9780141001920: The Friendly Jane Austen: A Well-Mannered Introduction to a Lady of Sense and Sensibility

Every generation rediscovers Jane Austen with a renewed passion for her timeless stories of romance, family relations, and foibles of human nature. Today she is more popular than ever. Natalie Tyler captures the essence of this enthusiasm in a book that shuns obscure academic approaches and provides lively

discussions about every one of Austen's novels and characters. Readers can experience the highlights of Austen's early writings, learn about the man who almost won her hand, and puzzle over what on earth she meant by the last line of Persuasion. Tyler includes quizzes, eye-catching illustrations, interviews with Austen scholars and lovers of her work-such as Jane Smiley, T. C. Boyle, and Miss Manners-plus a filmography, a bibliography, and browsable quotes and sidebars to create this wildly entertaining Austen

companion.

About the Author:

Natalie Tyler has been a devoted Jane Austen scholar and lecturer for more than a decade. She is a professor at Ohio State University.

From Library Journal:

Like an Austen novel, the depths of this work are easy to miss in its light tone, which screens a panoply of Austen paraphernalia. Part of the "Friendly" pop reference series, this title marries in-depth information about Jane Austen's work and world with an easy-to-read and fun format. Full of quizzes, illustrations, quotes, and interviews with scholars and actors, this work can be read straight through or dipped into at leisure. Tyler provides the reader with concise, valuable information on Austen's juvenilia, her novels, and the films based on those novels. Also included are notes on period ideas and items that will increase the reader's understanding and appreciation of the novels, among them recipes for syllabub and Bakewell pudding and the differences between a rake and a rattle. This title will be welcome reading for students and Austen fans alike. Recommended for public libraries.AKaren E. Sadowski, Simmons Coll.
