Her family's final move to Chawton, in the depths of the Hampshire countryside and so near the Steventon rectory of her childhood, gave her great satisfaction and led to her most creative period. This comprehensive work provides a guide to the ideas and subtleties behind the real and fictional settings of Jane Austen's novels, with illustrations chosen to demonstrate how the changes in response to nature and landscape were reflected by the greatest painters and landscape gardeners of the day. This book should appeal to confirmed Janeites but also to those with an interest in social and landscape history, and for all those who are newly discovering the world of Jane Austen.Hide synopsis
