Jane Austen, who was one of the greatest British novelists, left six major novels along with other writings of her youth. Her novels, unquestionably, had affected many readers and gave herself an influential role in literature. It was believed that Jane Austen had been influenced deeply by Samuel Richardson, who was famous for his epistolary novels. In Austen's early writings and also her early novels, they were obviously presented in the epistolary forms. Pride and Prejudice (1813) is not only her most renowned novel but also includes the greatest numbers of letters among her novels. In addition, the letter was an indispensable means in Austen's time, and she wrote everything in letters. In this thesis, I concentrate on two texts, Jane Austen's extant letters and also Pride and Prejudice. I try to find the common connections between the two materials. In the first chapter, I talk about the importance of letters. Letters can be used to maintain relationships. This can be seen from Jane Bennet and Elizabeth Bennet's, Mr. Darcy and his sister's cases. Likewise, Jane Austen's relationship with her sister, Cassandra Austen can also be found through letters. In addition, there are other sophisticated manners of letters, such as replying letters and the length. In chapter two, I discuss how a person's personality can be shown clearly through letters. I analyze what Mr. Collins's, Lydia Bennet's and Jane Austen's own letters present, and the personality they show in this chapter. In the third chapter, I focus on the truth and the historical context in the letters. It can be divided into two kinds. One is the truth revealed directly by the contents of letters. The other shows the existence of wars. Jane Austen living in the wartime was found in her own letters and the novel. From these letters, we can see many details of Jane Austen's life and background and also comprehend the great parts of letters in the novel.
