Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In Can Jane Eyre be Happy? John Sutherland poses a further thirty-two literary puzzles in a sequel to his cult classic, Is Heathcliff a Murderer'. Ranging beyond the strict confines of Victorian fiction, he explores the question readers often ask but critics rarely discuss: why does Robinson Crusoe find only one footprint? Where does Fanny Hill keep her contraceptives? Whose side is Hawkeye on? The answers are ingenious and convincing, and return the reader with new respect to the great novels they celebrate. John Sutherland has been hailed as a literary sleuth who combines erudition with bold investigative speculation. Is Heathcliff a Murderer? was acclaimed for its good humour, good sense and good scholarship, and the same qualities illuminate the essays in this volume: scintillating forensic exercises, they are as compelling as the plots they dissect.

Inhaltsangabe: 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.
