About this title


Book and dust jacket both in very good condition


In this sympathetic and probing biography, Park Honan enters the private world of Jane Austen to reveal experiences and observations she drew upon to write such masterpieces as "Pride and Prejudice", "Sense and Sensibility", "Persuasion" and "Northanger Abbey". Drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters written by members of the Austen family, Professor Honan recreates Austen's childhood, sketches her devotion to her ambitious parents and draws a lively picture of Jane's two brothers, one of whom served with Nelson's navy at Trafalgar, and of Jane's closest confidante, her elder sister Cassandra. Set against a backdrop of rural Hampshire and Bath, Honan's life of Austen moves between closely observed domestic life with family and friends, to descriptions of dances and parties, social mores and malice. It brings new insights into her chequered love life, her moments of loneliness and frustration and her ironic appreciation of her situation as an intelligent, economically dependent woman.
