Jane Austen in Context

Janet Todd (ed), "Jane Austen in Context (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen)"
Cambridge University Press | 2005 | Literary Criticism | ISBN: 0521826446 | siPDF | 498 pages | 8.5 MB

Covering many aspects of Jane Austen's life, works and historical context, this collection of essays provides the most complete one volume introduction to her life and times. The generously illustrated collection of concise contributions is arranged alphabetically, and covers topics ranging from biography to portraits, critical responses to translations, agriculture to transport. An essay on the reception of Austen's work is also included, showing how criticism of Austen has responded to literary movements and fashions. This is a work of reference that readers and scholars of Austen will turn to again and again.

"Jane Austen deserves, and here gets, the reward of other people's skillful work on her little bit of ivory, two inches wide... The Cambridge Edition justifies its claim to the 'the first ever scholarly edition of the works of Jane Austen', and is a fine tribute to her for the twenty-first century." -Jane Austen Society Newsletter
