Jane Austen: Writing, Society, Politics.
Keymer sets Austen firmly in the social and political world of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars, and all the anxiety and turmoil they generated. Keymer looks at her juvenilia as well as her novels to illustrate how her writings were shaped by the literary and political debates of her time. He argues that she looked toward a conservative vision of social harmony, which she simultaneously disrupted with irony and satire. Oxford University Press. 2020. Hb, Dj. NEW. $17.00
