Born on 16 December 1775, Jane Austen is a renowned author who is best known for her work, Pride, and Prejudice. Several months after her birth, Jane Austin was given a public baptism. Instead of being brought up by her mother, Jane Austin was instead taken to live with their neighbor, Elizabeth Littlewood, who took care of Austin for more than a year. In line with their family tradition, Jane Austen and her sister were taken to Oxford. Unfortunately, the two girls contacted typhus, which in turn had left Jane Austen to near death. Eventually, Jane Austen was sent back home to be educated. When she turned three years of age, Austen and her sister were once again sent to school, this time around to a boarding school. While at boarding school, Austen and her sister, Cassandra learned French, spelling, music, needlework and dancing as well. All this was considered a necessity for any girl.

As of December 1976, Jane was forced to return home, as their family did not have enough resources to educate the two. Thus, the remainder of Jane Austen’s education came from an amalgamation of impromptu tutelage from her father and brothers as well as reading. Their father encouraged both girls to not only read but also write as well by providing the two with limited access to his library as well as ensuring that the two had all the necessary writing materials. From the year 1787, Jane Austen began to pen down poems, plays, and stories as well. When she became an adult, Jane Austen remained at home and took part in all the activities that all the women her age were required to take. Some of the activities include attending church, playing the piano, socializing with her family, playing the piano, attending to all her female relatives during childbirth and supervising servants.
During this period, Jane Austen continued to write and read avidly as well. Jane Austen began to work on one of her earliest pieces, Sir Grandison, a comedic play, which she managed to complete in the year 1800. Not long after this, Jane Austen made up her mind to become a professional writer. She eventually turned from penning down satirical pieces to more sophisticated pieces. One of the pieces that Jane Austen began working on during this period is Lady Susan. Lady Susan featured one of the many Jane Austen’s female protagonists who were best known for their intelligence. A titular character normally refers to a sexual predator, who relies mainly on her cunning instead of her feminine wiles to not only betray but also manipulate everyone around her. Once Austen had finished working on Lady Susan, she began working Elinor and Marianne, her very first full-length novel.
Elinor and Marianne were later on published under a completely different name, Sense, and Sensibility. Sense and Sensibility became one of Jane Austen’s most famous works. With a brief break in between, Jane Austen immediately began working on First Impression, which eventually became one of the stories that she is also famous for, Pride and Prejudice. Sense and Sensibility feature the protagonists, Marianne and Elinor Dashwood, who suddenly become exceedingly poor after the premature death of their father.

Jane Austen Best Books
Jane Austen is famously known for the novel Pride and Prejudice. If you are looking for a book that comes with many silly rules and silly expectations, then Pride and Prejudice will meet your needs. Individuals of wealth and social station are expected to marry someone of a similar worth irrespective of the feelings involved. These individuals must marry someone with a similar social structure. In Pride and Prejudice, the author introduces the readers to Darcy, a man who is magnificently pissed. Darcy has fallen in love with a person who is considered to be somehow beneath him, thus declaring love for this person is considered to be beyond the realms of supposed pedigree. In other words, this is a form of social death. Thus, Darcy is a man who has been torn into two.
Darcy is not only a product of the society, but he is also affected by the societal values. Despite the fact that he hates whatever he has with Elizabeth, including the long sullen silences, the arrogant and moody exchanges, he still harbors deep feelings for her.
