" are also seminal works which have inspired countless readers.
