Richard Gill is the author of "Mastering English Literature" and "Mastering Shakespeare".

This volume is a useful companion for anyone studying the works of Jane Austen.

An account of the six most-read Austen novels, it provides a detailed critique of "Northanger Abbey", "Sense and Sensibility", "Pride and Prejudice", "Mansfield Park", "Emma" and "Persuasion", linking the significance of the works from the past to the present day in the light of contemporary attitudes to women, tradition and innovation.

The book explores the influence of art, architecture, music, literature, theology, philosophy, history and politics in the novels, and discusses both traditional and contemporary literary theory, examining Austen's use of wit and irony and the nuances of her vocabulary.
