Jane Austen Country When Jane Austen, the daughter of a country clergyman, was born in the picturesque village of Steventon in Hampshire in December 1775, few people could have guessed the impact she would have on the world of literature. With just six completed novels. "Sense and Sensibility", "Pride and Prejudice", "Mansfield Park", "Emma", "Persuasion", and "Norhtanger Abbey". Jane Austen is one of that rare collection of classic authors to have remained popular throughout the ages. Bronte Country Bronte Country is a term often used to describe the uniquely beautiful corner of England where the great literary sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte lived and drew inspiration for their novels. The parsonage museum, in Haworth, West Yorkshire was home to the Bronte family and its from this atmospheric, grey stone house that our journey into Bronte Country will begin. Step back in time and wander the steep cobbled streets of Haworth where the Bronte sisters walked regularly, going about their everyday lives. Shakespeare Country William Shakespeare, probably the greatest dramatist the world has ever known. Shakespeare Country will take you on a journey, not only through the life of the great band of Avon, but also across the beautiful Warwickshire countryside that he knew, loved and never forgot his whole life long.
