Jane Austen’s House

on July 4, 2014

 

Scan 5This lovely card comes from Richard in the UK and even had a Jane Austen stamp on it too! This museum in Hampshire celebrates the famous author, renowned for works such as Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. In a time when women’s rights were virtually non-existent, Jane Austen worked hard to raise awareness of female social standing through her works and although she didn’t ever achieve much fame in her life time has gone on to be one of England’s most celebrated authors.
