Order of Jane Austen Books
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English author of romantic fiction, best known for classics including Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Her works are full of social commentary that made her historically significant and kept her name alive almost two hundred years after her death. Not much is known about Jane as a person; even though she wrote 3,000 letters, only 160 still exist.
During her relatively short lifetime, Jane only had four novels published, along with a short story called Lady Susan, poems, letters, prayers and juvenilia that she wrote as a youth. Following her death, two novels – Northanger Abbey and Persuasion – were published. She also left two unfinished novels behind that have been finished many times over by fans. Below is a list of Jane Austen’s published works in order of when they were originally published:
