Jane Austen, the Secret Radical

Jane Austen, the Secret Radical A sublime piece of literary detective work that shows us once and for all how to be precisely the sort of reader that Austen deserves' Caroline Criado-Perez GuardianAlmost everything we think we know about Jane Austen is wrong Her novels don't confine themselves to grand houses and they were not written just for readers' enjoyment She writes about serious subjects and her books are deeply subversive We just don't read her properly - we haven't been reading her properly for 200 years Jane Austen The Secret Radical puts that right In her first brilliantly original book Austen expert Helena Kelly introduces the reader to a passionate woman living in an age of revolution; to a writer who used what was regarded as the lightest of literary genres the novel to grapple with the weightiest of subjects - feminism slavery abuse the treatment of the poor the power of the Church even evolution - at a time and in a place when to write about such things directly was seen as akin to treason Uncovering a radical spirited and political engaged Austen Jane Austen The Secret Radical will encourage you to read Jane all over again
