It’s the last day of March and the ending to the Women Authors Spotlight series for now. My full line up was Chimamanda Adichie, Toni Morrison, Monica Ali and I’m ending with, what I liked to call, a throwback author. I had to include her because if you haven’t read Jane Austen, you’ve been living under a rock. Her most notably novels: Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Pride and Prejudice, and Mansfield Park, just to name a few. I thought it interesting her name wasn’t well-known until after death since most of her novels were published anonymously. In addition, her novels didn’t conform to what was considered popular in her era, which I appreciate. I love when writers create their own rules and it works.
I appreciate her style of writing known for her satirical commentary. Many literary quotes derived from her works. Though, I haven’t read all of her novels my two favorites thus far are Pride and Prejudice and Emma. What are some of your favorites from Jane Austen? Who are some of your favorite women authors? Did you enjoy the series?
