Through three intertiwned histories, this book offers a new way of approaching and reading a very familiar author.One is a history of the transmission and transformation of Jane Austen through manuscripts, critical editions, biographies, and adaptations; a second provides a conspectus of the development of English Studies as a discipline in which the original and primary place of textual criticism is recovered; and a third reviews the role of Oxford University Press in shaping a canon of English texts in the 20th century. Jane Austen can be discovered in all three.
