9780719807503: Jane Austen's Journeys

A study of travel in Austen's works, within the context of the period's excitement for travel

Jane Austen lived in an exciting age for travel. Improvements to roads and carriages meant that more people than ever were taking journeys for pleasure, to view picturesque scenery, to visit a spa town or the seaside, or to stay with distant relatives. The Austen family was very much part of this trend, and Jane was familiar with most of the counties of southern England, from Kent in the east to Devon in the west, and as far north as Staffordshire. With one exception, all of her heroines leave home at some point in their story to travel to a different part of the country and, even in Emma, where the heroine remains in her village, other characters travel about in quest of health, amusement, or a marriage partner. Hazel Jones provides the context for this rage for travel, drawing on a wide range of archives and contemporary printed material, as well as on Jane Austen's own letters and novels. From maps to inns, from traveling dress to turnpikes, every detail is brought vividly before the reader's eyes.

About the Author:

Hazel Jones has written for Regency World and Sensibilities and is the author of Jane Austen and Marriage.

Review:

Through all twelve chapters an intriguing web of connections is created in dealing with the theme of travel...This relatively inexpensive and handsomely illustrated book would grace any collection of commentaries on Jane Austen's life and writings..Hazel Jones's book is to be highly valued and it will certainly enhance and enrich any re-reading of her [Austen's] works. The Jane Austen Society 'Hazel Jones provides the reader with an enthralling study of travelling as it was experienced by both Jane Austen and her contemporaries. This is a book rich in detail, a book in which we have heaped upon us interesting aspects of Jane Austen's own journeys, as well as those of the travelling public of her day. Even richer for the enthusiast are Hazel Jones's insights into the mental journeys Jane Austen's characters undertake.' Jane Austen Society of Australia
