    Who Was Jane Austen?

    • A young girl who loved to write
    • A beloved English author whose work poked gentle fun at the world around her
    • An eighteenth-century woman whose books are more popular today than they ever were in her own lifetime

    Step into the world of Georgian England and learn more about the genteel life of this beloved author.

    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 Northanger Abbey remain her most famous works. Who Was Jane Austen? reveals the life of this most private author.
