"Jane Austen is one of the best known and most celebrated authors of British literature, inspiring legions of fans across the globe.

Today, Austen is more popular than ever, with fans often self-opprobriously identifying as ‘Janeites.’ This cultural movement could even be said to be the very first literary ‘subculture’, inspiring societies, events, and scholarship around the globe. With this popularity in mind, we thought it was a good time to test your knowledge of Jane Austen’s novels and characters — with a quiz based on the author’s lesser-known quotations. How well do you really know Austen’s writings..?"

Test your knowledge >
