Jane Austen was a novelist whose books, set among the middle and upper classes in English society, have attained an enduring popularity and have been the subject of countless film and TV adaptations. Born in a small village in Hampshire, England, she was one of eight children of a clergyman. She began writing as a teenager, but it was not until 1811, when she was in her early thirties, that her first book, 'Sense and Sensibility' was published, followed by her classic novel, 'Pride and Prejudice' in 1813. This was followed by 'Mansfield Park'(1814) and 'Emma'(1816). All four books were published anonymously and two more, 'Persuasion' and 'Northanger Abbey', were published posthumously after her tragically early death in 1817. Her books attracted little attention during her life time and many years passed before she came to be seen as one the greatest English novelists of all time.

This collection contains:- Emma; Lady Susan and Other Works; Mansfield Park; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion; Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility.

About the Author:

One of England's most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen's work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen's writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen's request, her personal correspondence after Austen's death in 1817. Austen's authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.
