Jane Austen and Names un breve ma interessante saggio che prende in considerazione tutti i nomi utilizzati nei romanzi della famosa scrittrice inglese, tentando di scoprire , di volta in volta, il motivo della scelta.
Il saggio si compone di numerose sezioni, tra cui Jane Austen s feelings for names e Names in the novels of Jane Austen.
Maggie Lane ha di sicuro compiuto un grosso lavoro le sue teorie si ricollegano spesso ai contenuti delle lettere private di Jane Austen e quindi direttamente ai suoi gusti personali e alle sue opinioni , mentre l ultima sezione del libro elenca in ordine alfabetico tutti, ma proprio tutti, i nomi utilizzati nei romanzi, anche quelli di giardinieri o cameriere apparsi una sola volta.
L autrice ci spiega quali fossero i nomi pi in voga quando Jane Austen scrisse i suoi romanzi, quali venissero ormai utilizzati solo dalle class They say his name is Henry A proof of how unequally the gifts of Fortune are bestowed I have seen many a John Thomas much agreeablefrom J Austen, Letters What s in a name According to William Shakespeare or better his Juliet not so much, That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet But Maggie Lane thinks otherwise and has researched the importance given to names by Jane Austen, especially in her mature work That means Ms Lane focuses her analysis on the major six novels Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion In the six sections of the book, the author proposes interesting reflections, comparisons and analysis related to the use of names in history, in Jane Austen s time and in Jane Austen s most famous novels A Brief History of Name
