Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775-1817) is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most beloved English writers of all time. Best known for her six widely adapted novels—Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey—she used her writing to explore and critique British society and the constraints placed on women by social expectations and economic circumstances, especially in regards to love and marriage.
