The setting of the book is from 1797 to 1815. It is set in Longbourn, in rural England. This was as the age of reason begins. Austen had soldiers in the books because the boys were about to ship off for war to fight America, or Napoleon. If the solider would not have been there Lydia could not disgraced the family. In addition, this is a time where women were supposed to listen to men and that the said, and because of this we see Elizabeth’s independent personality stronger than we would have.
