Jane Austen (Steventon, December 16, 1775 – Winchester, July 18, 1817) was an important British novelist who lived during the Regency period. The irony used to provide laughter to her novels made that Jane Austen was counted among the “classics” of the English novel.
She was born in Steventon (Hampshire). Her family belonged to the agrarian bourgeoisie, context in which she always stayed and where she placed all her work, always around the marriage of his main character. The candor of Austen’s works, however, is merely apparent, although it can be interpreted in several ways. Academics have always considered her a conservative writer while the current feminist criticism points out that her work can be seen as a novelization of the thought of Mary Wollstonecraft on education of women.
Her work have been filmed at different times, sometimes accurately reproduced, as the classic Pride and Prejudice 1940 and others, making adaptations to the present time, such as Clueless, free adaptation of Emma, or Sense and Sensibility, 1995; Mansfield Park, 2000, and versions of Pride and Prejudice in 2004 (directed by Gurinder Chadha) and in 2005 (directed by Joe Wright). The interest that the work of Jane Austen continues to attract in these days shows the relevance of her thought and the influence it has had on later literature. Her life has also been made into a film with the film Becoming Jane (2007).
In 1791, with just 16 years old, she already had a good amount of stored pieces. Her early works were characterized by a length which was shorter than her mature works, and for being told in plain, easy and free English free of many ornaments that writers in that time used to apply.
According to her niece Louisa Knight, Austen wished she could had written less and read more. Some of Jane Austen’s pieces were not published during her life; they were edited by the same Austen and published posthumously.
