Jane Austen was a woman with an amazing talent. So much of that talent spilled over into modern times due to the timeless writing style adopted by Ms. Austen, which was shaped by Christian values.
The family of Jane Austen were the ones who offered her an atmosphere in which she felt free to write her stories. To know Jane Austen is to have a complete understanding of the unique life offered by her family and the fundamental Christian values that she carried through her life.
Peter Leithart writes a unique biography of the life of Jane Austen to show just how much her writing means to so many and her continued impact on society today. The book starts with the introduction that ties in the thoughts of Mr. Leithart and his thoughts on the writing of Ms. Austen.
‘Jane Austen’ is a thorough and insightful rendering of the life of Jane Austen. I found the writing to be indepth on the family history which helped explain the woman and amazing writer Jane Austen had become. I found the author’s introduction to be thought provoking and something I referred back to while reading the biography to gain a larger understanding of Ms. Austen’s life. Jane Austen is a very good read for anyone interested in Jane Austen and her impact on modern day cinema and writing.
