    Researchers trying to piece together her literary influences and symbols in her novels have read through the library’s catalog in order to see the books that would have been there during her lifetime. Not only was the library a haven for Austen, the rest of her family spent a majority of their time in that location as well(¶ 5). This shows that she was shown a love of literature from a young age since it was something her family enjoyed too. In letters she had written to other family members and…
