About this book
This book combines a feminist perspective with a non-western reading of Jane Austen. The author considers how being a woman shaped Austen's literary attitudes and social thinking, and brings to bear her own post-colonial consciousness in understanding the economics, geography and social conventions of Austen's world. Analysis of the novels focuses on the way Jane Austen's treatment of interrelated issues such as marriage and professions, space and enclosure, art and life, language and artifice, provide the dynamics of narrative in her work.
