about

From Hollywood classics like Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights to the 1990s wave of Jane Austen films, adaptations of the British Nineteenth-century novel have been sensationally popular. This book examines how British and American filmmakers used the domestic novels of the past to construct stable gender ideals for the present.
LIORA BROSH is Lecturer in Literature and Film at Monmouth University, USA.
