Jane Austen and John Mullan
In a world ruled by money and self-interest, the Dashwood sisters have neither fortune nor connections. Through her heroines’ parallel experiences of love, loss, and hope, Jane Austen offers a powerful analysis of the ways in which women’s lives were shaped by the claustrophobic society in which they had to survive.
