14 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, Maggie Lane reveals the importance of place in Jane Austen's writings and follows her travels throughout Georgian England.

This illustrated text summons the beauties of the English landscape, recreating the distinctive backdrop for some of the finest novels in English literature

Understanding Austen : key concepts in the six novels by Maggie Lane ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[The author] "turns her attention to the fascinating nuances of Austen's language, and the way it embodies her most profound beliefs about human conduct and character. This book enhances understanding of Austen's moral values through the discussion of key words, investigates changes of meaning, and explains words which may confuse modern readers ... No other author uses abstract nouns as extensively as Jane Austen. Three of her six novels even draw on such words for their titles: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Persuasion. Terms like "elegance," "gentility," and "propriety" seem to define her well-ordered, judgemental world. In making the fine moral, psychological, and social discriminations on which her plots depend, Jane Austen draws on the vocabulary of her age, which is both more abstract and more fixed than that of today. But as this study shows, she was capable of subtlety and even ambiguity in her deployment of such key concepts"--Publisher description
