The Language of Jane Austen.

SKU: 14571-1

This study takes us through words we think we know and explains what they meant then, for greater appreciation of the novels. Even common words like spirits, gentle, lively, ladies, dull, tiresome, good-hearted, all have nuances 200 years ago that may be lost to us today. With copious corrections and comments on the text in pencil from former owner Lorraine Hanaway, who ultimately found the information on words in Austen's time good, despite the book's other faults. St. Martin's Press, 1991. Hb, Dj. USED. $15.00
