Book Cover
Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:

Following in the tradition of the critically acclaimed All Things Shakespeare (Greenwood, 2002), this similarly formatted encyclopedia takes readers from the works of Jane Austen into her world. More than 150 alphabetically arranged entries provide rich and fascinating historical details on the form and function of everyday and obscure objects that are mentioned in Austen's novels. Numerous illustrations accompany the lively and often humorous essays that bring these works of fiction to life.

Students and devotees of Jane Austen will become familiar with what her characters ate, wore, and did for recreation. Well-researched information is presented about domestic items, the social scene, the workplace, the church, special events and rituals, and everyday customs that constituted life in Jane Austen's England.

Readers can find citations of specific works by Austen, or they can look up terms or concepts. A bibliography arranged according to broad subjects lists major works for further reading. Teachers and students will find myriad uses for this reference, while the lively writing will appeal to general readers who want to gaze into Austen's world.
