Sense and Sensibility was published anonymously. Most readers only knew that the book was written by a Lady.Of course, we now know that the author of this novel was Jane Austen who went on to write Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and other works. In 1929, Virginia Woolf would speculate in A Room of One's Own: I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman. In the case of Sense and Sensibility at least, Woolf was decidedly right on target.
