Judith Stove

Judith Stove is an Australian writer, researcher and linguist with a strong understanding of the Western philosophical tradition along with the ancient languages of Latin and Classical Greek. A mother of two adult sons, Judith has published two books on the life and times of Jane Austen, and many articles on history and literature. She and her husband live within a beautiful garden created by her father, philosopher David Stove (1927-1994), outside Sydney, Australia, close to the Blue Mountains National Park. For Judith, every day is an opportunity to learn more about the intricacy of the cosmos, from both ‘the book of Nature,’ and the works surviving from the past.
