Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen

Jane Austen wrote that in her novels she painted the world on a “little bit (two inches wide) of ivory,” working “with so fine a brush.” Her well-known books, such as Pride and Prejudice and Emma, display the power of this approach; her observations about human nature have proven so accurate and entertaining that her books continue to be beloved 200 years after they were written. 

Inside you will listen to:

  • A young writer emerges
  • Austen’s romances
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Jane’s mysterious illness
  • Last days and death
  • And much more!

Jane Austen’s life contains the seeds of her novels - the events, people, and places that inspired her as she created her stories. Here you will discover how Austen’s writing and life developed in parallel, from her teenaged Juvenilia to her unfinished last work The Brothers (published posthumously as Sanditon).
