When Austen became an aunt for the first time at age eighteen, she sent new-born niece Fanny-Catherine Austen-Knight "five short pieces of For niece Jane-Anna-Elizabeth Austen also born in Jane Austen wrote "two more 'Miscellanious [sic] Morsels', dedicating them to [Anna] on 2 June , 'convinced that if you seriously attend to them, You will derive from them very important Instructions, with regard to your Conduct in Life.

Between and aged eighteen to twenty Austen wrote Lady Susan , a short epistolary novel , usually described as her most ambitious and sophisticated early work. Austen biographer Claire Tomalin describes the novella's heroine as a sexual predator who uses her intelligence and charm to manipulate, betray and abuse her lovers, friends and family. Tomalin writes:. Told in letters, it is as neatly plotted as a play, and as cynical in tone as any of the most outrageous of the Restoration dramatists who may have provided some of her inspiration It stands alone in Austen's work as a study of an adult woman whose intelligence and force of character are greater than those of anyone she encounters.

According to Janet Todd, the model for the title character may have been Eliza de Feuillide, who inspired Austen with stories of her glamorous life and various adventures. Eliza's French husband was guillotined in ; she married Jane's brother Henry Austen in He had just finished a university degree and was moving to London for training as a barrister.

Lefroy and Austen would have been introduced at a ball or other neighbourhood social gathering, and it is clear from Austen's letters to Cassandra that they spent considerable time together: "I am almost afraid to tell you how my Irish friend and I behaved. Imagine to yourself everything most profligate and shocking in the way of dancing and sitting down together.

Austen wrote in her first surviving letter to her sister Cassandra that Lefroy was a "very gentlemanlike, good-looking, pleasant young man". My tears flow as I write at this melancholy idea". Halperin cautioned that Austen often satirised popular sentimental romantic fiction in her letters, and some of the statements about Lefroy may have been ironic. However, it is clear that Austen was genuinely attracted to Lefroy and subsequently none of her other suitors ever quite measured up to him. Marriage was impractical as both Lefroy and Austen must have known. Neither had any money, and he was dependent on a great-uncle in Ireland to finance his education and establish his legal career.

If Tom Lefroy later visited Hampshire, he was carefully kept away from the Austens, and Jane Austen never saw him again. Her sister remembered that it was read to the family "before " and was told through a series of letters. Without surviving original manuscripts, there is no way to know how much of the original draft survived in the novel published anonymously in as Sense and Sensibility. Austen began a second novel, First Impressions later published as Pride and Prejudice , in She completed the initial draft in August , aged 21; as with all of her novels, Austen read the work aloud to her family as she was working on it and it became an "established favourite".

Cadell returned Mr. Austen's letter, marking it "Declined by Return of Post". Austen may not have known of her father's efforts. Crosby promised early publication and went so far as to advertise the book publicly as being "in the press", but did nothing more. In December George Austen unexpectedly announced his decision to retire from the ministry, leave Steventon, and move the family to 4, Sydney Place in Bath.

She was able to make some revisions to Susan , and she began and then abandoned a new novel, The Watsons , but there was nothing like the productivity of the years — The years from to are something of a blank space for Austen scholars as Cassandra destroyed all of her letters from her sister in this period for unknown reasons.

She and her sister visited Alethea and Catherine Bigg, old friends who lived near Basingstoke. Their younger brother, Harris Bigg-Wither, had recently finished his education at Oxford and was also at home. Bigg-Wither proposed and Austen accepted. However, Austen had known him since both were young and the marriage offered many practical advantages to Austen and her family. He was the heir to extensive family estates located in the area where the sisters had grown up.

With these resources, Austen could provide her parents a comfortable old age, give Cassandra a permanent home and, perhaps, assist her brothers in their careers. By the next morning, Austen realised she had made a mistake and withdrew her acceptance. Anything is to be preferred or endured rather than marrying without Affection". All of her heroines In , while living in Bath, Austen started, but did not complete her novel, The Watsons. The story centres on an invalid and impoverished clergyman and his four unmarried daughters.

Sutherland describes the novel as "a study in the harsh economic realities of dependent women's lives". Her father's relatively sudden death left Jane, Cassandra, and their mother in a precarious financial situation. Edward, James, Henry, and Francis Austen known as Frank pledged to make annual contributions to support their mother and sisters. They spent part of the time in rented quarters in Bath before leaving the city in June for a family visit to Steventon and Godmersham.

They moved for the autumn months to the newly fashionable seaside resort of Worthing , on the Sussex coast, where they resided at Stanford Cottage. In the family moved to Southampton , where they shared a house with Frank Austen and his new wife. A large part of this time they spent visiting various branches of the family.

On 5 April , about three months before the family's move to Chawton, Austen wrote an angry letter to Richard Crosby, offering him a new manuscript of Susan if needed to secure the immediate publication of the novel, and requesting the return of the original so she could find another publisher. She did not have the resources to buy the copyright back at that time, [92] but was able to purchase it in Jane, Cassandra and their mother moved into Chawton cottage on 7 July The Austens did not socialise with gentry and entertained only when family visited.

Her niece Anna described the family's life in Chawton as "a very quiet life, according to our ideas, but they were great readers, and besides the housekeeping our aunts occupied themselves in working with the poor and in teaching some girl or boy to read or write. At the time, married British women did not have the legal power to sign contracts, and it was common for a woman wishing to publish to have a male relative represent her to sign the contract.

During her time at Chawton, Jane Austen published four generally well-received novels. Through her brother Henry, the publisher Thomas Egerton agreed to publish Sense and Sensibility , which, like all of Jane Austen's novels except Pride and Prejudice , was published "on commission", that is, at the author's financial risk.


If a novel did not recover its costs through sales, the author was responsible for them. Reviews were favourable and the novel became fashionable among young aristocratic opinion-makers; [] the edition sold out by mid Austen's novels were published in larger editions than was normal for this period. The small size of the novel-reading public and the large costs associated with hand production particularly the cost of handmade paper meant that most novels were published in editions of copies or less to reduce the risks to the publisher and the novelist.

Even some of the most successful titles during this period were issued in editions of not more than or copies and later reprinted if demand continued. Austen's novels were published in larger editions, ranging from about copies of Sense and Sensibility to about 2, copies of Emma.
