Jane Austen by Tony Tanner

Book Description

Tony Tanner's classic text on Jane Austen addresses the issues that have always occupied the author's most perceptive critics, and offers an illuminating and refreshing analysis of Austen's novels. Tanner shows how Austen changed from a basically accepting view of 'society' to a more questioning one and considers the problems of authority, power and the position of women, as well as the relationship between ethics, language and behaviour. This reissued edition features a new Preface by leading Romantic scholar Marilyn Gaull who examines Tanner's background and places the original work in context. Lively and informative, the Preface helps to reinforce and explain the continued importance of Tanner's work. Accompanied by an insightful Note on the Text by Austen scholar John Wiltshire, and an expanded Bibliography and Index, this is a timely republication of a study which is now regarded as one of the finest, and most accessible, introductions to a great novelist.

Prefaces to Shakespeare by Tony Tanner Prefaces to Shakespeare, Paperback (May 2012)

In the final ten years of his life, the author tackled the largest project any critic in English can take on - writing a preface to each of Shakespeare's plays. This title collects these prefaces. It introduces some of the most significant scholarship on Shakespeare to show the reader how certain critics frame large issues in a useful way.

Great Gatsby by Tony Tanner Great Gatsby, Hardback (November 2010)

For Jay Gatsby - young, handsome, fabulously rich - always seems alone in the crowd, watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. Beneath the shimmering surface of his life he is hiding a secret: a silent longing for the one thing that will always be out of his reach. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.

Sense and Sensibility by Tony Tanner Sense and Sensibility, Hardback (November 2008)

Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo.

Pride and Prejudice by Tony Tanner Pride and Prejudice, Hardback (November 2008)

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more.
