About this book

Who owns, who buys, who gives, and who notices objects is always significant in Austen's writing, placing characters socially and characterizing them symbolically. Jane Austen's Possessions and Dispossessions looks at the significance of objects in Austen's major novels, fragments, and juvenilia.

Reviews

"Byrne is a knowledgeable guide to a fascinating topic. Her study is well-informed and has a well-stocked bibliography to peruse she always discusses interesting aspects of Austen's novels Byrne has a solid contribution to make to a rich field of study. The most interesting conclusion from her study is that we, Austen's readers, have done so much work in imagining her fictional worlds, without feeling particularly strained or even aware of it." Andre van Loon, JASNA News
