The Duchess




This is another of my favorite movies. I love the fashions and the style of the era

Jane Austen



http://becomingjane.blogspot.com/


Jane Austen was born on 16 December 1775 in Steventon, Hampshire.
In 1789 she wrote her first novel, Love and Friendship (intentional mis-spell), amongst other very amusing juvenile. In Dec 1795/Jan 1796, she met Thomas Langlois Lefroy, an Irishman who would often be considered an important part of her life. In 1811, Austen's first novel Sense and Sensibility was published anonymously ('By a Lady'). Pride and Prejudice was published in 1813 and received instant popularity. Despite her romantic novels, the writer herself never married. In early 1816, Austen suffered an illness (either Addison or Hodgkin Disease), and on 18 July 1817, she died at the age of forty-one in the arms of her sister, Cassandra, and was buried in Winchester Cathedral.
