Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)

  Sir Walter Scott wrote of Austen: "That young lady had a talent for describing the involvements, feelings and characters of ordinary life which is to me the most wonderful I have ever met with."  W.S. Maugham wrote of her: "She wrote very muh the same sort of story in all her books...and she was interested not in the uncommon, but in the common.  She made it uncommon by the keenness of her observation, her irony and her playful wit...[W]hen you come to the bottom of a page,  you eagerly turn it to learn what will happen next."
