Jane Austen's Art of Memory.
In this landmark work, Harris shows that Austen immersed her works in allusions to her predecessors in literature, including Locke, Richardson, Milton, Shakespeare, and Chaucer. And, she did not restrict the sources of her inspiration to literature. She absorbed, retained, and created new art. A must-read for all who seek to capture, just a little bit better, Austen "in the act of greatness." First edition hardbound in black paper with dust jacket. Clean, near fine. Cambridge University Press, 1989. USED, $50.00
