Mastering the Novels of Jane Austenis the ideal companion for anyone studying the works of this endearing literary figure. An engaging account of the six most-read Austen novels, this book captures the imagination with its fresh and lively approach.

It provides a detailed critique of Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion, linking the significance of the works from the past to the present day in the light of contemporary attitudes to women, tradition, and innovation. The book explores the influence of art, architecture, music, literature, theology, philosophy, history and politics in the novels, and discusses both traditional and contemporary literary theory, examining Austen's use of wit and irony, and the nuances of her vocabulary.

A must-have guide for anyone preparing for exams or looking to gain the maximum satisfaction from their reading of the novels of this much-loved author.
