Pleasure and Profit: Re-presentations of Jane Austens’s Ever-Expanding Universe
Umeå University.
2013 (English)In: Global Jane Austen: Pleasure, Passion, and Possessiveness in the Jane Austen Community / [ed] Laurence Raw & Robert G. Dryden, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013, 203-220 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This chapter takes a closer look at some examples of the numerous re-presentations of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as it asks what these re-presentations add to the global Austen (text)-universe. By re-contextualizing the story, they emphasize past and present gender roles and same-sex relationships. They also illustrate the wish to interact with Austen’s novel, the desire to tell their side of the story, to alter or to continue the story. Austen’s readers take pleasure in her fiction and feel passionately for her characters. This chapter explores the expansion of the Austen (text)-universe and asks whether this expansion is about pleasure or profit.
