'Jon Spence's 'Becoming Jane Austen' is one of the best half-dozen books published on Austen in the last quarter century.'

'This is a book full of wisdom about [Jane Austen] and her art.'

Joseph Wiesenfarth, JASNA News --Sanford Lakoff

'Becoming Jane Austen' is a good, traditional biography. Clearly written, jargon-free and pleasant to read, it covers familiar ground without any sense of fatigue and makes the most of the material.' Peter Washington, The Literary Review--Sanford Lakoff

'Jon Spence has given us the most cogent portrait of Jane Austen's literary life to date.' Julia Barrett, author of 'Presumption', 'The Third Sister' and 'Jane Austen's "Charlotte"', British Heritage Magazine--Sanford Lakoff "British Heritage "

'It is the small incidents that Jon Spence puts under the microscope in his entertaining and sensitive biography.' 'Jon Spence is painstaking, delicate, full of insight - a somehow fitting, friendly biographer.' Joceline Bury, Jane Austen's Regency World Magazine--Sanford Lakoff

'Jon Spence's book has all the virtues of a well-researched and original study. Hard to write anything new about Jane Austen these days, but Spence, in his own quiet and unobtrusive way, has done it.' John Bayley--Sanford Lakoff

Synopsis:

Jon Spence's fascinating biography paints an intimate portrait of Jane Austen. "Becoming Jane Austen" gives the fullest account we have of her falling in love with the charming young Irishman Tom Lefroy, a relationship that was more serious and enduring than previously believed and one that had a profound effect upon her life and her art. The elegant narrative examines Austen's other emotional attachments, building a picture of her world as she herself perceived and experienced it. It is a world familiar to us from her novels, but in "Becoming Jane Austen", Jane herself is the heroine.

Book Description Hambledon & London. Paperback. Condition: New. 312 pages. Dimensions: 7.6in. x 4.9in. x 1.0in.Jon Spences fascinating biography of Jane Austen paints an intimate portrait of the much-loved novelist. Spences meticulous research has, perhaps most notably, uncovered evidence that Austen and the charming young Irishman Tom Lefroy fell in love at the age of twenty and that the relationship inspired Pride and Prejudice, one of the most celebrated works of fiction ever written. Becoming Jane Austen gives the fullest account we have of the romance, which was more serious and more enduring than previously believed. Seeing this love story in the context of Jane Austens whole life enables us to appreciate the profound effect the relationship had on her art and on subsequent choices that she made in her life. Full of insight and with an attentive eye for detail, Spence explores Jane Austens emotional attachments and the personal influences that shaped her as a novelist. His elegant narrative provides a point of entry into Jane Austens world as she herself perceived and experienced it. It is a world familiar to us from her novels, but in Becoming Jane Austen, Austen herself is the heroine. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
