Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)
Jane Austen was an English novelist whose books, set amongst the English middle and upper classes, are notable for their wit, social observation and insights into the lives of early 19th century women. Jane Austen was born on 16 December 1775 in the village of Steventon in Hampshire. She was one of eight children of a clergyman and grew up in a close-knit family. She began to write as a teenager. In 1801 the family moved to Bath. After the death of Jane's father in 1805 Jane, her sister Cassandra and their mother moved several times eventually settling in Chawton, near Steventon. Jane's brother Henry helped her negotiate with a publisher and her first novel, 'Sense and Sensibility', appeared in 1811. Her next novel 'Pride and Prejudice', which she described as her "own darling child" received highly favourable reviews. 'Mansfield Park' was published in 1814, then 'Emma' in 1816. 'Emma' was dedicated to the Prince Regent, an admirer of her work. All of Jane Austen's novels were published anonymously.

        Boning up on received wisdom
        Sat, 03 Jul 2004
        What are they like
        Persuasion , by Jane Austen
        Pride and Prejudice , with its interchangeable Bennet sisters, over Persuasion and its subtle and slow-burning wit. Vanity Fair , its sprawl tidied and checked, this novel critiques and lampoons the very characters who consider themselves decisive, moral and wise, yet mark themselves as fair game for such mockery through their actions, preferences and muddle-headed advice. Standard Austenisms abound: multiple witnesses with multiple opinions; garrulous females and bluff servicemen; and a whiff of farce in the tortuous human relationships. Yet all the while that she strips her characters down to their social stereotypes, Austen displays such affection for them: tough love, disguised as deferential, throwaway remarks. This love prevents her criticisms from becoming callous, and strengthens her admonishment of her most foolish characters. Persuasion : every emperor finally stripped naked, divested of their new clothes, and only Wentworth and Elliot earning their figleaves and returning, prodigal and repentant, to their Eden.

    To me his prose is unreadablelike Jane Austin's [sic]. No there is a difference. I could read his prose on salary, but not Jane's. Jane is entirely impossible. It seems a great pity that they allowed her to die a natural death.

    She began writing in 1789. Her family life seemingly revolved completely around writing and vice versa. She never married but was intrigued by two different men during her lifetime. One was Tom Lefroy and the other was the Lord High Justice of Ireland. Beyond innocent flirtation, little is known about these relationships. Her novels were extraordinary but they were not without their own controversies. Her debut novel Sense and Sensibility became one of her more notorious works but it was followed by equally remarkable works. Jane Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion among others. Pride and Prejudice is still one of her more recognized works today. The majority of her novels did take on a particular era. Most of her novels were set in the Regency era. While Jane never married, she did have the innate ability to thoroughly describe the feelings of her characters and their relationships with others. She was able to draw her readers into her stories which were a somewhat new experience for the readers during her time. Few women authors had been able to achieve that particular task.

    Print this section Jane Austen (1775-1817), English novelist, noted for her witty studies of early-19th-century English society. With meticulous detail, Austen portrayed the quiet, day-to-day life of members of the upper middle class. Her works combine romantic comedy with social satire and psychological insight. Two common themes in Austen’s books are the loss of illusions—usually leading characters to a more mature outlook—and the clash between traditional moral ideals and the everyday demands of life. In most of her novels, her characters correct their faults through lessons learned as a result of tribulation. Because of her sensitivity to universal patterns of human behavior, many people regard Austen as one of the greatest novelists of the 19th and 20th centuries.

    Jane Austen (1775-1817) English novelist It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. JANE AUSTEN, Pride and Prejudice If one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere. JANE AUSTEN, Mansfield Park One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other. JANE AUSTEN, Emma How wonderful, how very wonderful the operations of time, and the changes of the human mind! JANE AUSTEN, Mansfield Park People always live for ever when there is an annuity to be paid them. JANE AUSTEN, Sense and Sensibility A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment. JANE AUSTEN, Pride and Prejudice Why not seize pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation! JANE AUSTEN, Emma Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us. JANE AUSTEN

    Jane Austen is often regarded as the greatest of English women novelists. Her novels are noted particularly for their sparkling social comedy and accurate vision of human relationships. Jane Austen was born on 16 th December 1775 at Steventon in Hampshire, England. She was the seventh child of a country parson. Her father, the Reverent George Austen, was an intelligent and sensitive man who encouraged Jane in her love of reading. From an early age she was familiar with the works of Henry Fielding, Sir Walter Scott and the poet George Crabbe. Her novels are as widely read today as they have ever been.

    Biographical note
    Considered one of the greatest English novelists, Austen's chief gift was to be a close observer of human society and social interaction. While her first novel, the posthumously published Northanger Abbey, pokes fun at the Gothic novels of Ann Radcliffe, Austen is most famous for her later works, which took the form of socially conscious comedies of errors. These, especially Emma, are often cited for their perfection of form, while modern critics continue to unearth new perspectives on Austen's keen commentary on the predicament of young, unmarried, upper-class English women in the early 1800s.

    Printer-friendly version of section Austen was born near Basingstoke, in the parish of Steventon, of which her father was rector. Jane was the youngest of seven children. The family was cultivated and prosperous, although not rich. Austen's great uncle was the Master of Balliol College, Oxford University, and her father, himself an accomplished scholar, taught her at home and encouraged her reading and her writing. She and her sister were sent briefly to the Abbey School in Reading. Austen acquired the standard accomplishments of young ladies of her class and time: she learnt French and Italian, could draw and sing well, and embroidered; she is recorded as having been “especially great in satin-stitch”. Less conventionally, she read widely and particularly enjoyed the novels of
