In response to women and publishing, written by P. Bingham on March 18, 1998 at 15:31:56
Austen knew she was a woman and she soon discovered the draw backs of being one.
But, again, I must remind you that in this instance Jane Austen had nothing to do with dealing with the publisher. The letter was sent by her father and she apparently had NO knowledge of it. Certainly she was discovering the drawbacks of being a woman in ALL aspects of her life, but dealing with a publisher does not apply at this point in her life.
Again, I think what you are offering would be very interesting- just that it has nothing to do with Mr. Austen's letter to the publisher at this point in JA life. But certainly relevant to her overall life..
