Jane Austen is well-known for some famous books, among them the popular “Pride and Prejudice.” As an author in the early 1800s, many people may envision pretty dresses and fancy demeanor, but the reality of her life included some hardships that may not be so obvious by reading her novels.

In this comprehensive guide, we shed more light on her situation, her road to success, her family life, and the trials she faced in a time when the culture was very different. The roles of men and women, the interaction between parents and children, and the economic situation can be unimaginable for us, if we don’t try to expose enough details and paint a detailed picture of that era in history.

Jane’s literature has made a serious impact on today’s book market, the movie industry, and so much more. Let’s slide back the curtain, and reveal the making of a talented, now-famous author!
