Resumen:

"This up-to-date companion is the only general guide to Jane Austen, her work, and her world. Josephine Ross explores the literary scene during the time Austen's works first appeared: the books considered classics then, the 'horrid novels' and romances, and the grasping publishers. She looks at the architecture and decor of Austen's era that made up 'the profusion and elegance of modern taste': Regency houses for instance, Chippendale furniture, 'picturesque scenery.' On the smaller scale she answers questions that may baffle modern readers of Austen's work. What, for example, was 'hartshorn'? How did Lizzy Bennet 'let down' her gown to hide her muddy petticoat? Ross shows us the fashions, and the subtle ways Jane Austen used clothes to express her characters. Courtship, marriage, adultery, class and 'rank, ' mundane tasks of ordinary life, all appear, as does the wider political and military world--especially the navy, in which her brothers served"--Jacket.
