In these essays, Juliet McMaster's recurring concern is with the interpenetration of intelligence with emotion among Jane Austen's characters. The author begins with an exploration of Austen's burgeoning popularity in our culture, through close studies of lesser-well known works such as "Love and Friendship" and "The Watsons", and familiar texts such as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Emma". She then moves on to a wide-ranging exploration through all the novels, of the operation of love and the articulation of desire.
