Continuing the love!
Jane Austen remains one of the most popular authors ever! The romance of her novels and the strength of her woman characters endear her to woman around the world. 60 films have been made or have been inspired by her works including the very popular “Clueless”.
Jane’s life has been analyzed by so many. How much of her writing was influenced by her life? Well, isn’t that usually the case? Jane Austen wrote about class and love – both things she knew well.
