A Companion to Jane Austen Studies

Synopsis

Jane Austen significantly shaped the development of the English novel, and her works continue to be read widely today. In addition, her writings have attracted considerable critical and scholarly attention. This reference is a guide to her works and the response to them. Each of her major works is the subject of a reader-response oriented essay and a separate bibliographical survey. In addition, separate chapters overview her letters, poems, and prayers. Thus, the companion offers a convenient summary of scholarship on Austen and fresh readings of her works.
