This book focuses on how Austen's life and work is being re-framed and re-imagined in 20th and 21st century literature and culture. Tracing the connections between Modernist Austen in the early C20th and feminist and post-feminist appropriations in the later C20th, it examines how Austen emerged as a complex point of reference on the global stage.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This collection makes a lively contribution to one of the hot topics in contemporary Austen Studies our persistent and multi-faceted refiguring of Jane Austen's reputation, her writings, and her afterlives. These stimulating essays chart the likely and unlikely uses of Jane Austen: her Modernist construction in the early twentieth century, her importance in times of war, her feminist and post-feminist fashioning, her academic and popular appeal, and her recent emergence on the global stage. They celebrate Austen's many transformations: in biography, film, blog, sequels, and literary tourism." Kathryn Sutherland, Professorial Fellow in English, Oxford University, UK

"The editors of Uses of Austen, Gillian Dow and Clare Hanson, have succeeded in bringing together a remarkably coherent selection of essays that offer a rich account of the many ways in which Austen has been reimagined over the last century." Richard de Ritter, The BARS Journal
