Jane Austen

Født 16. desember 1775 i Steventon i Hampshire i England.

Død 18. juli 1817 i Winchester.

Mest kjent for sine romantiske romaner. En av grunnene til at mange fremdeles leser Austens romaner er hennes framstående og humoristiske personskildringer. Romanenes bipersoner er ofte karikerte, men likevel levende.
