Jane Austen at Home

A Biography

Book - 2017
Rate this:
Worsley takes us into Jane Austen's world and the many places she lived: her childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life. By examining the rooms, spaces and possessions which mattered to her, and the varying ways in which homes are used in her novels as both places of pleasure and as prisons, Worsley shows readers a passionate Austen who fought for her freedom, and refused to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy.
