The many film and TV adaptations of Austen’s novels in recent years show that these works have a universal and lasting appeal. We take a fresh look at Austen’s most popular novel, Pride and Prejudice, and her last completed work, Persuasion, in the context of her life and times, and consider which (sometimes surprising!) aspects of her personality emerge from her letters.
