Non-Fiction Devoted to Jane Austen

Jane Austen was one of a kind, and countless books have been written about her. Readers still strive to savor the details of her life during the Regency Period, as evidenced by a multitude of books, societies, and her online afterlife. The Jane Austen Society of North America is an excellent resource for every day enthusiasts and students analyzing Austen's contributions to classical literature. The Jane Austen Centre, located in Bath, England offers an online gift shop, tea room, permanent collection, and even hosts a yearly festival, where members can learn, dance, and celebrate together. Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton, Hampshire, was Austen's final residence, where she was able to fine tune her novels and enjoy a period of intensely focused productivity.

Austen's timeless wit and wisdom still translates into the daily predicaments we face in trying to find meaning in our own interactions with each other and a far less refined and thoughtful society. These books cover everything from etiquette, romance, social class, friendship, spirituality, and nature to give Austen devotees a vicarious sense of the world she inhabited and wrote about.
