Book Description:

This is a brilliant insight into the great author’s life. While I love her books, I hadn’t read a biography of Austen before and found that this was a very satisfying introduction to her personal history. Jane Aiken Hodge points out the inherent dissatisfaction with convention which seeds all of Austen’s novels, as the title ‘Only a Novel’ suggests. She draws upon many sources in order to bring the reader a complete picture of one of the greatest minds in English literature, one who wrote at a time when women’s rights were still so heavily oppressed. I found this biography compulsive and at times even moving, and would certainly recommend it to any other Austen fans.
