Description - Jane Austen Among Women by Deborah Kaplan

In an age when genteel women wrote little more than personal letters, how did Jane Austen manage to become a novelist? Was she an isolated genius who rose to fame from the support of her family, or from woman writers who went before her? In "Jane Austen Among Women", Deborah Kaplan argues that these explanations are either misleading or insufficient. Austen, Kaplan contends, participated actively in a women's culture that promoted female authority and achievement - a culture that not only helped her become a novelist but also influenced her fiction.
