Women and 'Value' in Jane Austen's Novels: Settling, Speculating and Superfluity.
Hall's book focuses on the minor female characters in Austen's novels - the ambitious, those who settle for speculative marriages, losers and winners, who serve as foils in sympathy or struggle with the heroine. These characters expose the harsh economic reality for women in Austen's time. Palgrave macmillan. Hb. 2017. List proce $99.99. NEW. $75.00
