9780300054491: Jane Austen: Real and Imagined Worlds

In this book a distinguished historian explores the novels of Jane Austen, showing how they illuminate English history in the quarter century before 1792 and 1817 and how, in turn, an appreciation of this period in history enriches our reading of the novels. Oliver MacDonagh paints a picture of Jane Austen’s life and personality and of the social and political worlds she inhabited during and immediately after the Napoleonic Wars. Analyzing her letters as well as her novels, he shows how Austen’s experiences and her reactions to events were woven into her fiction.

 

Each chapter combines an examination of Jane Austen’s ideas and conduct in a particular field with a consideration of her treatment of the same subject in one or more of her works. MacDonagh compares the place of the Anglican Church in her life to the role of the Church of England in Mansfield Park, juxtaposes her own family relations to those of the Elliots, Musgroves, and Crofts in Persuasion, and shows how her economic vicissitudes are reflected in the use of money as the moving force in Sense and Sensibility. In the same way, other chapters tackle the themes of girlhood and education, marriage and the contemporary female economy, and local society. In every case Austen’s real and imagined worlds richly illuminate on another, providing new insights for all readers of her work.

From the Back Cover:

In this elegant and fascinating book, a distinguished historian shows how Jan Austen's novels illuminate early nineteenth-century English history and how, in turn, an appreciation of this period in history enriches our reading of the novels.

From Library Journal:

Austen is occasionally criticized for being unconscious of the social history and politics of her own times. MacDonagh ably demonstrates the contrary; in fact, Austen's writings may themselves be used as historical illustrations for Georgian and Regency England. He discusses religion, economics, education, family life, and county society within the framework of Austen's life and writings as well as contemporary British history and politics. His bibliographical references are especially useful. MacDonagh is a historian, retired from Australian National University in Canberra, and the author of several works on British and Irish history, including the well-received two-volume biography of Daniel O'Connell ( The Hereditary Bondsman , St. Martin's, 1988, and The Emancipist , St. Martin's, 1989); he is also an avowed Austenite, who quotes as readily from Lady Susan as from Mansfield Park . This book should interest both students of English social history and students of Austen.
