In Jane Austen and Representations of Regency England, Roger Sales looks at Jane Austen's entire oeuve, and views her historically as a Regency writer voicing concerns on the condition of England.
Examining Austen's literary works; her letters - in the context of those of other Regency women; as well as contemporary texts such as television adaptations of her work, Jane Austen and Representations of Regency England reconstructs the breadth of Jane Austen's writing. It also examines:
* her representations of dandyism and masculine identities
* the events of the Regency crisis of 1810-12
* the way in which Austen engaged in topical debates such as healthcare in both Emma and Persuasion.
