A B O U T T H E AU T H O R Jane Austen was born in 1775 to George and Cassandra Austen. She was raised in the village of Steventon, where her father was an Oxford-educated clergyman who supplemented his income with proceeds from farming. Jane Austen was the seventh of eight children including her. Jane was closest with her only sister Cassandra and elder brother Henry, who also served as her literary agent. Jane and her sister Cassandra were sent briefly to boarding school. She also read extensively in her father’s library. By 1787, Jane was keeping notebooks of her writings and her stories were read aloud to her family who encouraged her work. By the age of 23, she had created drafts of the books that would become Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice. In 1795, Jane began spending time with Tom Lefroy, the nephew of some neighbors, and a law student. Both families noticed the pair’s growing attachment and felt an engagement would be impractical since Tom was being supported by his family until completing his studies and Jane’s family could not offer a sufficient marriage settlement to make the match. Lefroy’s family sent him away and the pair did not see each other again. Austen’s father retired in 1800 and the family moved to Bath. In 1802, Austen accepted a proposal from Harris Big-Wither, the wealthy brother of her friend, only to retract it the next day because, while it was a prudent match, she did not love him. Her father died in 1805 and Austen, her mother and her elder sister Cassandra lived in a small house in Chawton, which was provided by her brother. Jane Austen died on July 18, 1817 at age 41after a protracted illness. Pride and Prejudice 3
