Jane Austen
Jane Austen: The Banker's Sister | E. J. Clery
7 posts | 1 read | 5 to read
When it was announced that Jane Austen would appear on the new 10 note in 2017, few were aware that a 10 Austen banknote already existed - issued by her favourite brother. Handsome, clever and enterprising, Henry Austen founded a bank business and charmed his way into the top rank of aristocratic society before going spectacularly bust in the financial crash of 1816. He left an enduring legacy, however, for it was Henry who supported Jane's dream of becoming a published author. Literary critic and cultural historian E. J. Clery presents a radically new vision of the much-loved novelist, revealing how her works were shaped by an acute awareness of the economic scandals, crises and speculations that marked the Regency era. Jane Austen: The Banker's Sister provides a fascinating reappraisal of the political connections and economic interests of the Austen family, and an engaging exploration of the bond between brother and sister. It will change the way Jane Austen's life and novels are understood.

Income is different from inheritance. Emma‘s annual income would be calculated as 5% of her inheritance.

Thanks Emma @austeneconomics for sharing this on Twitter!
