JANE AUSTEN was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously. DEBORAH LUTZ is an Associate Professor at Long Island University, C.W. Post. Her books include Relics of Death in Victorian Literature and Culture; The Bronte Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects; The Dangerous Lover: Gothic Villains, Byronism, and the Nineteenth-Century Seduction Narrative; and Pleasure Bound: Victorian Sex Rebels and the New Eroticism.
