Food And The Fiction Of Jane Austen

Sounds like a doctoral dissertation, doesn’t it? Mrs Bennet uses it to impress, Emma to care for her father and a distraught Marianne Dashwood refuses it all together. Pen Vogler examines the importance of food and dining in Jane Austen’s fiction. And, yes, in the photo of the 1996 “Emma,” that’s Alan Cumming on the left, back when he was young and plucky and not in love with America Ferrera on “The Good Wife.”
