About Jane Austen
Jane Austen was an English novelist best known for her legendary works of romantic fiction such as Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma and Pride and Prejudice, which is one of the most popular novels in English literature. Jane is widely regarded as one of the greatest English writers of all time.
She was the daughter of Cassandra and George Austen. She never married nor had any children. She had six brothers and a sister named Cassandra, who was also her closest friend. And just like Jane, Cassandra also never married.
At the time of her death, she was working on a new novel entitled The Brothers. She, however, died before completing the novel. Her family later published the book with a new title Sanditon.
