Reviews

Praise for Jane Austen and the Theatre: 'This scholarly, perceptive book leaves you wanting more from the same author.' Loraine Fletcher, Independent 'The definitive and pioneering work on the subject ... Byrne's perspective as a theatre historian exposes much that is original ... Jane Austen and the Theatre has much to say to the theatre historian about an extraordinary member of the late-eighteenth century audience, and a great deal more to teach the literary critic about that theatregoer's own art.' Michael Caines, TLS 'Fascinating and elegant ... invaluable as an academic study of the way that Austen, like Henry James after her, made brilliant use of theatrical techniques.' Miranda Seymour, Spectator
