Jane Austen

Picture of Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) Austen was the daughter of a rector and the sixth child of seven siblings.
She never married nor did anything else out of the ordinary. Water Scott said she had that exquisite touch which renders ordinary commonplace things and characters interesting. Austen was an author of romantic novels who lived in the late eighteenth to nineteenth century. Her novels were very popular in her time and they continue to have appeal.
They are also used as school texts. Her depiction of the landed gentry and her style of writing captures a point in time that will never be repeated or portrayed so delicately. Sense and Sensibility is Austen's first novel. The sketch on the right by Jane's sister, Cassandra, is the only known depiction of Jane Austen from her own time.

Book Review:

This is a comedy of manners where you do not quite know if Jane Austen is being serious at all. Just when you start to believe she is making a serious point she puts the brake on. She does, however, paint a stoic picture of the culyure of the time where Elizabeth's mother is anxious that her four daughters are married off, to no matter whom.
