Biographic Austen

Sophie Collins

Book - 2017

Many people know that Jane Austen (1775-1817) was one of the greatest literary voices in history, celebrated by critics and the public alike, who wrote 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Pride and Prejudice'. What, perhaps, they don't know is that she was one of eight children of a clergyman; that all of her novels were originally published anonymously, with one simply authored 'By a Lady'; and that she once accepted a marriage proposal, but changed her mind the foll...owing day. Biographic: Austen presents a novel handbook to her life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the author behind the words.

Review by Booklist Review

Janeites and neophytes alike will find factoid treasures, including where and when the term Janeite originated; the story of Jane's favorite cousin, Eliza, Comtesse de Feuillide; a look at best-sellers in Austen's time, which did not include her books (Emma was not a total flop, but it was no Childe Harold's Pilgrimage); and, of course, an examination of Austen's beloved works (including pug facts).--Susan Maguire Copyright 2019 Booklist
