More About Jane Austen by Janet Todd
 
 
 
Overview
Over the past 200 years--although never more than in recent decades--Jane Austen's sharp and witty novels have delighted a diverse and devoted international readership. With scant information about her life available, fans have a bottomless hunger for details about the woman behind the work. Jane Austen feeds that appetite with background on her relationships with family and friends; on the contemporary attitudes that shaped Austen and her writing; and on the settings that inspired her and feature in her stories. Austenites will particularly treasure the 15 pieces of removable memorabilia, which include facsimiles of early manuscripts, a handwritten note outlining the profits from her novels, and a letter from Austen's father to the publisher Thomas Cadell that was returned with the words -Rejected by return of post- written on it.
