December 07, 2003
— Jane Austen was born on this day in 1775 at Steventon near Bassingstroke, Hampshire (England), the seventh child of the rector of the parish. As a girl she wrote stories, including burlesques of popular romances. Her novels have become enduring and beloved classics.

 

"Oh! It is only a novel! or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of with and humor are conveyed to the world in the best chosen language."  — Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey)
