Jane Austen and the Body.
One of our favorite Austen scholars shows how her novels really are full of the physical, from Mrs Bennet, Mary Musgrove and Mr Woodhouse complaining to descriptions of young ladies' health. Think of contrasting characters like Emma Woodhouse and Lydia Bennet. Wiltshire examines how talk about health operates in contexts of politics, gender, and social concerns. Like new, near fine.
