The Power of the Powerless Jane Austen

Analyze Mrs. Bennet and Mr. Wickham from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The common connection with these characters is that they both scheme to escape their powerlessness in the British social structure of the time period. Possible that the novel was Jane Austen’s own scheming to escape powerlessness and comment on that society?
