Jane Austen: A Study in Fictional Conventions.

SKU: 17387

A study of Austen's use of contermporary popular conventions, chiefly Richardsonian. Harmsel argues Austen may burlesque these conventions, but she also uses them and adapts them to her own use through realism, character development, variety of function, and irony. Each of the six major novels has a chapter in which Austen's work is compared for similarities and differences to the convenstions of Richardson and his imitators. Her treatment of Emma and Persuasion are especially interesting. Gilson M1153.  Studies in English Literature Volume IV. Mouton & Co. Publishers, The Hague, The Netherlands. 1964. Paper. USED. $18.00
