About the Book

Jane Austen wrote for a Regency-period audience and could never have predicted the lasting success of her original works. The slew of variations and adaptations of Austen’s works in both film and novels has grown into an industry with a fan base clamoring for more.
This collection fills a gap in Austen scholarship, examining universal and contemporary themes in the original literature and how the works have been adapted since 2000 onward. Essays explore Austen retellings with a New York City setting, Jane Austen and Islamic culture, and even a plot with zombies. This volume demonstrates Jane Austen’s enduring talent and relevancy.
