Jane Austen, world renowned English author, had a particular talent for writing developed characters, many of them introverts. Beginning in 2016, 200 years after her novels were published, “good quiet Aunt Jane” — as described by her family and friends who understood her private, introverted nature — will be celebrated, quite publicly, on the reverse of the Bank of England’s new 10-pound note.
It is hereby announced that the reverse of the new Bank of England ten-pound note will bear the image of Jane Austen and her quote, “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!”
There is hope!
