About the Authors
  • Recreating Jane Austen is a book for readers who know and love Austen's work.

Written in an engaging and readable style, this accessible study approaches the central question of the role Jane Austen plays in the contemporary cultural imagination.

    • Written by a well-known commentator on the novels
    • Written in a clear, jargon-free style
    • Covers a wide range of issues, including recent biographies of Jane Austen, a wide range of recent Austen movies, and 'Jane Austen' as a commodity
