Most widely held works by Juliet McMaster
The Cambridge companion to Jane Austen by Edward Copeland( Book )

53 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Cambridge Companion to Jane Austen leading scholars from around the world present Austen's works in two broad contexts: that of her contemporary world, and that of present-day critical discourse. Beside discussions of Austen's novels there are essays on religion, politics, class-consciousness, publishing practices, and domestic economy, which describe the world in which Austen lived and wrote. More traditional issues for literary analysis are then addressed: style in the novels, Austen's letters as literary productions, and the stylistic significance of her juvenile works. The volume concludes with assessments of the history of Austen criticism and the development of Austen as a literary cult-figure; it provides a chronology, and highlights the most interesting studies of Austen in a vast field of contemporary critical diversity

Jane Austen the novelist : essays past and present by Juliet McMaster( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these informed and entertaining essays, Juliet McMaster's recurring concern is with the interpenetration of intelligence with emotion among Jane Austen's characters. The author, a leading Jane Austen scholar, begins with an exploration of Austen's burgeoning popularity in our culture, though close studies of lesser-well known works such as 'Love and Friendship' and 'The Watsons', and familiar texts such as 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Emma', moving on to a wide-ranging exploration through all the novels, of the operation of love and the articulation of desire

Reading the body in the eighteenth-century novel by Juliet McMaster( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A man's body and his mind, ' wrote Sterne's Tristram Shandy, ' ... are exactly like a jerkin, and a jerkin's lining, - rumple the one - you rumple the other.' And by extension, read the one, you understand the other. Eighteenth-century novelists and their readers were used to this principle, and applied it inventively. Physicians read state of mind through physical functions and malfunctions, physiognomists interpreted the soul through the face, actors developed a vocabulary of gesture, painters demonstrated the passing passions as reflected in changing facial expressions; and novelists appropriated all these discourses to make their characters fully legible to their readers. In her lively study of ways to read the body, Juliet McMaster explores these discourses, in which Richardson, Sterne, Burney, Austen, and other novelists were so well read. By her close readings of Clarissa, Tristram Shandy, Camilla, Persuasion, and many other novels, she equips today's readers to read fictional bodies as their original readers read them, and simultaneously renews our joy in these classics
Woman behind the painter : the diaries of Rosalie, Mrs. James Clarke Hook by Rosalie Hook( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosalie Hook's diaries of her doings at home and abroad with her painter husband, James Clarke Hook, provide a window on the Victorian art world. In her long marriage to Hook, Rosalie, herself an artist, recorded not only the striking events of their memorable two-year sojourn in Italy at the time of the Risorgimento, but kept a day-to-day record of their domestic and professional lives through five decades. Woman Behind the Painter comes illustrated with the Hooks' photographs, sketches, and paintings." "The Italy Diary is a full narrative, written with vivid details of their travel to the St. Bernard Pass and to Florence, Rome, Naples, Parma and Venice and ending with the Hooks' harrowing homeward journey, in an ill-equipped vessel between Venice and Gibraltar. The Silverbeck Diary is a much slenderer document, but it covers many more years. In this diary, Rosalie recorded the movements and professional activities of the Hook family and their dealings with artist friends." "Juliet McMaster's biographical and historical introduction and notes make for lively reading while she examines the Hooks' cultural experiences in the turbulent scene of excitement and revolution in Italy, and their busy professional life among such contemporary artists as Samuel Palmer, F.G. Stephens, Millais, Holman Hunt, Alfred Hunt, Birket Foster, and others."--Jacket

Love and friendship by Jane Austen( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a noble youth arrives unannounced to request the hand of the matchless Laura, it seems their future is one of contentment and bliss -- that is until his family learn of the marriage and, one by one, they reject the new bride. So begins the series of unspeakable events that Laura must confront and overcome, by way of the occasional fainting fit and bout of delirium. Tragedy and comedy here go hand in hand as a very foolish young heroine is placed at the centre of Jane Austen's early satire on drawing-room society. Written as a series of letters, 'Love and Friendship' is a delicious romp through the highs and lows of a young girl's lot in life and a precursor of Austen's later works of genius. It is accompanied by 'The Three Sisters', another expertly crafted epistolary novel, and the brilliant 'A Collection of Letters' which has been described by Fay Weldon as 'five just about perfect short stories'
