Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) English novelist.
Known primarily for her 6 major novels (which have rarely been out of print), which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.
Austen had to publish all her books anonymously. The publisher Thomas Egerton agreed to publish Sense and Sensibility "on commission", that is, at the author's financial risk. She made £140 from this novel which provided her with some financial and psychological independence and due to its success all of her subsequent books were billed as written "By the author of Sense and Sensibility”. Her name never appeared on her books during her lifetime.
Austen died in Winchester on 18th July 1817 at the age of 41 and is buried in the north aisle of the nave of Winchester Cathedral.
