"Es ist eine allgemein anerkannte Wahrheit, dass ein Junggeselle im Besitz eines schönen Vermögens nichts dringender braucht als eine Frau." - Dieser berühmte Satz steht am Anfang eines Romans, der zu den erfolgreichsten Liebesgeschichten der Weltliteratur gehört. Eine gehörige Portion "Stolz" muss abgelegt und so manches "Vorurteil" aus dem Weg geräumt werden, bis Elizabeth und Mr. Darcy endlich ein Paar werden.

Discussions of Charlotte Bronte typically focus on the psychological, biographical, and social forces underpinning her fiction. This book, by contrast, emphasizes the conscious artistry of the author of Jane Eyre, Shirley, and Villette. Patricia Wheat suggests that Bronte's writing can be better understood by an examination of her literary criticism. She traces Bronte's comments on literature from lists of favorite childhood authors through years of responding to advice from G. H. Lewes and publishers George Smith and W. S. Williams, to later editorial efforts such as the reading of novels by Thackeray and Martineau in manuscript, and the editing of the works of Emily and Anne Bronte. The central characters in Bronte's fiction have moments when they gain insight into the character of people whose personalities had previously puzzled them. Similarly, Wheat argues, the gate way for Bronte to the "adytum of the heart," the innermost room of the artist's soul, was the novel. The experience a reader undergoes when perusing a new novel parallels the spiritual probing of Bronte's central characters when they meet other characters. The reader's task, like that of a Bronte heroine, is to look beneath the surface. To Bronte, every true work of art, when rightly understood, was a marriage between Jane and Rochester, between the reader and the author. The Adytum of the Heart examines in detail Bronte's commentary on three famous novels--Pride and Prejudice, Vanity Fair, and Wuthering Heights--and relates each to Bronte's own fiction. The book reconstructs the similarities G. H. Lewes must have noted between Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice, applying Bronte's critical terminology to pinpoint what she saw as Austen's limitations. Wheat's reading of Bronte's handwritten letters enables her to uncover errors and omissions in printed editions. The kindest words Bronte ever wrote about Jane Austen are published here for the first time, tempering the usual pitting of Austen's "restraint" against Bronte's "passion." Another chapter defines the characteristics Bronte valued in Thackeray's work, and identifies echoes of Vanity Fair in Shirley. Wheat also suggests that Bronte's initial admiration for Thackeray--and her dedication of the second edition of Jane Eyre to him--may have been sparked by publishers' ideas for gaining Bronte a wider readership. Finally, Wheat demonstrates how Bronte defended Wuthering Heights not only in her preface to it, but also in Villette, which she began immediately alter rereading her sister's masterpiece. The book includes a chronology of Bronte's readings and literary activities, and an appendix listing the library locations of many of her widely scattered letters.

What happened after Mr. Darcy married Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice? Where did Heathcliff go when he disappeared in Wuthering Heights? What social ostracism would Hester Prynne of The Scarlet Letter have faced in 20th century America? Great novels often leave behind great questions, and sequels seek to answer them. This critical analysis offers fresh insights into the sequels to seven literary classics, including Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, the Brontë sisters’ Jane Eyre, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, and Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.

Jane Austen’s career as a novelist began in 1811 with the publication of Sense and Sensibility. Her work was finally adapted for the big screen with the 1940 filming of Pride and Prejudice (very successful at the box office). No other film adaptation of an Austen novel was made for theatrical release until 1995. Amazingly, during 1995 and 1996, six film and television adaptations appeared, first Clueless, then Persuasion, followed by Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, the Miramax Emma, and the Meridian/A&E Emma. This book traces the history of film and television adaptations (nearly 30 to date) of Jane Austen manuscripts, compares the adaptations to the manuscripts, compares the way different adaptations treat the novels, and analyzes the adaptations as examples of cinematic art. The first of seven chapters explains why the novels of Jane Austen have become a popular source of film and television adaptations. The following six chapters each cover one of Austen’s novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey. Each chapter begins with a summary of the main events of the novel. Then a history of the adaptations is presented followed by an analysis of the unique qualities of each adaptation, a comparison of these adaptations to each other and to the novels on which they are based, and a reflection of relevant film and literary criticism as it applies to the adaptations.
