About this book

Introduction

In these informed and entertaining essays, Juliet McMaster's recurring concern is with the interpenetration of intelligence with emotion among Jane Austen's characters. The author, a leading Jane Austen scholar, begins with an exploration of Austen's burgeoning popularity in our culture, though close studies of lesser-well known works such as 'Love and Friendship' and 'The Watsons', and familiar texts such as 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Emma', moving on to a wide-ranging exploration through all the novels, of the operation of love and the articulation of desire.
