Jane Austen

Article Review   by:Lissa Wells     Original Author: Deirdre Le Faye
ª
 
Have you ever wondered what was behind the woman who created characters such as the witty, sharp tongued, sparkling eyed young Elizabeth Bennet and her dashing but aloft, Mr. Darcy ? As well as the mischievous and spoiled Emma Woodhouse ? Well, with this wonderfull publication, you can explore the mystery of this elusive author.

This publication by renouned Jane Austen biographer Deirdre Le Faye, explores the life of Jane Austen and all that had influene in her writings. Dierdre's account includes a collection of memoirs from family and friends as well as a number of replicas of manuscripts and literary works that delve into the life of this imaginenative and sweetly amusing author. The book also includes accounts of the personal tragedies and expierances that touched the life of the young Jane Austen and infleunced the characters and places she put down on paper.

Dying at the early age of 41 and leaving behind only 6 completed manuscripts that have touched lives from generation to generation, yet left many wondering about an author that never married yet created characters that were passionate in their views of love and family. This book, for any die hard Jane Austen fan, is very enlightening and actually allows you to travel back to Janes World and view her life from those who knew and loved her. Those who take a look into the pages of this book will not be disappointed for the time spent reading it !
