9780192836038: Can Jane Eyre Be Happy?: More Puzzles in Classic Fiction (Oxford World's Classics)

The exciting sequel to the enormously successful Is Heathcliff A Murderer?, John Sutherland's latest collection of literary puzzles, Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? turns up unexpected and brain-teasing aspects of the range of canonical British and American fiction represented in the World's Classics list. With bold imaginative speculation he investigates thirty-four literary conundrums, ranging from Daniel Defoe to Virginia Woolf.
Covering issues well beyond the strict confines of Victorian fiction, Sutherland explores the questions readers often ask but critics rarely discuss: Why does Robinson Crusoe find only one footprint? How does Magwitch swim to shore with a great iron on his leg? Where does Fanny Hill keep her contraceptives? Whose side is Hawkeye on? And how does Clarissa Dalloway get home so quickly?
As in its universally well received predecessor, the questions and answers in Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? are ingenious and convincing, and return the reader with new respect to the great novels they celebrate.

About the Author:


John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College, London. He has edited a number of World's Classics, including works by Anthony Trollope, Jack London, and Thackeray, and is the author of the best-selling Is Heathcliff a Murderer? Puzzles in 19th-Century Fiction (W/C, 1996).

Review:


"Sutherland is back with a new box of literary-critical conundrums....The wit is...sparkling, and the learning is formidably sustained."--Times Literary Supplement


"Sutherland is a marvellous critic, and if he were not so madest and so pragmatically unassuming he might found a new school of fiction criticism....32 literary puzzles which send s back to a famous novel, and make us think hard about its modes of construction and convention....His comments and suggestions are...both fascinatingly learned and full of down-to-earth common sense."--The Times (London)


"A jolly game of hunt the literary slip-up....Half the fun is having thought up the questions in the first place."--The Spectator


"By picking holes in a lot of plots, he both mockes and celebrates English Literature in one witty breath....A wonderful way, in an essay's short space, of reliving the books that haunted your childhood or helped you grow up. Scholarship brought to earth and made human."--Night & Day
