"[Auerbach's] detailed knowledge of Austen's sources [gives] us a more complete impression of Austen's wide and eclectic interests." - New York Review of Books "The Austen sketched here is an ambitious novelist, confident in her superior talent, with a subversive and biting sense of humor.... Readers who enjoyed the novel The Jane Austen Book Club will find similar pleasures here." - Publishers Weekly "Emily Auerbach's approach to Jane Austen is lively, engaging, and thoroughly modern. Like Austen, Auerbach wears her wide learning lightly and imparts a great deal of information in a most enjoyable manner. A witty, approachable introduction to Jane Austen for today's readers, using modern analytical techniques to reveal new aspects of a great writer." - Margaret Drabble, editor of the Oxford Companion to English Literature "This 'search' for Jane Austen finds the playfulness and irreverence of her early writings present, to varying degrees, in all of the novels, but also finds a daring and powerful artist polishing her craft. Novel by novel, Auerbach overturns patronizing concepts about Austen's tiny canvas and limited view." - Booklist"


A study of Jane Austen's life and writings, this work surveys two centuries of editing, censorship, and fiction that created a pious, wistful, romantically pining, and frustrated Austen. It serves up an antidote to that icon - a dynamic, brave, and buoyant writer - by examining subtle self-portraits in the author's works.

finally, a fresh view of jane austen 6. August 2006
Von Altica - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
What a wonderful addition to the genre. A fresh view of Jane Austen as anything but a quiet spinster. Fabulous research on the ways her family tried to sanitize her image, and the ways publishers and critics have fallen for this trick, to the point of revising her very appearance. For the sassy author of books that pointedly, acidly and poignantly highlighted the constraints faced by women, the constricted view of Austen herself seems like some kind of perverse performance art. Auerbach's book gives Austen back her original appearance and her original personality. You will enjoy it. Guaranteed.

An excellent book on the image vs the reality of Jane Austen 28. Januar 2007
Von Elizabeth A. Root - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Emily Auerbach may be in danger of being drummed out of academia for writing a book that is so well-researched and so detailed, and yet so readable. Auerbach's concern is the attempts by Austen's relatives and earlier literary critics to present Austen as a meek and mild cardboard saint. There is nothing particularly new in this idea, but it is very well and thoroughly done. While several biographers have made similar arguments, none is a thorough and convincing as this specialized monograph.

Auerbach pays particular attention to the representations of Austen. She seems to feel that the portrait by Austen's sister Cassandra is the only valid image. Well, arguably it is the only portrait that shows her face. Auerbach does not examine other representations of doubtful authenticity. While I see what she is driving at, I think this is perhaps a trifle overdone. Cassandra's portrait is rough and unfinished, and I wonder whether it would have been used prior to some of the aesthetic changes of "modern art", even if JA looked timid and pious. The two most commonly reproduced engravings really don't strike me as such terrible revisions of Cassandra's portrait, with the significant exception of removing the lines around the mouth, and in one case, adding a wedding ring. I don't think the ruffles are a serious distortion: it's not like JA was in the habit of dressing like a man or a particularly no-nonsense Puritan. She may have had ruffles: CA's portrait is too unfinished to assert that she didn't. At least she is still wearing her habitual cap, unlike the portrait that shows her with her hair fashionably dressed. The issues of the lines around the mouth does reveal one tension in the book (and in several recent works about JA): Auerbach is rather annoyed that Valerie Myers describes JA as looking like a peevish hamster in CA's portrait. I would have said guinea pig was more like it, but what if she does? One the one hand, Auerbach seems to want warts and all, and on the other she seems to want to insist that there were no warts. I am not certain what Auerbach is saying about the picture that represents JA sitting by a Hollywood swimming pool talking on her cell phone, but I love that particular picture -- I think it's a hoot.

But, forget trivial cavils. The most important distortions are in the written record; Auerbach has obviously done heroic research and thoroughly supports her opinions about written materials. The critiques that she has made of certain books that I liked make me want to rush back and reread them in the light of her remarks. At one point, Auerbach begins an indepth analysis of the poem from which a quote is taken. I was originally somewhat dubious about this: sometimes when I quote a line out of context, I mean it to be understood out of context, but she carefully show how the quotes throughout the book complement and support one another. I was converted to her point of view.

Auerbach believes in my favorite Jane Austen; almost terrifyingly perceptive and well aware that life is complex and there are few simple answers. Auerbach seems to have a thorough understanding of the literature and was very taken with most of her arguments.

The book has numerous blank-and-white illustrations.

I would recommend this to any Jane Austen collection.

A Monumental Search 27. Februar 2005
Von M. Bloomer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Jane Austen's clergyman brother, along with other relatives, seemed to have some misguided need to present an image of her to the public which, sadly, has endured. Emily Auerbach, through a prodigious examination of Austen's novels and other writings dispels this myth of a docile, sweet, and gentle Jane Austen. I like to picture Ms. Austen giving a hearty salute to Ms. Auerbach for what she has accomplished with this book.

An added bonus is to be found in the appendix in which Auerbach examines the question, "Did Mark Twain really hate Jane Austen?" I think her answer is "dead-on" right.

THE book for the true Austen aficionado 24. Dezember 2006
Von Nancy Jenkins - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read so many essays and articles and books re Austen's works-- talk about searching for Jane Austen. Auerbach's book is not only more comprehensive, but, to paraphrase Elizabeth Bennett, 5 TIMES as spot on as any of them. Really more like 100 times. I feel that for the first time someone really understands her. It is such a tremendous relief and such a great pleasure to read, when I can relax and know I'm in the right hands. Get this book if you love Jane Austen.

Especially recommended for college library literary criticism reference collection 5. Mai 2006
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Searching For Jane Austen studies the life and writings of Jane Austen, the well-known author of numerous literary classics. In particular, Searching For Jane Austen devotes itself to six of Austen's novels, scrutinizing not only the works themselves but two hundred years of literary criticism about "Northanger Abbey", "Sense and Sensibility", "Pride and Prejudice", "Mansfield Park", and "Emma". Author and English professor Emily Auerbach challenges the perceived image of Austen as pining and romantically frustrated, instead presenting a bold counter-portrait of Austen as buoyant, fearless, and adaptable. A handful of black-and-white illustrations intersperse the respectful yet lively text. Additional chapters discuss how Austen is viewed today, and an appendix closely examines Mark Twain's notorious disdain for Austen's works - was this petty rivalry, serious-minded repugnance, or jocular tongue-in-cheek mockery?
