Description

In "Who Betrays Elizabeth Bennet?" John Sutherland unravels 34 literary puzzles in a sequel to his bestselling works "Is Heathcliff a Murderer?" and "Can Jane Eyre Be Happy?". As well as exploring new conundrums Professor Sutherland revisits some previous puzzles with the help of readers who offer their own ingenious solutions, and set fresh posers for investigation. Victorian drug habits, railway systems, sanitation and dentistry are only a few of the areas that shed light on the motives and circumstances of some of literature's most famous characters: Elizabeth Bennet, Betsey Trotwood, Count Dracula, Anna Karenina, Alice and many more come under the spotlight in John Sutherland's highly entertaining collection. 'Sutherland puts humanity and the human, logic and curiosity, back into criticism ...His respect for the realism of texts inspires, inspirits and delights.' - Valentine Cunningham.show more
