Jane Austen

Jane Austen, one of English literature’s most beloved authors, was born on this day in 1775.  Her novels are read and loved by people all over the world.  Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Emma are among her most popular works.  In the last decade or so there has been a massive surge in popularity for Austen’s novels. This has resulted in many films and television adaptations of her books.  Moreover, another sign of Austen’s popularity is the plethora of new stories based on her works (e.g. Longbourn), including some strange mash-ups (e.g. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), as well as many stories that are simply about the fans of Austen (e.g. Jane Austen Book Club).

My personal favourite among Austen’s novels is Pride and Prejudice.
