Jane Austen is a British writer, who is often referred to as the woman who has shaped the way modern novels look like. She was the one to introduce ordinary life of regular people into her books. Jane Austen wrote 6 major works that all focus on the role of women in the society and their dependence on men. She herself was never married, she never had her own house or let alone room, but her social life was intense and she was full of romantic dreams. Jane started writing at the age of 14 years old, mostly letters on small pieces of paper where she described the events and people she saw around her.
