Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her first published novel, Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen presents us with the subtle portraits of two contrasting but equally compelling heroines. For sensible Elinor Dashwood and her impetuous younger sister Marianne the prospect of marrying the men they love appears remote. In a world ruled by money and self-interest, the Dashwood sisters have neither fortune nor connections. Concerned for others and for social proprieties, Elinor is ill-equipped to compete with self-centered fortune-hunters like Lucy Steele, while Marianne's unswerving belief in the truth of her own feelings makes her more dangerously susceptible to the designs of unscrupulous men.

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. This revised edition contains new notes, appendices, chronology, and bibliography.

Synopsis:

This glossary offers an introduction to Spanish culture and society, and a route-map to further study. Designed specifically with undergraduates in mind, it contains around 400 short and accessible explanations of the key words, events, figures and concepts in Spain since 1939. From

"Almodovar" and "Basque" to "Xunta de Galicia" and "zarzuela," Spanish Culture and Society gives an interdisciplinary overview of Spanish culture and society, and offers directions for further reading. Covering politics, popular culture, private life, cultural institutions and significant events,

the entries are fully cross-referenced and assume no prior knowledge, making this an essential reference for students of Spanish culture in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
