Book Review #883
The Cambridge Companion to Jane Austen edited by Edward Copeland and Juliet McMaster
Rating: three stars (out of four)
Of the several essays I read in this book I enjoyed them and thought they did a good job of pointing out key features in the novels. There were a couple of essays that I was a little shocked with the mannerisms of the authors - they didn't seem dignified enough, or they were using some slang that I would never get away with putting in my paper. But I learned something from every essay I read and I thought it was a good way to get knowledge about a certain subject/element in the novel that I might not have known about. I'd recommend for an Austen enthusiast.
