9780312123673: Jane Austen and Discourses of Feminism

In recent decades the vision of Austen as a subversive or rebellious author has appeared most forcefully in the varied scholarship of feminist literary critics. Some feminists have fashioned an Austen more closely linked to what Juliet Mitchell has called 'The Longest Revolution' (the women's movement) than to the French Revolution; others have vehemently disagreed. Jane Austen and Discourses of Feminism involves - among other things - a reassessment of these versions of Austen's relationship to feminisms. By foregrounding issues of artistic merit, genre, and history, many literary critics have effectively ignored issues of gender in their studies of Austen; feminist scholarship provided an important corrective. On the other hand, some feminist criticism, although it approached Austen's texts in innovative ways, gave short shrift to issues of history, literary genre, social context, or artistry. This volume aims implicitly and explicitly to recap second-wave feminist attention to Austen and to suggest new directions that criticism on Austen might take.

From the Back Cover:

Received understandings of Jane Austen and her novels have been revised most forcefully in feminist scholarship. Jane Austen and Discourses of Feminism reassesses and furthers this critical project. Grappling with literary theoretical innovations concerning gender, genre, nationalism, class, and sexuality, this collection presents new possibilities for understanding Austen's contributions to literary history. The anthology does not deliver a final verdict on whether Austen was or was not a feminist, but rather explores more broadly the links between her writings and feminist discourses - in both her time and our own. The essays, written by established Austen scholars as well as newcomers, suggest the directions that criticism on Austen might take.

About the Author:

DEVONEY LOOSER is the author of British Women Writers and the Writing of History (2000) and the editor of Generations: Academic Feminists in Dialogue (1997). She is assistant professor at Louisiana State University and is a member of the board of directors of the Jane Austen Society of North America.
