Who Was Jane Austen?

1995 Jane Austen rated one of the 25 most interesting people of the year - even though she'd been dead since 1817. But films and TV illustrated her smart, funny and entertaining characters.

She had only a couple of years of 'schooloing' which finished when she was eleven. After that, she learned mainly from reading books in her (clergyman) father's library.

Her novels poked fun at the preoccupation of young women with getting a rich husband.
