Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first book to investigate Jane Austen's popular significance today, Everybody's Jane considers why Austen matters to amateur readers, how they make use of her novels, what they gain from visiting places associated with her, and why they create works of fiction and nonfiction inspired by her novels and life.The voices of everyday readers emerge from both published and unpublished sources, including interviews conducted with literary tourists and archival research into the founding of the Jane Austen Society of North America and the exceptional Austen collection of Alberta Hirshheimer Burke of Baltimore.Additional topics include new Austen portraits; portrayals of Austen, and of Austen fans, in film and fiction; and hybrid works that infuse Austen's writings with horror, erotica, or explicit Christianity.Everybody's Jane will appeal to all those who care about Austen and will change how we think about the importance of literature and reading today.

Download or read Jane Austen and the Body PDF, written by John Wiltshire and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1992-09-24 with total page 269 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Jane Austen has been thought of as a novelist of manners whose work discreetly avoids discussing the physical. John Wiltshire shows, on the contrary, how important are bodies and faces, illness and health, in the novels, from complainers and invalids such as Mrs. Bennet and Mr. Woodhouse, to the frail, debilitated Fanny Price, the vulnerable Jane Fairfax and the "picture of health," Emma. The book draws on modern theories of the body, and on eighteenth-century medical sources, to give a fresh and controversial reading of familiar texts.

Download or read Recreating Jane Austen PDF, written by John Wiltshire and published by . This book was released on 2001-08-02 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Recreating Jane Austen is a book for readers who know and love Austen s work. Stimulated by the recent crop of film and television versions of Austen s novels, John Wiltshire examines how they have been transposed and recreated in another age and medium. Wiltshire illuminates the process of recreation through the work of the psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, and offers Jane Austen s own relation to Shakespeare as a suggestive parallel. Exploring the romantic impulse in Austenian biography, Jane Austen as a commodity, and offering a re-interpretation of Pride and Prejudice, this book approaches the central question of the role Jane Austen plays in the contemporary cultural imagination.

Download or read Between Self and World PDF, written by James Thompson and published by University Park : Pennsylvania State University Press. This book was released on 1988 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this detailed historical analysis of Jane Austen's fictional representation of the individual subject, Thompson argues that Austen's notions of private experience and public performance are neither natural nor eternal, but are peculiar to her period and that these notions are best understood in Georg Lukacs's terms of the objectification of social relations under capital. In Austen's language and in her descriptive technique, we can discern a recurrent pattern in which the fundamental elements of her fictional world, material things as well as emotions, are indicated but not described--they are briefly exposed and then withdrawn again from view. The "inner life" of characters in general is both presented and protected by a pattern of privacy. Austen's representational technique, her form of narrative, needs to be related to the social history of privacy. And, when combined with the the later discussions of changing concepts of language, character, and marriage, we can trace the development of some modern notions of individuality, interiority, intimacy, and romance. We see that despite Austen's self-conscious political, moral, and religious conservatism, and despite her class identification with the gentry and their sentiments of noblesse oblige, the way in which Austen's heroine defines herself in relation to all categories of existence is inevitably determined by the alienating effects of capital, under which social relations and practices are externalized and objectified and from which, consequently, the individual is alienated. Elizabeth Bennet and Emma Woodhouse as characters embody the interrelation between economic, political, and social changes and their private or domestic consequences. The author's concern is the relation between history and the individual subject and, moreover, the ways in which we have come to think in terms of just this sort of opposition. If "History is what hurts," as Fredric Jameson puts it, in Austen's novels, love is what soothes, for private or domestic romance comes to function as the ideological negation of history, a refuge into a "natural" and "timeless" world of privacy and intimacy. Intimacy functions to efface the ideological contradiction between social responsibility and private withdrawal. Austen's achievement is to integrate the privatization of human relations into the appropriate vehicle, the courtship narrative or domestic love story.
