Noted for her witty depictions of English country life and sharply satirical views of class structure and human behavior, 19th-century novelist Jane Austen's works, which include such classics as Emma and Pride and Prejudice, possess a timeless appeal for both general readers and literary scholars. This volume from the new Bloom's Classic Critical Views series showcases essays from Austen's own time period and beyond that create a unique portrait of a writer whose works have remained relevant for more than two centuries.
