Jane Austen and the Price of Happiness.

SKU: 17756

In the first full-length study of Austen's unexpected comic endings, Brodey examines how these endings show Austen's "style entirely new." What can these endings show us about Austen's views on the purpose of domestic fiction as well as her views on cultural norms and the meaning of happiness. Modern film adaptations are also interpreted for what they show us about modern ideas of happiness and marriage. Johns Hopkins University Press. 2024. Hb. NEW. $25.00
