Summary
By focusing on the woman rather than the author, Tucker paints a new and welcome portrait of Jane Austen: not the spinster recluse of previous biographies, but a vibrant, well-traveled woman who was very much a part of the world in which she lived. Tucker's goal is not to tell us more about Austen's writing but to tell her personal history--her environment, her friendships, her romantic attachments. The product of over fifty years of research, Jane Austen the Woman presents previously unpublished biographical material--including some from Austen's collateral descendants--that has hitherto gone undetected by a legion of Austen sleuths
