KIRKUS REVIEW

Following along the lines of the earlier Speaking of Jane Austen (1944), this again provides a tandem approach to a revered author and offers further examination of her books. Here are the discoveries they have made about the letters, the servants, the families, the sisters, the marriages, the parents, the health, the social life, the friendships, etc., etc., of the characters of her novels; here are the ideas they have pursued through their rereading which have made her people come very much alive for them. Happy commentaries, enthusiastic reporting, this is a special hobby book for Austen devotees.
