Nee en 1775 et morte a 41 ans en 1817, Jane Austen, issue de la petite gentry anglaise, est connue pour sa critique mordante de la societe du XVIIIe siecle et pour son humour decale. Elle grandit dans une petite maison appellee "le presbytere" aupres d'un pere recteur, fermier et precepteur, de six freres et une soeur, dont elle restera tres proche toute sa vie. Cassandra, comme Jane, meurt sans etre mariee. Elle a toujours ete soutenue par sa famille dans sa carriere professionnelle. Son frere Henry lui servira meme d'agent litteraire. Elle commence a ecrire des poemes, des romans et des pieces de theatre pour sa famille a partir de 1787. Jusqu'a ses 25 ans, elle s'essaie a plusieurs formes litteraires, dont le roman epistolaire, qu'elle abandonne pour retravailler plus tard, en profondeur, trois de ses romans (SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, MANSFIELD PARK) et en ecrire un quatrieme (EMMA). NORTHANGER ABBEY et PERSUASION feront quant a eux l'objet de publications posthumes. On considere aujourd'hui que ce sont les romans de Jane Austen qui ont ouvert la voie au realisme litteraire du XIXe siecle.
