    Jane Austen's career as a novelist began in with the publication of Sense and Sensibility. Her work was finally adapted for the big screen with the filming of Pride and Prejudice (very successful at the box office). No other film adaptation of an Austen novel was made for theatrical release until quotes from Jane Austen: 'The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.', 'There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.', and 'I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!

      At the time of publication, the longevity of Jane Austen's fifth novel Emma was far from guaranteed. And yet, years later, it now seems immortal. This is the story of its remarkable life. Jane Austen: Her Life. New York: St. Martin’s Press, reprint edition A very detailed biography of Austen with a focus on the events of her life rather than a discussion of her books. The biography includes extensive discussion of Austen’s family and how her relationship with them was a major influence throughout her life. Laski, Margaret.

      The critical and commercial success of the numerous recent film and television adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels, including nine of Pride and Prejudice, testifies to her timeless and universal appeal. Yet they fail to fully capture the genius of her writing.   # Becoming Jane Austen By Jon Spence. Goodreads Summary: “Jon Spence’s fascinating biography of Jane Austen paints an intimate portrait of the much-loved novelist. Spence’s meticulous research has, perhaps most notably, uncovered evidence that Austen and the charming young Irishman Tom Lefroy fell in love at the age of twenty and that.
