Woman as 'Nobody' and the Novels of Fanny Burney.

SKU: 16279

The author describes how Burney worked with female namelessness in her early novels and used it to create her fluid heroines. She also devotes a chapter to a postmodern reading of each novel. Evelina, Cecelia, Camilla, culminate in The Wanderer, with a heroine "Incognita" who refuses to name herself. A fascinating entry into a deeper appreciation of one of Austen's favorite authors. Excellent condition, with mylar protector. University Press of Florida. 1992. Hb, Dj. 1992. USED. $30.00
