The tone of this work is “Admire” and “Nostalgia”.
Jane Austen was presented to be a woman who were not only with the beauty and elegance but also the abundance mentality and wisdom. She loved writing as if she was born to be a writer. Good education, the full of tenderness and the experiences of Jane Austen made a great success for her as a writer. Except those traits above about Jane Austen, the state of neglecting fame and money was also presented as a trait of her.
The evidences to support opinion above can be found in the third, 6th and 7th paragraph and I quote “Her stature was that of true elegance.” “She became an authoress entirely from taste and inclination.” “Faultless herself, as nearly as human nature can be, she always sought…” “…in spite of such applause…no accumulation of fame would have induced her…”
I do believe the description of the way Jane Austen died and how she faced to it in the third paragraph. The one reason is those details that Henry Austen wrote to describe about the process of the death of Jane Austen are reasonable, which reminds me of the time when one of my family died from cancer. The other that makes me believe it is the identity of the author, who was Jane Austen’s brother, someone accompanied with her until the very end. Additionally, this preface was written only after five months when she died, which giving it more credibility.
