    A Jane Austen Education Kindle õ A JaneMOBI :æ jane mobile, austen pdf, education book, A Jane download, A Jane Austen Education PDFEPUBFormer associate professor William Deresiewicz has written what is today a rather unusual type of book At first blush it looks like an entry in the exploding genre of popular Jane Austen criticism and in a way it could be so described But it’s really of a memoir—a memoir that uses literary criticism as a vehicle for explaining the author’s moral and intellectual development at a certain stage of his life Seen in that light it is a throwback to a kind of book that was common in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries it could be regarded as a lineal descendant of young English gentlemen’s accounts of their Grand Tours replete with literary allusion and intellectual name dropping and insights about the world—but adapted to modern confessional sensibilities If

    A Jane Austen Education Kindle õ A JaneMOBI :æ jane mobile, austen pdf, education book, A Jane download, A Jane Austen Education PDFEPUBWe have long harbored the belief that everything worth knowing about life and love can be learned in a Jane Austen novel William Deresiewicz thinks so too and we could not be happier In A Jane Austen Education he soundly reaffirms our opinion that the world would be a better place if everyone just paid attention and listened to Jane AustenWe realize that he is preaching to the choir here but thought it important to point out that he started out in a much different place as a twenty six year old graduate student who thought Austen was all girly romance and banal social drivel He may have been as arrogant as Mr Darcy as clueless as Emma Woodhouse and opinionated as Lady Catherine de Bourgh when it came to acknowledging Austen’s understated writing skills and message to her readers but during the process of reading Emma one of Austen’s most scrutinized and acclaimed novels he

    A Jane Austen Education Kindle õ A JaneMOBI :æ jane mobile, austen pdf, education book, A Jane download, A Jane Austen Education PDFEPUBThis book is a blend of light textual analysis Jane Austen biography and memoir As I haven't studied literature beyond high school I enjoyed the textual analysis and did gain a new perspective of aspects of these texts I also enjoyed the biographical information especially the uotes from letters written by Austen and her familyWhat I found incredibly frustrating about this book was the memoir aspect Basically Deresiewicz says he was a self centred arrogant psuedo intellectual who is a bit of a wanker He reads Emma female fiction he had previously thought below him and it changed his life It makes him appreciate the small things; the mutinae of his life and those of his friends and the people around him and therefore he becomes a better person So far so good I have met my fair share of university wankers and have done uite a bit of cringe worthy arrogant posturing myself so t

    A Jane Austen Education Kindle õ A JaneMOBI :æ jane mobile, austen pdf, education book, A Jane download, A Jane Austen Education PDFEPUBI don’t read Jane Austen’s novels for life lessons Neither do I read her for history romance or social commentary I read Jane Austen because I have never and I mean that uneuivocally met an author with such a gift for words However this does not mean that I won’t read and enjoy the lessons someone else has gleaned from her work In fact I have probably read words about Austen and her works than she has actually written the juvenilia and incomplete works included As far as criticism and commentary go this book is not a bad place to start Part memoir part critical examination A Jane Austen Education combines the author’s personal experience with a fairly close reading of Austen’s six major works Each of Austen’s book
