Jane Austen, one of England's foremost novelists, was never publically acknowledged as a writer during her lifetime. She was born on December 16, 1775 and died on July 18, 1817. Austen's skilled use of irony, free indirect discourse, social commentary and memorable characterization has delighted readers for over 200 years.
