Jane All at Sea,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jane Austen and the Navy (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book dealing with the writings of Jane Austen from a rather narrow and special point of view. It deals in some detail with her brothers' real experiences of life in the R.N. during the Napoleonic wars; and with Jane Austen's relationship with them and the lives they led. You might say that it offers those readers who can't get enough information about Jane the opportunity to look at aspects her life and works not usually considered. A very original book.
