Jane Austen and Religion: Salvation and Society in Georgian England.

SKU: 17641

Griffin seeks to counteract our view of Austen as a secular writer, as we are after all reading from our own secular world, by reading her novels against the background of a Long Eighteenth Century, from the Restoration to the end of the Georgian period, where the cultural context was much different from our own. He shows Austen as a neoclassical Enlightenment author writing from perspectives of British Empiricism and  Georgian Anglicanism. Her works reflect John Locke's theory of knowledge through reason, revelation and reflection on experience, and mirror her society's belief in natural law and natural order. Very good, almost like new. Current list price $109.99 in harcover and $89.99 in eBook. Palgrave Macmillan. 2002. Hb, Dj. USED. $50.00
