About this product
- DescriptionOver the last 200 years, the vels 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 vels, from rural Hampshire to fashionable Bath Spa. Chapters on each of her vels run throughout the book and place them in the context of her life. For such a rewned velist, there is remarkably little direct material available, but this volume draws on archives for a truly insightful view.
