Jane Austen: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Watt, Ian, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Virginia Woolf, C. S. Lewis, Edmund Wilson, Ian Watt, Alan D. McKillop, Reuben A. Brower, Marvin Mudrick, Mark Schorer, Arnold Kettle, Lionel Trilling, Kingsley Amis, Andrew H. Wright, Donald J. Greene, and D. W. Harding--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Jane Austen. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. The essays are divided into three sections: general; studies of particular novels; and special topics. A chronology of important dates in Austen's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a 26-item bibliography of works on Austen complete the volume. (LL)
