] Traci P has put a long post up on the "Emma" Board about incomes and lifestyles in JA's novels. I thought it was really interesting, so have linked it below.
] Has anyone else come across this book? What else is in it?Would it be a good one for the bib?
Thanks for taking care of the link Caroline. Regarding the book, I was happily obliged to purchase the book this semester for my "Jane Austen and the Brontës" class and have found it very helpful. Including the book or listing the essays in the bib section is a great idea. Here is the info on the book:
The Cambridge Companion to Jane Austen. Ed. Edward Copeland and Juliet McMaster. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997.
[blurb from back]"Leading scholars present a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to Jane Austen's works in the contexts of her contemporary world, and of present-day critical discourse. Beside discussions of Austen's novels and letters, there are essays on religion, politics, class-consciousness, publishing practices, domestic economy, style in the novels and the significance of her juvenile works. A chronology provides biographical information, and assessments of the history of Austen criticism highlight the most recent studies in a vast field of critical diversity."
I bought it for $17.95 at my campus book store. Also, I can email and/or post the names and authors of the individual essays if that would be helpful (I didn't want to create another REALLY long post).
