Jane Austen, an Amazing Romance writer

Pride and Prejudice and we always have Jane Austen's name on our lips but it's a Bollywood treat she gets in 21st century movies with the Bride and Prejudice - a movie performed by Aishwarya Rai and Martin Henderson.

Jane Austen was an amazing romance writer and the characters and feelings reach indepth as we read through the pages. Emma was Jane's fourth and last book she wrote, published a year ago before she died. In 1815, 2000 copies were printed and she earned less than 40 pounds then. Though, it earned more after her death.

The six volume set of Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen is a best pick for the Literature fans. It has all works; Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and persuasion and Minor works. Here's the Oxford University Press site and click to India site too.
