By a Lady.
Werker compares 20th century film interpretations of female characters in Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion to the images Austen created in her novels. She is interested in how Austen took archetypes of women and let them develop into new characters, and how these films treat those same archetypes in a different culture and time. Her thesis of the same name received the Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes Award 1998. A slim paperback in like new condition with very slight corner bump. Scarce book. Tilburg University Press. 1998. Paper.
