Jane Austen grew up to become the greatest woman writer in the English language. Unlike most brilliant artists, though, she wasnt rebellious or moody. In fact, quiet, neat, well-mannered Jane was so much less demanding than her more forceful brothers and sisters that she tended to be overlooked. Even when she showed clear signs of her genius, no one took any notice. As far as her parents were concerned, the only hope for their daughter was that she should marry, as soon and as well as possible. But Jane was disgusted at the idea that she should just hook a man for his money. Marriage, in her view, had to be for love, and nothing else. And it was her own quest for true romance that provided such rich material for her books
