Jane Austen's Inspiration: Beloved Friend Anne Lefroy.
A "literary friendship" developed between Anne Lefroy and young Jane Austen. Madam Lefroy must have seen something remarkable in this young woman. Stove, a JASA member, focuses on this friendship, its effects on both women, and aspects of Lefroy's life that we've not read about before, including examples of her poetry she would have written during her friendship with young Jane. This adds new depth to our understanding of Austen's connections to the larger world outside of her small village in Hampshire. Pen and Sword. 2019. Hb. List $35.59. NEW. $25.00
