Jane Austen the Novelist. Essays Past and Present.
A group of essays by beloved scholar Juliet McMaster, some previously in print and some from presentations, are brought together in one volume. Deep dives into Pride and Prejudice, Emma, The Beautifull Cassandra, Love and Freindship, The Watsons. Discussion of the cultural phenomenon of Jane Austen. Lots of discussion on the "head and/or heart" themes that run through Austen's works. Does her sparkling wit and intellect preclude depth of feeling? Or do her works contain both social satire and deep emotion? This copy is near fine except for pencil notes on the table of contents page, resulting in a great bargain. Macmillan LTD in London.
