Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this delightfully modern spin on Pride and Prejudice, love is a goal, marriage is a distant option, and self-discovery is a sure thing. Welcome to Bennet House, the only all-women's dorm at prestigious Longbourn University, home to three close friends who are about to have an eventful year. EJ is an ambitious Black engineering student. Her best friend, Jamie, is a newly out trans woman studying French and theatre. Tessa is a Filipina astronomy major with guy trouble. For them, Bennet House is more than a residence--it's an oasis of feminism, femininity, and enlightenment. But as great as Longbourn is for academics, EJ knows it can be a wretched place to find love. Yet the fall season is young and brimming with surprising possibilities. Jamie's prospect is Lee Gregory, son of a Hollywood producer and a gentleman so charming he practically sparkles. That leaves EJ with Lee's arrogant best friend, Will. For Jamie's sake, EJ must put up with the disagreeable, distressingly handsome, not quite famous TV actor for as long as she can. What of it? EJ has her eyes on a bigger prize, anyway: launching a spectacular engineering career in the "real world" she's been hearing so much about. But what happens when all their lives become entwined in ways no one could have predicted--and EJ finds herself drawn to a man who's not exactly a perfect fit for the future she has planned?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Women of Fortune tells the compelling story of mercantile wealth, arranged marriages, and merchant heiresses who asserted their rights despite loss, imprisonment, and murder. Following three generations of the Bennet and Morewood families, who made their fortune in Crown finance, the East Indies, the Americas, and moneylending, Linda Levy Peck explores the changing society, economy, and culture of early modern England. The heiresses - curious, intrepid, entrepreneurial, scholarly - married into the aristocracy, fought for their property, and wrote philosophy. One spent years on the Grand Tour. Her life in Europe, despite the outbreak of war, is vividly documented. Another's husband went to debtors' prison. She recovered the fortune and bought shares. Husbands, sons, and contemporaries challenged their independence legally, financially, even violently, but new forms of wealth, education, and the law enabled these heiresses to insist on their own agency, create their own identities, and provide examples for later generations.

Download or read book Jane Austen s Women written by Kathleen Anderson and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on 2018-12-01 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An original critical introduction to women characters in the novels of Jane Austen. Why does Jane Austen “mania” continue unabated in a postmodern world? How does the brilliant Regency novelist speak so personally to today’s women that they view her as their best friend? Jane Austen’s Womenanswers these questions by exploring Austen’s affirming yet challenging vision of both who her dynamic female characters are, and who they become. This important new work analyzes the heroines’ relationships to body, mind, spirit, environment, and society. It reveals how, despite a restrictive patriarchal culture, these women achieve greatness. In clear, lively prose, Kathleen Anderson shares original theoretical insights from twenty years of studying Austen, and illuminates the novels as guidebooks on how to become an Austenian heroine in one’s everyday life. This engaging book will appeal to a broad readership: the serious student, the general lit-lover, and the Austen neophyte alike. “Jane Austen’s Women examines aspects of Austen’s female characters in new ways. Anderson thoroughly and competently sifts through the many meanings of ‘womanhood’ in Austen’s time and, directly or by implication, in our own. It was a pleasure to read this delightful analysis accompanied by illuminating references to our own contemporary culture.” — Susan Ostrov Weisser, author of The Glass Slipper: Women and Love Stories “Jane Austen’s Women hits the sweet spot between delightful critical introduction and inspiring guidebook for how to live out Austen’s vision of what Kathleen Anderson calls ‘the heroinism of everyday life.’ Her discerning close readings of female bodies, emotions, intelligence, work, and love combine lucid interpretation with strong insight. This book will prompt readers of Austen, whether seasoned or beginning, to return to Austen’s novels with vital questions and renewed energy.” — Devoney Looser, author of The Making of Jane Austen

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Jane Austen’s minor female characters expose the economic and social realties of British women in the long eighteenth century and reflect the conflict between intrinsic and expressed value within the evolving marketplace, where fluctuations and fictions inherent in the economic and moral value structures are exposed. Just as the newly-minted paper money was struggling to express its value, so do Austen’s minor female characters struggle to assert their intrinsic value within a marketplace that expresses their worth as bearers of dowries. Austen’s minor female characters expose the plight of women who settle for transactional marriages, become speculators and predators, or become superfluous women who have left the marriage market and battle for personal significance and existence. These characters illustrate the ambiguity of value within the marriage market economy, exposing women’s limited choices. This book employs a socio-historical framework, considering the rise of a competitive consumer economy juxtaposed with affective individualism.

Download or read book Lizzy Bennet Ghost Hunter written by Jemma Thorne and published by Jemma Thorne. This book was released on 2017-03-08 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lizzy Bennet Ghost Hunter is inspired by Jane Austen’s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice, and by the sort of tall tales best heard among the shadows and wavering glow that surrounds a campfire. This is a boxed set of five previously published stories: The Netherfield Phantom, Spectres at Longbourn, Rosings and the Wraith, Ghost of a Pemberley Bride, and Shades of Prejudice Past. Together, the five stories read as a novel and follow the story arc of Pride and Prejudice. In these stories, Lizzy grapples with her strange abilities and even stranger relations…and an unwelcome but growing fondness for a certain gentleman. The Netherfield Phantom A mystery at Netherfield Park…and Lizzy Bennet is going to unravel it. Lizzy Bennet first chased ghosts as a lark. A merry pursuit to enliven her carefree days. Her sister Jane is less sanguine; she’s the one the spirits appear to, the sister unhappily gifted with the sight. But with the Netherfield phantom, all of that will change. Spectres at Longbourn A haunting in Lizzy Bennet’s family home…and the arrival of a long-anticipated visitor. Spirits and spectres crowd Lizzy Bennet’s thoughts after her adventure at Netherfield – maybe that’s why she begins to notice the odd occurrences her first night back at Longbourn. But she has other concerns to contend with. Jane’s growing friendship with Mr. Bingley leaves Lizzy as the target for their visiting cousin’s ambition. Mr. Collins will inherit Longbourn, and he is seeking a wife. Lizzy is determined not to become that unhappy woman. And she’s equally determined to help the spirit haunting Longbourn leave the Bennets for good. Rosings and the Wraith A wealthy heiress in the grip of a suspicious malady…and the increasingly curious behavior of Mr. Darcy. Lizzy Bennet has her hands full. The implications of marriage, or the lack thereof, have never been more on Lizzy Bennet’s mind. With her sister Jane pining for Bingley in London, Lizzy visits Charlotte at her new home in Kent and finds her friend both settled and settling. But her first glimpse of the reclusive heiress Anne de Bourgh brings mystery crashing delightfully into what might otherwise be a quiet trip. When Mr. Darcy and his cousin Colonel Fitzwilliam arrive at Rosings Park, lighthearted Lizzy must begin to face the largest mystery of all – what is it that she really wants? Ghost of a Pemberley Bride Lizzy Bennet’s visit to the grand house of Pemberley reveals another side of the man who loves her. Summer travels with her favorite relatives should have been exactly what Lizzy Bennet needed. Yet the “passenger” spirit she carries is growing heavier by the day. When their trip is cut short and the Gardiners suggest staying near the estate of Pemberley, Lizzy is of two minds. She wants to see the house and is curious to find out what she can about its master, yet she’s sure humiliation will rapidly follow should Mr. Darcy find her there. But upon her arrival, an unsettled spirit seeks her out and Lizzy sees a side of Darcy she never anticipated. Shades of Prejudice Past In this final Lizzy Bennet Ghost Hunter story, Lizzy must learn to make her own choices…in life and in love. The discovery of Lydia’s elopement with Wickham throws the Bennet family into chaos. Her feelings for Darcy awakened after her visit to Pemberley, Lizzy must now admit there’s no possible future for them with her family’s reputation in tatters. She has choices to make. Will she let her ancestor’s whispered prejudices or her social obligations decide her path? Or will she reach for what she wants most in this world, even if it breaks her heart?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The study of literature on screen is a growing area of study in schools and universities. Many students have to produce critical essays comparing the novel and film versions of a particular text. The Screen Adaptations series offers a wealth of study material: from the literary context of the original work, through to thought-provoking comparisons of the screen versions, critical commentary and the afterlife of the films. Pride and Prejudice is a classic piece of literature and any new adaptation is a major event. With several well-known TV and film versions available (featuring stars such as Keira Knightley) as well as a Bollywood version, discussions around how these films interpret the story, themes and characters is a popular classroom choice for students and teachers alike. This new title in the Screen Adaptations series, provides a rich source of material to help students understand and write about the reciprocal relationship between film and literature. It offers in-depth analysis of the various screen versions and alternative `readings' as well as critical insight and an interview with writer Andrew Davies, best known for his 1995 BBC adaptation. Following from Shakespeare, Jane Austen on screen is now an established part of literary studies and the volume will conclude with a survey of the growing body of literature in the field.

She may never get a chance like this again to find the husband of her hopes. Socializing with the best noble families, she attracts a number of suitors. Yet she cannot stop thinking about the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy. Despite their old animosity, he soon captures her heart. His sister Georgiana's matchmaking helps Lizzy's cause. But she cannot read the man himself. Sometimes he seeks her out in company and flatters her with kind words. Sometimes he holds himself aloof.

Book excerpt: This book presents a collection of papers which discuss the origins of the domestic ideal and its effects on activities usually undertaken by women: not only on women’s wage work, but also on activities either not defined as work or accorded an ambiguous status. It discusses the formation of the ideology of domesticity, philanthropy and its effects on official policy and on women, landladies in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, working-class radical suffragists, and Labour Party and trade union attitudes to feminists. Modern society of 1979, when the book was first published, is analysed in a discussion of militancy and acquiescence among women wage workers, a look at how and why the legal system reinforces activity specialisation according to gender, and an examination of why both pre-pre-war capitalism and the modern Welfare State have been unable to meet the needs of dependents. This collection reflects the increasing recognition that in order to understand women’s roles today, it is necessary to examine not only their current manifestations, but also their origins and early development.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the gothic fantasies of Walpole’s Otranto to post-modern takes on the country house by Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan, Phyllis Richardson guides us on a tour through buildings real and imagined to examine how authors’ personal experiences helped to shape the homes that have become icons of English literature. We encounter Jane Austen drinking ‘too much wine’ in the lavish ballroom of a Hampshire manor, discover how Virginia Woolf’s love of Talland House at St Ives is palpable in To the Lighthouse, and find Evelyn Waugh remembering Madresfield Court as he plots Charles Ryder’s return to Brideshead. Drawing on historical sources, biographies, letters, diaries and the novels themselves, House of Fiction opens the doors to these celebrated houses, while offering candid glimpses of the writers who brought them to life.
