Jane Austen 200

As well as her six novels and two collections of her shorter works, here are great books that inspired Austen; were influenced by her; or can even be read as creative reactions against her, like Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. We've also included a few books by authors who, like Austen, were masters of comic writing, such as Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, as well as other perennial classics by Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, H. G. Wells and many more. We hope you and your students enjoy this celebration of the extraordinary Jane Austen.

We have also put together some resources you can use with your students, and you can download for free below.
