I couldn't resist this book when the booksellers book talked it. A biography about Jane, even though there really isn't anything new to discuss, discover, or even consider about her life. It is a great introduction to early 19th century society and the fascinating tid bits of Jane frustrate you that her family destroyed so many of her letters and papers. The cover sums up what we know about her - a vague outline with most of the details missing. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone doing an author study, but those seem to be out of vogue in schools right now.
