1775 - 1817



 
 

                   British novelist born in Steventon, Hampshire, England, whose literary work has given the English novel the first impulse to modernity, dealing with the everyday life of ordinary people with acute psychological insight and a style of subtle irony, disguised by the lightness of the narrative. The daughter of an Anglican priest, spent his entire life within a small social group, formed by the English gentry. At 17, she wrote her first novel, Lady Susan, a parody of the sentimental style of Samuel Richardson. His second book, Pride and Prejudice (1797), became his best known work, although initially it was frowned upon by publishers, which took awhile to be discriminated in the editorial. Then we managed to publish the novel Sense and Sensibility (1811), whose success led to the publication, even under a pseudonym, works previously refused. Still others came from blockbusters like Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816) in a less agile and humorous style, but gaining in serenity and wisdom, without losing his typical irony. He died in Winchester, one year before the publication of the works Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, a delightful satire, written in youth, gender truculent's gothic novel. His power of observation of daily life provided him with enough material to bring to life characters from his works, and critics considered it the first modern novelist in English literature.
