I am proud to say that after countless hours of staring, intense research, blood, sweat, and tears did I discover that this is an “Annotated Biblography”. I laughed really hard when I found out, aka in my bedroom at 2:00 AM. Even though I woke up my sister and she scolded me (Thanks Crystal), it was totally worth the realization and I can safely say, I regret nothing.
Anyways, back to the subject. Jane Austen, you are one mysterious lady. Almost every website I visited on my eminent 2014 journey had the exact same information as the website before. Seeing as Jane was born in the 1700s and died in the early 1800s, at the age of 41, I understand why there is not much information on her. But nonetheless, I was able to find some sources with information:
Wikipedia! Everyone’s favorite website to start from! This Wikipedia page of Jane Austen features most of the information you can find about her. From small facts to the limited stories of her childhood, Wikipedia is the way to go.
This website is a general timeline of Jane Austen’s life. It features important events in her life and big accomplishments, providing the days of the week when possible. The timeline extends past her death until 1870, about 50 years after she died.
(From the same website as the one above)
This site tells the timeline in a 2 page story like format, focusing on the more important events and going into fuller details. It gives more insight into Jane Austen’s childhood and the possible key factors leading up to her being an author.
This is, yet again, another brief biography of Jane’s life, but focuses more on her writing and novels then her personal life. It shows the dates of when she wrote each novel and tells the story of what happens with her unpublished novels after her death.
This website features a short section on what happened after Jane’s death and how her unpublished books were brought to the public. The site also contains information on how Jane’s books came back to popularity after years of being out stock.
