Ever since William Caxton set his first printing presses rolling in the 15th Century, the demand for truly Great Writers has always exceeded supply. Nevertheless there are a select few who richly deserve this much coveted title, although no two people will ever agree on whom the accolade should be awarded to because we all have our own particular favorites.But one name that appears with great regularity is Jane Austen, the author of such classics as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. With 21st Century film adaptations of her novels, and the life story of Jane Austen herself, proving to be hugely successful, her writing is as popular today as when she first put pen to paper, more than two hundred years ago.So, what is it that makes Jane Austen a Great Writer? Step back in time and enter the elegant period of history known as the Regency and find the 'Lady' who breathed life into such sparkling characters as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, who have in turn gone on to inspire more recent romantic novelists to follow in Jane Austen's footsteps.Britain boasts a rich heritage of great writers whose works have earned global fame and continue to remain firm favorites for readers worldwide. This wonderful collection of programs explores the lives and times of these authors, to find out what inspired them to bring us such classic works. This collection will provide fresh insights into the motivation and character of your favorite writer, and will let you experience a new way of looking at their work.

No Sound!!! As there seems to be no way to make a request for a refund regarding a video, I am writing it here in the hope that someone from Amazon will read it and take an action. Similar things have happened previously(e.g. billing me for a Prime 00.00 video). I have rated this item with one star because you cannot enter a review without a rating. Obviously, I would not have entered any stars were it not required.

boring, poorly done, not very informative. I wish I had paid attention to the rating before renting it. Not even worth $1.99

I am not usually fond of documentaries but this historical rendition of Jane Austen's life seemed to be more interesting that I usually find biographies. I guess I am just a Jan Austenoholic.
