That really was interesting. I was tickled to discover that Jane Austen, usually thought of as a peerless prose writer, had great need of editorial help. See this http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...ryId=130838304

Of course, that hardly detracts from her ability to write very entertainingly -- here letters are testament to that -- but she wasn't as polished as everyone thought.
