Satire, Celebrity, and Politics in Jane Austen.
Harris argues that Austen was a satirist, celebrity-watcher, and a keen political observer, and she backs up her analysis with plenty of examples from Austen's works. Laugh, groan, and sigh alongside Austen as you enjoy the connections between her works and the current events that surrounded her. We find Harris's books indispensable to understanding the true nature of Austen's courage. Bucknell University Press/Rowman & Littlefield. Hb. 2017. NEW (list price $110). $85.00
