A Student's Guide to Jane Austen

Series: Understanding Literature

By Connie Ann Kirk, Ph.D.

Jane Austen was an English novelist. Her insights into women’s lives and her mastery of form and irony have made her one of the most noted and influential novelists of her time. In A STUDENT’S GUIDE TO JANE AUSTEN, Austen’s life and work are examined, offering accessible insight for young readers. Each work is placed in historical and biographical context, with special emphasis placed on curriculum-related works SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, and EMMA, in addition to other lesser-known works.
