Davis, Kathryn E.


Austen lived in an era of Revolution, during the rise of Enlightenment thinking. Davis presents a highly readable exploration of Austen's unique approach to Liberty in her final completed novel. Davis shows how Austen's novel engaged in the debates of her time, interacting with poets, theologians, and philosophers of the long 18th century. Austen shared with her readers, including the future king of England, a new approach to Liberty. Lehigh University Press. 2016. Paper. List price $42.99. NEW. $38.00
