Summary

Ever since William Caxton set his first printing presses rolling in the 15th century, the demand for truly Great Writers has always exceeded supply. Nevertheless there are a select few who richly deserve this much-coveted title, although no two people will ever agree on whom the accolade should be awarded to because we all have our own particular favourites.
But one name that appears with great regularity is Jane Austen, the author of such classics as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. With 21st-century film adaptations of her novels, and the life story of Jane Austen herself, proving to be hugely successful, her writing is as popular today as when she first put pen to paper, more than 200 years ago.
So what is it that makes Jane Austen a Great Writer? Step back in time and enter the elegant chapter of history known as the Regency period and find the "lady" who breathed life into such sparkling characters as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, who have in turn gone on to inspire more recent romantic novelists to follow in Jane Austen's footsteps. Whether you're a Jane Austen fan or simply looking to discover more about this incredible writer, this programme has something to suit every taste and you will quickly realise just how precious a legacy she has left behind.
This audiobook is based on the DVD of the same name.
