Review:

'Making historical connections that were ahead of its time, Sibling Love and Incest in Jane Austen's Fiction offers original and fascinating readings in clear, graceful prose worthy of its subject. Moving beyond the facile labelling of Austen as 'conservative', Hudson makes a compelling argument for Austen's literary and social innovations.' - Devoney Looser, Indiana State University; editor of Jane Austen and Discourses of Feminism (1995) 'Glenda Hudson's chapters on symbolic incest in Austen's novels are stimulating and masterly. She places Austen's works in the contexts of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Romantic poetry and popular fiction in a way that will prove highly valuable to all scholars. This first-rate book will be the standard treatment of sibling relationships in Austen studies for years to come.' - John Halperin, Centennial Professor of English, Vanderbilt University
