Jane Austen the Woman: Some Biographical Insights

by

Jane Austen the Woman: Some Biographical Insights Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By focusing on the woman rather than the author, George Tucker paints a new and welcome picture of Jane Austen: not the spinster recluse of previous biographies, but a vibrant, well-traveled woman who was very much a part of the world in which she lived.

Review:

"Jane Austen once said, 'I think I may boast myself to be, with all possible vanity, the most unlearned and uninformed female who ever dared to be an authoress. 'Such teasing self-mockery is of course far from the truth, and it is the truth of the author's 'real life' which the author attempts to re-create after peeling away the layers of myth that still cover it. Scarcely the recluse she is still sometimes made out to be, Jane Austen emerges here as a lively, welltraveled woman, whose life was far richer than is often supposed." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [243]-250) and index.
