   schema:description "The essays collected in this novel examine Austen's understanding of the arts, her aesthetic philosophy, and her role as artist. Together, they explore Austen's connections with Edmund Burke, Adam Smith, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Madame de Staël, Joanna Baillie, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Mary Anne Schimmelpenninck, and other writers engaged in debates on the sensuous experience and the intellectual judgment of art. The contributors look at Austen's engagement with diverse art forms, such as painting, ballet, drama, poetry, and music, investigating their topic within historically grounded and theoretically nuanced essays. They represent Austen as a writer-thinker reflecting on the nature and practice of artistic creation and considering the social, moral, psychological, and theoretical functions of art in her fiction. Natasha Duquette and Elisabeth Lenckos suggest that Austen knew, modified, and transformed the dominant aesthetic discourses of her era, at times ironically, to her own artistic ends. As a result, a new and compelling image of Austen emerges, a "portrait of a lady artist," confidently promoting a distinctly post-Enlightenment aesthetic system of her own."@en ;
