Product Description

Prof. Amanda Vickery returns to mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen s first novel Sense and Sensibility in probably the first film about Jane Austen that begins and ends in Texas, historian Amanda Vickery charts the surprising twists and turns that transformed a minor Regency writer into a global literary brand. On a journey from rural Hampshire, to the family home of Princess Di, from the trenches of the First World War to the lake where Colin Firth emerged in a wet shirt and on to a huge Jane Austen convention in Fort Worth, Vickery encounters Austen s audience over the last 200 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to Jane 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
This DVD is a fine history on the popularity of Jane Austen from first publication of "Sense and Sensibility" to the present day. "The many lovers" of the title refers to her readers throughout the world.

I was surprised at just how much I didn't know about Jane and her writing: that she was read avidly in the trenches of the first World War, that a Cambridge University professor and his wife played a vital role, that the BBC first adapted "Pride and Prejudice" as a Sunday tea-time serial and what the Bronte sisters thought of Jane's work to mention just a few of the interesting facts included.

If you're interested in Austen you'll love this and if you want to find out what makes Austen so very popular here is the answer.

A "must have" DVD along with "Pride and Prejudice-having a ball".

5.0 out of 5 stars TO all JANEITE,S 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase
If like George Sainsbury in 1824 you love Jane's work,s and are a Janeite, and you like the period atmosphere of her novels, combining this with Holly Ivins book The Jane Austen Bible, you can piece together many interesting facts relating to this great woman's life.
