Jane Austen Sense & Sensibility tea towel

Throughout her 41 years Austen wrote just six novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, two of the most popular novels in the English language. These have been subject to two hundred years of analysis and re-reading. Austen's writing features strong female characters, and with realism, biting irony and social commentary, she explores the precarious economic situation in which women of the late 18th and early 19th centuries found themselves. 

Although celebrated now, Austen was little known while she was alive, publishing all her novels anonymously to avoid the backlash female novelists received for participating in a male-dominated profession. 

Here’s the perfect literary gift to celebrate one of the greats in English literature!
