Inhaltsangabe

Take a trip back to Jane Austen's world and the many places she lived as historian Lucy Worsley visits Austen's childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses - both grand and small - of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life. In places like Steventon Parsonage, Godmersham Park, Chawton House and a small rented house in Winchester, Worsley discovers a Jane Austen very different from the one who famously lived a "life without incident".

Worsley examines the rooms, spaces and possessions which mattered to her, and the varying ways in which homes are used in her novels as both places of pleasure and as prisons. She shows listeners a passionate Jane Austen who fought for her freedom, a woman who had at least five marriage prospects, but - in the end - a woman who refused to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy.

Lucy Worsley's Jane Austen at Home is a richly entertaining and illuminating new audiobook about one of the world's favorite novelists and one of the subjects she returned to over and over in her unforgettable novels: home.

Kritikerstimmen

" Jane Austen at Home offers a fascinating look at Jane Austen's world through the lens of the homes in which she lived and worked throughout her life. The result is a refreshingly unique perspective on Austen and her work and a beautifully nuanced exploration of gender, creativity, and domesticity." (Amanda Foreman, best-selling author of Georgianna, Duchess of Devonshire)

Brilliant Biography!

Lucy Worsley’s Biographie of Jane Austen is by far the best one I know!
It allows a deep look into Austen’s life and work by lying the focus on what her letters and homes can tell us today about the way Jane Austen lived her daily life. In my opinion Lucy Worsley succeeded in drawing plausible conclusions from Austen’s life to her work, which will inspire me to rethink and better understand Austen’s fictional characters.
