The Heirs of Jane Austen

Twentieth-Century Writers of the Comedy of Manners


Rachel R. Mather

The Heirs of Jane Austen emphasizes the uniqueness, the similarity, and the diversity in the social comedies of three British writers of the early twentieth century working in the tradition of Jane Austen - Edward F. Benson, E.M. Delafield, and Angela Thirkell. This work demonstrates the enduring charm and appeal of these social interactions that have become social history.
