Even after two hundred years of her passing, Jane Austen is still everywhere, often where one least expects to find her. Austen has firmly joined Shakespeare not just as a canonical figure but as a symbol of Literature itself, the hazel-eyed woman in the mobcap as iconic now as the balding man in the doublet.

Two centuries is a long time to be contemporary, long enough for us to wonder what exactly keeps readers still loving her works. Maybe it is the yearning to escape modernity: Austen is “congenial to the modern person who feels himself ill-accommodated by his own time.” No one has made spiritedness more compelling, and no one has taken more care to hedge it with such perfect control.  If you are still to become a Jane Austen fan, may we suggest you start with Emma or my personal favourite, Pride and Prejudice?
