Jane Austen Books

SKU: 10849

Saintsbury was an early advocate of art for art's sake. He wanted to know the whole history of European literature and share it with all readers. His biography brings us into the literary world of Victorian-Edwardian England. He put Elizabeth Bennet at the top of his literary heroines (don't we all?) when he listed them in his introduction to Pride and Prejudice. Folks interested in biography, literary history, and Victorian-Edwardian England will love this book. University of Michigan Press, Ann Arbor. 1995. Hb, Dj. NEW. $15.00
