Once upon a time, in the 1800th century, a young English woman named Jane Austen began to publish her romance novels. Over the centuries, these novels became very, very popular. Among these books are Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma, along with a few more. Austenmania refers to the fact that these books, especially Pride and Prejudice, have become the model for most romance novels today and that we still make movies and remakes of it. Despite most of the public being ignorant of the existence of Ms. Austen, our culture is riddled with her influence.
We will never, ever get rid of Austenmania. The Austen is ingrained in our souls.
