Laughing Feminism: Subversive Comedy in Frances Burney, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen.

SKU: 14359-1

Focuses on comedy in the works of these wonderful artists as they dealt variously and sometimes viciously with the sexist views they encountered in their worlds. Includes a chapter called "Limits of Sisterhood" that deals with satire of women, a chapter on mocking the men. A great way to explore the parallels between these early women writers. Light stain and wrinkles to cover, corners a little curled. Wayne State University Press. Paper. 1998. USED. $7.00
