Tribute to Jane,

This review is from: The Many Lovers Of Jane Austen [DVD] (DVD)
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".
