This journal includes the essay "Jane Austen's feminism: an original response to convention" by Margaret Lenta. Lenta discusses the changes in women's roles over the century leading up to Austen's novels, and how these changes meant that women were discussed often in literature and articles of the time. She shows how Austen's female characters were self-determining, something completely new. Manchester University Press.1981. Paper. USED. $15.00
