Summary
"Romantic Austen: Sexual Politics and the Literary Canon is the first full-length scholarly monograph to examine Jane Austen's writings within the traditions of Romanticism. It argues that Austen's central position within the literary canon can be fully understood only by locating her work within the Romantic cultural traditions. Taking the contemporary Austen revival as its cue, the study presents a series of historically contexualized readings of Austen's juvenilia (Catharine, or The Bower and The History of England), Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park and Austen's posthumously published novel, Sanditon, to examine ways in which Romantic-period definitions of nation, culture and literature continue to function in contemporary readings of Austen and her period. An investigation of the sexual politics of national culture, heritage culture and literary canon-formation informs the study's discussion of the relationship between Romanticism, Austen and the literary canon."--BOOK JACKET
