Jane Austen the Woman

Some Biographical Insights

George Holbert Tucker

Palgrave Macmillan Trade

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.

REVIEWS

Praise for Jane Austen the Woman

"Austen has been depicted in earlier biographies as a shy and reclusive spinster. Tucker argues in this prodigiously researched and heavily footnoted study that Austen was a lively and witty woman who participated fully in the English social life she wrote about." --Publisher's Weekly
