MINIATURES AND MORALS
Are you a fan of Jane Austen? This is a must-have for you!
Speaking from a theological and literary background, Leithart analyzes character and theme while summarizing each of Austen's major works: Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. Not only are Austen's novels still widely read, they continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly-detailed "miniaturist" execution, they reveal Austen's mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities.
