9780711232457: A Dance with Jane Austen: How a Novelist and Her Characters Went to the Ball

“The period illustrations and dance diagrams are charming, but Fullerton's discussion of dance in Austen's novels is both incisive and entertaining. From the Netherfield ball in Pride and Prejudice to Anne Elliot playing the piano as her friends dance in Persuasion, Fullerton explains how dancing moves the action forward in each book and what it reveals about various characters. (She even draws heavily on the unfinished The Watsons.) By the end, readers will long to revisit the dance scenes in Austen's world and follow her heroines' practice of talking over the ball afterward with friends over a cup of tea. A beautifully illustrated exploration of dance in the life and novels of Jane Austen. “ -Shelf Awareness

Drawing on contemporary accounts and illustrations, and a close reading of the novels as well as Austen's correspondence, Susannah Fullerton takes the reader through all the stages of a Regency Ball as Jane Austen and her characters would have known it.

Review:

'Susannah Fullerton has done her research and written a book that will give much pleasure to anyone interested in the kind of dancing which Jane Austen and her contemporaries enjoyed. Lavishly illustrated, (and the piccies are seriously pretty), the book will tell you all sorts of thngs you didn't realise you wnated to know, while introducing you to a world of swirling, twirling silk and satin designed to advertise the beautiful people on the hunt for a mate.' Jane Austen Society Newsletter 'Drawing upon contemporary accounts, Austen's own correspondence, and a detailed reading of the novels, Fullerton presents the reader with a charming insider's guide to a Regency ball.' Good Book Guide 'readers wishing for more details about Austen's ball scenes, for a clearer sense of what would be worn at a ball, what kind of music would be played, and what sort of manners were typical, will want to consult A Dance with Jane Austen.' Times Literary Supplement

Descripción Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jane Austen loved to put on her satin slippers with shoe-roses, her white gloves and muslin gown, and go off for an evening of fun at the Basingstoke assemblies. The Bennet girls share their creator s delight and go off joyfully to dance, and of course to meet future husbands. Drawing on contemporary accounts and illustrations, and a close reading of the novels as well as Austen s correspondence, Susannah Fullerton takes the reader through all the stages of a Regency Ball as Jane Austen and her characters would have known it. Her subjects learn their steps, dress in readiness, find transport to convey them to a ball, choose between public and private balls, worry over a shortage of men, prefer a cotillion to a quadrille, talk and flirt with their partners, sustain themselves with supper, fall in love, and then go home to talk it all over at the end.
