Jane Austen: Her Life and Works

The 6 most polished, controlled and elegant social comedies to be found in English literature were written by a woman whose personal life was unexciting and confined. Jane Austen’s cool judgment, ironic detachment and her genius gave her novels depth and charm and made them some of the most popular novels ever!

Susannah Fullerton, President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia, shares her passion for Jane Austen’s novels and her interest in her life and times.
