Being immediately hailed as 'the masterwork of a great genius', Jane Eyre became a great success.
With the 19th century being regarded as one of great women writers, there were also some excellent male writers.
Can the 'being' in these two sentences be left out since the '-ed' form can serve as an adverbial with a passive meaning?
Could I ask native speakers to help me please? Thank you in advance.

Sorry I'm not a native speaker.
