Article
However much students enjoy their reading of a Jane Austen novel, many find it difficult to know how to organise their critical responses. This book shows students how to develop a firm grasp of Jane Austen's characters, themes and techniques, as well as such central topics as the use of irony in the novels, and their style and moral patterning. In the newly revised and expanded edition of this successful book, Vivien Jones looks at all of Jane Austen's novels, and demonstrates how to analyse both their overall structure and concerns as well as individual passages. A completely new chapter looks at current critical debates about Austen's achievement and the final chapter gives practical advice on writing an essay.
Chapter
Little is directly known of Jane Austen’s acquaintance with the developing female consciousness in the eighteenth century. That she examines the ‘drama of woman’ in her novels is a judgement based on the likelihood that she was sensitive to her social and literary environment, on the similarity between her views and those of ‘feminist’ writers of the 1790s, and, above all, on the evidence of the novels themselves.
