Jane Austin

Today marks the 199th anniversary of the death of English novelist Jane Austen, who died at the relatively young age of 41 after publishing four novels. (Her final two, NORTHANGER ABBEY and PERSUASION, were published posthumously.) Austen was little-known during her lifetime, and it was only decades after her death that critics began to give her the respect she still commands today.
