About the Book

Jane Austen originally wrote for a Regency period audience and would never have predicted the success of her original works. The slew of variations and adaptations of Austen’s works in both film and contemporary novels has grown into an industry with a fan-base waiting for more. This collection fills the gap in Austen scholarship between 2000 to the current moment. The authors examine universal and contemporary themes in Austen’s literature ranging from classic romance to apocalyptic fiction. Essays cover Austen retellings with a New York City setting, Jane Austen and Islamic culture, and even a plot with zombies. This anthology demonstrates Jane Austen’s enduring talent and relevancy.
