    One thought on “Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels

    1. Meredith (Austenesque Reviews)

      Interactive, Inviting, and InformativeSource: Gift from BrotherThis attractive coffee-table sized biography has long caught my eye for many reasons. One, being the superb and striking color of the cover (I love purple!), Secondly, because it is by Janet Todd, who is well-known for her many scholarly works on Jane Austen and other female authors. And finally, because it comes with removable memorabilia! In recognition of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s passing this month, I thought readi [...]

      One of my greatest discoveries while touring Jane Austen’s England last year was on our first day in London. Our group was at The British Library to see Jane Austen’s writing desk (awe inspiring) and of course we hit the library gift shop on our way out. We were delighted to find a whole table display featuring books by and about Jane Austen. Dead center was the striking purple cover of a large, over-sized book that I did not recognize entitled, Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels. [...]

      A beautiful companion book perfect for lovers of Jane Austen and her works. The inserts are gorgeous and the actual content provided some great insights.

      Quick summary: Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels is a book all Jane Austen fans will want in their personal libraries. Oversized, with padded covers and glossy pages covered with artwork from Austen’s era, this biography details Austen’s life and loves, historical events that occurred during her lifetime, and her career as an author. Chapters are devoted to each of Austen’s six novels, as well as her early writings, her unfinished works, and Lady Susan. Todd even discusses “Th [...]

      I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of Jane Austen: Her Life, Her Times, Her Novels by Janet Todd. When I opened the package I was astonished as the book is absolutely beautiful in itself before you even open it and it simply cries out to be a "coffee table book".The book describes the life and work of Jane Austen in detail, illustrated beautifully by art from the period, photographs, extracts of her writing and also in three envelopes within the book there are removable items of interes [...]

      As an Austen admirer I had not been able to resist purchasing this book two years ago. But since it has sat on my shelf, unloved. I thought that the book was only supposed to be pretty and that the text was inocuous: a simple biography and summaries of the novels, but in fact it is much more!First the book itself is quite lovely. The full-page illustrations are gorgeous, the layout is really pleasing to the eye and the little pockets full of facsimiles add a little extra thing to the mix even if [...]

    7. Kristen

      This was a birthday gift from a friend who knows Pride & Prejudice is my favourite book, and I loved this just as much as I anticipated I would, because Jane Austen was a feminist and an determined, independant, and inspirational woman in a period that was completely stacked against her.The book's chapters alternate giving interesting tidbits about Austen's real life, with history, inspirations and interesting tidbits about all of her books. Since I love "behind the scenes" of almost anythin [...]

      This is an absolutely marvelous biography for Jane Austen. In comparison to the other Jane Austen biographies I have read it is light and fact-based. The information is well-written, sound and simple. It does not try to cross-examine every one of her stories or every one of her decisions. The beautiful illustrations, even the ones not directly related to Jane Austen's life, help to supply the back ground and paint a picture of the exciting times Jane Austen lived in.Plus, the beautiful facsimile [...]

    9. Lea

      Fun book to flip through to see paintings and photographs. There are pockets throughout with letters and poems and other ephemera to go with the book. It looks at each of her books and different times in her life. Nothing new revealed but a new presentation. It just ends rather abruptly which was a little odd. A good addition to any Austen book collection.

    10. Jessica

      I learned a lot from this book and it helped me put some things in context while reading Pride and Prejudice. I liked the large pictures and historical info. The facsimile documents were cool but I found it way too tedious to try and decipher the handwriting on most of them.

    11. Aude aux livres

      Même 5 étoiles ça ne suffit pas, ce livre est magnifique et ludique à la fois, on y apprend vraiment plein de choses !
