Jane Austen : Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels Hardback


Over the last 200 years, the novels of Jane Austen have been loved and celebrated across a diverse international readership.

As a result, there is a bottomless appetite for detail about the woman behind the writing.

Jane Austen traces her life and times; her relationships with family and friends; the attitudes and customs of the time that shaped her and were in turn shaped by her work; and the places where she lived, worked and set her novels, from rural Hampshire to fashionable Bath Spa.

Chapters on each of her novels run throughout the book and place them in the context of her life.

For such a renowned novelist, there is remarkably little direct material available, but this volume draws on archives for a truly insightful view.
