Jane Austen ( 1775 - 1817 )  Category ( Writers ) [suggest a correction]
 

Jane Austen was an English novelist. She was born in 1775. She was one of the children of the Reverend George Austen. She had siblings and they all grew up together with the exception of a brother who had a disability so he didn’t live with them.

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.

Jane Austen was young when she died. She is believed to have suffered from Addison’s disease. It was a disease seen frequently in the patients who were fighting tuberculosis so that too, was said to be one of the possible reasons for her death. Others believe that Austen died from breast cancer. It was never fully determined Jane Austen’s cause of death. Regardless of the cause, she died early and could’ve achieved more if she’d only lived longer.
