Reviews

"Moore's beautifully researched, original, and compelling work of scholarship provides a full and nuanced account of the nostalgia for Catholic monasteries evident in Austen's work. The book is revelatory, and will open the eyes of many a reader to Austen's deep game of historical and cultural critique." - Laura Mooneyham White, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, USA

"Moore's historically informed close readings, coupled with his deep knowledge of Austen's attentiveness to religious matters, sets the stage for future studies of her other novels along similar lines. The result is an authoritative volume on Austen's participation in a tradition of English religious criticism. A boon to students and scholars of English literary history, this book also is precisely what Austen lovers need to have on hand if they truly want to answer the question, "What would Jane do?" - William E. Engel, Sewanee Review, Volume 124, Number 4, Fall 2016, pp. 665-666

"Roger Moore is an excellent writer. (...) Libraries should buy it." - Rachel M. Brownstein, JASNA News, Spring 2017
