G. E. MITTEN HAS GARNERED A VAST STORE OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE PERIOD IN WHICH JANE AUSTEN LIVED AND HOW IT ALL FITS INTO THE NETWORK OF HER WONDERFUL NOVELS.  AVAIL IN LARGE PRINT.

By the early 1900's, Jane Austen enjoyed a century of accolades.  The public hungered for more details of the society she so wonderfulfully described.  Mr. Mitten obliged.  He said:

Jane Austen stands
absolutely alone, unapproached, in a quality in which women are
usually supposed to be deficient, a humorous and brilliant insight into
the foibles of human nature, and a strong sense of the ludicrous. As a
writer in The Times (November 25, 1904) neatly puts it,“Of its kind the
comedy of Jane Austen is incomparable. It is utterly merciless.
Prancing victims of their illusions, her men and women are utterly
bare to our understanding, and their gyrations are irresistibly comic.”
Therefore as a personality, as a central figure, too much cannot be
written about her, and however much is said or written the mystery of
her genius will still always baffle conjecture, always lure men on to
fresh attempts to analyse and understand her.
The data of Jane Austen’s life have been repeated several times, as has
been said, but beyond a few trifling allusions to her times no writer has
thought it necessary to show up the background against which her
figure may be seen, or to sketch from contemporary records the
environment amid which she developed. Yet surely she is even more
wonderful as a product of her times than considered as an isolated
figure; therefore the object of this book is to show her among the
scenes wherein she moved, to sketch the men and women to whom she
was accustomed, the habits and manners of her class, and the England
with which she was familiar.Her life was not long, lasting only from 1775
to 1817, but it covered notable times, and with such an epoch for
presentation, with such a central figure to link together the sequence of
events, we have a theme as inspiring as could well be found.
