A brilliant, illuminating reassessment of the life and work of Jane Austen that makes clear how Austen has been misread for the past two centuries and that shows us how she intended her books to be read, revealing, as well, how subversive and daring每how truly radical每a writer she was.

In this fascinating, revelatory work, Helena Kelly每dazzling Jane Austen authority每looks past the grand houses, the pretty young women, past the demure drawing room dramas and witty commentary on the narrow social worlds of her time that became the hallmark of Austen's work to bring to light the serious, ambitious, deeply subversive nature of this beloved writer. Kelly illuminates the radical subjects每slavery, poverty, feminism, the Church, evolution, among them每considered treasonous at the time, that Austen deftly explored in the six novels that have come to embody an age. The author reveals just how in the novels we find the real Jane Austen: a clever, clear-sighted woman "of information," fully aware of what was going on in the world and sure about what she thought of it. We see a writer who understood that the novel每until then seen as mindless "trash"每could be a great art form and who, perhaps more than any other writer up to that time, imbued it with its particular greatness.
