Nowadays, Jane Austen is one of the world's most well known female authors. Just about everybody has heard of her books like Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility. But when her books were published for the first time, her name was not on the cover. In fact they were published bearing the anonymous pseudonym „By a Lady“. Her observations of the upper class english society at the end of the 18th century and her literary conception of emancipation and romantic love were not welcome everywhere. Still, she inspired a generation of young women, to question the world they live in. Even though, her books were already on the verge of becoming contemporary classics, to this day, Jane Austen's stories remain present in popular culture, not least because of many film adaptations.
