A Memoir of Jane Austen PDF

James Edward Austen-Leigh

I doubt whether it would be possible to mention any author of note, whose personal obscurity was so complete.

James Edward Austen-Leighs Memoir of his aunt Jane Austen was published in 1870, over fifty years after her death. Together with the shorter recollections of James Edwards two sisters, Anna Lefroy and Caroline Austen, the Memoir remains the prime authority for her life and continues to inform all subsequent accounts. These are family memories, the record of Jane Austens life shaped and limited by the loyalties, reserve, and affection of nieces and nephews recovering in
old age the outlines of the young aunt they had each known. They still remembered the shape of her bonnet and the tone of her voice, and their first-hand accounts bring her vividly before us. Their declared partiality also raises fascinating issues concerning biographical truth, and the terms in which all biography
functions.

This edition brings together for the first time these three memoirs, and also includes Janes brother Henry Austens Biographical Notice of 1818 and his lesser known Memoir of 1833, making a unique biographical record.
