use of By in prepositions
This book is written by Jane Austen - why is it correct?
Your sentence is in the passive voice.
This book is written by Jane Austen.(Passive voice)
The book--> Subject of the sentence
is written--->verb phrase( is +past participle)
Jane Austen--> noun
Let me write the same sentence in the active voice to clear up your confusion.
Jane writes this book. (Active voice)
