Henry Dashwood, his second wife, and their three daughters live for many years with Henry's wealthy bachelor uncle. That uncle decides, in late life, to will his property first to Henry, then to Henry's first son John, and then to John's three-year-old son Harry. The uncle dies, but Henry lives just a year after that. On Henry's death, the new owner of the estate, then, is John Dashwood, the child of Henry's first marriage. Henry's second wife, Mrs Dashwood, and their daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret, inherit only a small income. On his deathbed, Mr Henry Dashwood extracts a promise from his son John to take care of his half-sisters. But before Henry is long in the grave, John's greedy wife, Fanny, persuades her husband to renege on the promise, appealing to his concerns about diminishing his own son Harry's inheritance and to the fact that his sisters are but half-blood and therefore undeserving of his family loyalty. Après le décès de Henry Dashwood, ses trois filles, Elinor, Marianne et Margaret, ainsi que leur mère se trouvent privées de leur part d'héritage par leur demi-frère John (né d'un précédent mariage de Henry Dashwood) qui se laisse facilement convaincre par sa femme Fanny qu'il ne leur doit rien. Leur condition financière considérablement diminuée, elles se retrouvent dans une situation particulièrement difficile.

The Reception Of Jane Austen In Europe

This volume of international research provides a wide-ranging account of Jane Austen's reception across the length and breadth of Europe, from Russia and Finland in the North to Italy and Spain in the South. In historical terms, the survey ranges from the near-contemporary - since Austen's novels were available in French very soon after their original publication - to modern times, in those countries which for various reasons, linguistic, historical or ideological, have taken up the novels only in recent years. For many, Austen's novels are valued for their romantic content, as love stories, but increasingly they are being perceived as sophisticated, ironic narratives. In this, the quality of translation has been a significant factor and the many film and television adaptations have played an important part in establishing Austen's reputation amongst the public at large. It will be seen from this that across Europe Austen's 'reception history' is far from uniform and has been shaped by a complex of extra-literary forces.

Suisse romande depuis son mariage, mais ayant passé la première moitié de sa vie aux Pays-Bas où le français était devenu très tôt sa langue « naturelle », Belle de Zuylen / Isabelle de Charrière joue quelque peu les trublions dans nos habitudes académiques. Lire son œuvre – ses lettres, ses romans, ses pamphlets et ses pièces de théâtre – c'est accepter des retouches à notre tableau des Lumières qui n'en ressortira pas indemne ; c'est revoir les limites du champ de la critique littéraire, structuré et hiérarchisé depuis le XIXe siècle en fonction de littératures « nationales ». Bilingue (français et anglais), ce recueil contient des articles basés sur les contributions à un colloque international qui s'est tenu à l'Université d'Utrecht en avril 2005 pour commémorer le bicentenaire de la mort de l'écrivaine.As a Dutch woman who spent half her life in Switzerland and chose French as her writing language, Belle de Zuylen / Isabelle de Charrière parades a defiant attitude towards the constraints of the literary field. To read with care her letters, her novels, pamphlets and plays means accepting some modifications to our picture of the Enlightenment, and obliges us to question the limits of the field of literary criticism such as it has been structured since the nineteenth century, that is, along the lines of national canons. This bilingual volume (English and French) contains articles based on contributions to the international congress that was organized at Utrecht University in April 2005 on the occasion of the bicentennial of the author's death.
