] Give me something to shut him up!
Jane Austen's books are still going strong 200 years after she wrote them, and they will still be going strong 200 years after we are all forgotten. Pride and Prejudice is on every list of the Greatest Novels ever Written variety. It has never been out of print.
Hollywood is spending big bucks to bring all her stories to life, and the movies are playing to sold out houses. The P&P2 television series broke records in England, and was A&E's most watched series ever.
Now would you please tell me what Jane Austen has left to prove?
