Miniatures and Morals
Are you a fan of Jane Austen? This is a must-have for you!
|Audience||Ages 14–adult and any fan of Jane Austen or anyone wondering why so many people love her books|
|Accessibility||Very readable; best understood after reading the original works of Jane Austen|
|Author||Peter J. Leithart|
Once again, Peter Leithart applies his intellect and expertise to great works of literature, revealing new depths in our favorite books. Speaking from a theological and literary background, Leithart analyzes character and theme while summarizing each of Austen's major works: Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. Not only are Austen's novels still widely read, they continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly-detailed "miniaturist" execution, they reveal Austen's mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities. She entertains, edifies, and challenges men and women alike. Leithart includes helpful review and thought questions for each section in addition to his own analysis, making this an excellent introduction to Austen for all who desire a richer appreciation of her enduring genius.
