Reading this quote anyone can guess who the author is I am talking about as this has been one of the most talked about quotations in English literature. This is the first line of Pride and Prejudice, the single line that encompasses the theme of the entire novel. And who can be more efficient in bringing out all the pages of a huge novel into one single line than the most successful 19th century Romantic fiction author- Jane Austen? Jane Austen, the English novelist, the most widely read romantic fiction author in English Literature is placed among the greatest authors in the world of literature. The list of her major works consist of- Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.
