From the Publisher
Jane Austen is a mystery. The first incontrovertibly great woman
novelist, she is, among other things, one of the finest prose
stylists in literature; the first truly modern writer, the
Godmother of chick lit. She is also the greatest enigma (next to
Shakespeare) in English literature. "Soldiers in the First World
War" sat in the trenches and read them for the civilising comforts
they provided. Hard-nut literary critics such as F. R. Leavis
lauded their austere complexity. World Book Day, 2007, found that
Pride and Prejudice was the one book 'The nation can't live
without'. In this witty, accessible guide, Charles
Jennings goes in search of this enigma through her words
as well as her times, including a short biography, an overview of
the novels, as well as the world that she inhabited. Finally, the
book contains Jane's very own words of advice for the modern life.
