Romancing Jane Austen by Ashley Tauchert

Book Description

We celebrate Jane Austen as the mother of the English realist novel, but have you ever wondered why she insists on giving her mature heroines the 'perfect happiness' that can only be realized in the romance? Romancing Jane Austen asks the reader to consider Austen's happy endings as a 'prophetic' rather than merely 'illusory' answer to the contradiction that feminine subjectivity represents for history. A happy ending for the feminine subject? But that would be against all the empirical odds...

Against Transgression by Ashley Tauchert Against Transgression, Paperback (June 2008)

Both a controversial account of the transgressive turn in critical thought characteristic of the moral turmoil of the Twentieth Century, and a provocative study of maternal transfiguration in the author's own turn from Transgression, Against Transgression poses an urgent question for the current generation of literary critics. .

Mary Wollstonecraft and the Accent of the Feminine by Ashley Tauchert Mary Wollstonecraft and the Accent of the Feminine, Hardback (December 2001)

This volume revisits the work of feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft demanding that we leave behind the baggage of years of argument over whether or not Wollstonecraft is feminist. Instead the book offers a Wollstonecraft whose work intervenes in the formation of "womanhood".
