9780230008236: Jane Austen

Tony Tanner's classic text on Jane Austen addresses the issues that have always occupied the author's most perceptive critics, and offers an illuminating and refreshing analysis of Austen's novels. Tanner shows how Austen changed from a basically accepting view of 'society' to a more questioning one and considers the problems of authority, power and the position of women, as well as the relationship between ethics, language and behaviour.

This reissued edition features a new Preface by leading Romantic scholar Marilyn Gaull who examines Tanner's background and places the original work in context. Lively and informative, the Preface helps to reinforce and explain the continued importance of Tanner's work. Accompanied by an insightful Note on the Text by Austen scholar John Wiltshire, and an expanded Bibliography and Index, this is a timely republication of a study which is now regarded as one of the finest, and most accessible, introductions to a great novelist.

About the Author:

TONY TANNER was sometime Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, UK, and Professor of English and American Literature in the Faculty of English at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Review:

This is the sort of intelligent study of a single author's oeuvre that has become uncommon in recent criticism. It is genuinely introductory as well as genuinely searching. -- David Bromwich "New Republic"

One of the most readable books yet to appear on Jane Austen, as well as the most interesting in itself...It is continuously sensitive to the feel of fictive domesticity, and the potential of a situation in terms of what goes on in modern life, and has gone on in other novels. -- John Bayley "London Review of Books"

In a comprehensive volume embracing a lengthy chapter on each of Austen's six novels, as well as the unfinished fragment "Sanditon," and a massive introduction focusing on the works 'in the relation to problems concerned with society, education, and language', Tanner reveals a Jane Austen far more subtle, experimental, politically engaged, philosophically aware, and psychoanalytically sophisticated than has hitherto been supposed. On almost every page there is an expected disclosure of meaning. -- Norman Fruman "Times Literary Supplement"
