Born in 1775 in Steventon, Rectory, Hampshire, Jane Austen belonged to an upper middle class family and enjoyed all comforts. She and her sister Cassandra had their first lessons from their mother. Schooling in Oxford, South Hampton and at Abbey School. Jane at the age of nine and Cassandra at the age of 11 were back home. Both enjoyed reading poetry and great works of Shakespeare. At the age of 12, Jane Austen looked better than a tomboy. Initially she started writing short humorous stories. Her first full length novel titled „ Elinor and Marianne‟ started in her late teens. At the age of 22, she wrote „ First Impressions‟ and later „Pride and Prejudice‟. Jane Austen has portrayed in her novel things like niceties of decorum, petty jealousies, vanity and affection. She has dealt with the superficialities of life.

„Pride and Prejudice‟ is the most interesting novel and the most popular because of its interesting plot, a rich comedy, supreme theme, the sparkling life of characters, a freshness of the scenery. A year or two later, she completed „Susan‟ which was retitled „Northanger Abbey‟. Family circumstances made her leave Steventon and go to Bath.

Like Casandra, Jane also had a love affair with a doctor but it ended in a tragedy. After her father‟s death in 1805, she got support of her brother Edward and began a comfortable life with a renewed interest.
