Performers, Cast and Crew:
A personal look at the author of such classics as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility." Includes rare archives and documents.
"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "Jane Austen," viewers learn that the celebrated author not only wasn't part of London's lettered upper crest, but she even led an utterly routine life -- one consisting primarily of domestic obligations.
This personal context enriches the body of her work, because her novels cover the spectrum of human experience: birth, family, status, love, death. Austen accentuated these universal concerns with sharp wit and a lack of sentimentality.
