Jane Austen and Comedy

Edited by Erin Goss
Bucknell University Press

In bringing together Austen and comedy, which are both often dismissed as superfluous or irrelevant to a contemporary world, this collection of essays directs attention to the ways we laugh, the ways that Austen may make us do so, and the ways that our laughter is conditioned by the form in which Austen writes: comedy. Ultimately, Jane Austen and Comedy invites its reader to take seriously Austen’s production of laughter and to keep laughing nonetheless.

Novel Bodies

Disability and Sexuality in Eighteenth-Century British Literature

Bucknell University Press

Novel Bodies examines the significant role that disability plays in shaping the British literary history of sexuality. Farr shows that various eighteenth-century novelists represent disability and sexuality in flexible ways to reconfigure the political and social landscapes of eighteenth-century Britain. In imagining the lived experience of disability as analogous to—and as informed by—queer genders and sexualities, the authors featured reveal emerging ideas of able-bodiedness and heterosexuality as interconnected systems that sustain dominant models of courtship, reproduction, and degeneracy.
