Jane Austen () was an English author known primarily for her six major novels set among the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Considered defining works of the Regency Era and counted among the best-loved classics of English literature, Austen’s books include Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield. Jane Austen is recognized as one of the most important English writers of her time. She's probably most famous for her novel Pride and Prejudice, but others like Mansfield Park, are very popular. Her books largely dealt with themes of love and a woman's role in the home. While many readers try to relegate Austen to the realms of early "chick lit," her books are important to the literary canon.

She was the second daughter and seventh child in a family of eight—six boys and two girls. Her closest companion throughout her life was her elder sister, Cassandra; neither Jane.
