Book Description:

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 her work has been 'recreated' in another age and medium. He engages with new versions of Austen's work and argues that they can be used as aids to enhance readings of the texts. Chapters examine issues such as the romantic impulse in Austenian biography, and 'Jane Austen' as a commodity.

Review:

"Those looking for an intelligent and very well-informed guide to Austen's contemporary cultural significance will find in Recreating Jane Austen the starting place they seek." Eighteenth-Century Fiction

"John Wiltshire offers a smart critical engagement with Austen adaptation in his Recreating Jane Austen, where he not only analyzes the texts and films but offers a theory of artistic influence and creativity." The Wordsworth Circle

"Although short, the book is remarkably well informed - with extraordinary useful notes and bibliography - and cleverly and wittily argued." CHOICE
