Jane Austen and Charles Dickens - Author

About the Author

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) wrote six famous books including Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. Despite being only moderately successful in her lifetime, her six novels are famous and have been adapted for television and film on numerous occasions.

Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870) was the author of classics such as Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol and A Tale of Two Cities. His first commercial success was The Pickwick Papers  which became a publishing phenomenon and was easily the most widely read literary work in English to that date. Such is his enduring legacy that none of his books have ever gone out of print.
