Jane Austen, Young Author.
McMaster skillfully walks us through various ways to appreciate Austen's humorous parodies, which are so much fun to read on their own. But with context, such as information about the novels Austen mocked, we find more to laugh about. Sections on teaching the Juvenilia, following Austen's development of her future plots, experiments with voice, and attention to rowdy women. McMaster proves that we don't really know Jane Austen unless we read her early works. Ashgate, Surrey. 2016. Paper. List $49.95. NEW. $42.00
