Jane Austen, the Secret Radical

#ad
#ad
Vintage #ad - A brilliant, revealing, as well, illuminating reassessment of the life and work of Jane Austen that makes clear how Austen has been misread for the past two centuries and that shows us how she intended her books to be read, how subversive and daring--how truly radical--a writer she was. We see a writer who understood that the novel--until then seen as mindless "trash"--could be a great art form and who, perhaps more than any other writer up to that time, imbued it with its particular greatness.

. In this fascinating, ambitious, revelatory work, helena kelly--dazzling jane Austen authority--looks past the grand houses, the pretty young women, past the demure drawing room dramas and witty commentary on the narrow social worlds of her time that became the hallmark of Austen's work to bring to light the serious, deeply subversive nature of this beloved writer.

Jane Austen, the Secret Radical #ad - The author reveals just how in the novels we find the real Jane Austen: a clever, clear-sighted woman "of information, " fully aware of what was going on in the world and sure about what she thought of it. Kelly illuminates the radical subjects--slavery, among them--considered treasonous at the time, feminism, the Church, evolution, poverty, that Austen deftly explored in the six novels that have come to embody an age.

Jane Austen: A Life

#ad
#ad
Vintage #ad - At her death in 1817, jane austen left the world six of the most beloved novels written in English—but her shortsighted family destroyed the bulk of her letters; and if she kept any diaries, they did not survive her. Now acclaimed biographer claire tomalin, author of A Life of My Own,  has filled the gaps in the record, creating a remarkably fresh and convincing portrait of the woman and the writer.

While most austen biographers have accepted the assertion of Jane's brother Henry that "My dear Sister's life was not a life of events, " Tomalin shows that, on the contrary, Austen's brief life was fraught with upheaval. Tomalin provides detailed and absorbing accounts of austen's ill-fated love for a young irishman, her brothers' naval service in the Napoleonic wars and in the colonies, her close friendship with a worldly cousin whose French husband met his death on the guillotine, her frequent travels and extended visits to London, and thus shatters the myth of Jane Austen as a sheltered and homebound spinster whose knowledge of the world was limited to the view from a Hampshire village.
