Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution
The Promotion and Advancement of Science, Literature and Art
Jane Austen's England was conflicted and divided over the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. She rarely mentions it in writing, but there are intriguing references in MANSFIELD PARK and EMMA.
The lives and works of her favourite authors may contain clues to her own attitude; and she claims to have been once "in love" with that most active abolitionist, Thomas Clarkson.
