Jane Austen 1775-1817
Jane lived in Bath 1801-6 after her father retired there. She would have known Hazle’s Bath models: this one, Sally Lunn’s and the Chemist. All her novels mention Bath. Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, partly set there, show the falsity of its “beau monde”. With comedy and acute observation, women are depicted as dependent on marriage, with little paid work for them. In 1802 Jane refused the rich but offensive Harris Bigg. Her father died in 1805 and she, her mother and sister had to live off their brothers’ charity. Jane gave her heroines the happy ending she never quite found.
