Jane Austen's Philosophy of the Virtues.
An examination of the religious and philosophical content of Austen's novels, including Lady Susan. Emsley shows that Austen's depiction of the moral actions and decisions of everyday life are reflected in Classical and Christian virtues, unlike novelists since her time. This is a very readable book that adds to the appreciation of Austen as moralist. Palgrave Macmillan, 2005. HB. List price $149.99. NEW. $69.00
