Jane Austen for Beginners PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Jane Austen for Beginners free pdf Jane Austen's novels are classics. They have never been out of print, and have continuously been turned into countless movies and TV series, yet her works still remain largely misunderstood. On their surface, Austen's novels all involve characters from provincial communities in rural England, far removed geographically and thematically from greater social movements, war, industry, colonization, and imperialism. This impression could not be further from the truth. JANE AUSTEN FOR BEGINNERS explores the intentions behind Austen's work. Her examination of money and power, of the marriage market, of social class, and of the rending of the British social fabric of her day are among her many concerns. JANE AUSTEN FOR BEGINNERS will foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of Austen's greatest stories and most memorable characters.
