Jane Austen: The Chawton Letters (HB)


In their celebration of ‘little matters’ the regular round of visiting, dining out, drinking tea, reading and walking to the shops Jane Austen’s letters and novels have many similarities. 

This delightful little book brings together thirteen letters held by Jane Austen’s House, giving us intimate glimpses into her life in Bath and Chawton and on visits to London.

In them, Jane Austen relishes the shops, theatres and sights of London, as well as the quieter routines of village life in Chawton. We learn of her anxieties for the reception of Pride and Prejudice, her care in planning Mansfield Park and the hilarious negotiations over the publication of Emma.

These letters, each accompanied by reproductions from the original manuscripts in Jane Austen’s hand, testify to Jane’s deep emotional bond with her sister: the most moving letter of all is that written by Cassandra only days after Jane’s death in Winchester in July 1817.
