Knox-Shaw, Peter


A careful study of the Austen family's readings, the atmosphere at Steventon, and Austen's Juvenilia and novels gives proof to Knox-Shaw's argument that Austen was firmly grounded in Enlightenment thinking. Entertaining for the Austen fan as well as the scholar. Adds complexity to a rereading of all the novels; brings up the influence of brother James that is often not credited enough. The Austen family was obviously reading Hume, Adam Smith, and other Enlightenment writers. Cambridge UP, paper. Orig. publ. 2004. List price $46.99. NEW. $44.00
