JANE AUSTEN DICTIONARY BY APPERSON regular print size
THIS IS AN EBOOK PDF
WHEN WE NEED TO KNOW THE NAMES OF THE ENTIRE KNIGHTLY FAMILY AND WHICH CHARACTER READ THE BARONETAGE, WE CAN FIND OUT IN MR. APPERSON'S THOROUGH DICTIONARY. THE SPECIAL EFFECT OF THIS BOOK IS TO TIE IN THE PERSONAL LIFE OF JANE AUSTEN WITH HER WRITING. WE CAN READ OF THE PLACES IN BATH SHE VISITED, AND SEE WHERE THOSE SAME LOCATIONS APPEAR IN HER NOVELS. OF COURSE, MR. APPERSON ALSO TRACES THE AUSTEN FAMILY AND ALL OF THE VARIOUS CHARACTERS AND THEIR RESIDENCES. AVAIL IN LARGE PRINT.
There comes a point when we need to know where Jane Austen
referenced America, Ireland, and the Battle of Agincourt. We also
must have the names of the entire Knightley family from Emma
and all the many Henrys she referred to. By the way, just who read
the Baronetage? Then, or course, did JA make any use of
Shakespear’s Hamlet? Mr. Apperson answers these questions and
many more, as he sets out to name the places, persons, books and
relations dear to the writings and personal life of Jane Austen.
This dictionary goes farther. It positively relates the personal
life of Jane Austen with her writing. We read of the places in Bath
she visited, and then those same places as locations in her novels.
Jane’s family covered a gamut of positions in society from her own
perch on the fringes to the elevated status of relatives. The
Dictionary makes us wonder if JA’s characters, like their homes
and towns, are rooted in the lives of real people.
