Jane Austen, a Reassessment

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 1982 - Literary Criticism - 208 pages
1 Review
This book lifts Austen studies to a level of debate which is exciting, happy and tough. That she is one of the greatest philosopher-novelists of the Romantic Age is Peter Scott's conviction. He reads Mansfield Park as a ripe complex argument about discipline, Sense and Sensibility is valued as one of the great tragic novels of Europe, and Emma is viewed as brilliant but specious.
