Who Was Jane Austen?Book - 2017
Although Jane Austen's works were first published anonymously and brought her little personal recognition, today they are rarely out of print and have inspired movies, television shows and mini-series, literary anthologies, and many other adaptations all around the world. Her writing-principally her five novels-is a critique of the British landed gentry at the end of the eighteenth century, and often a comment on the pursuit of a "good match" in matters of marriage. Pride and Prejudice , Sense and Sensibility , Mansfield Park , Emma , and Northhanger Abbey remain her most famous works. Who Was Jane Austen? reveals the life of this most private author.
