Sex in Jane Austen’s Novels

Many modern readers don’t believe that sex plays an important role in Jane Austen’s novels. Professor John Mullan, editor of the Oxford World’s Classics edition of Sense and Sensibility, helps us read between the lines to see the importance of sex and desire in Jane Austen.

John Mullan is Professor of English at University College London. He has previously edited editions of Daniel Defoe’s Roxana (2008) and Samuel Johnson’s The Lives of the Poets for Oxford World’s Classics. He is the author of What Matters in Jane Austen? (Bloomsbury, 2012), Anonymity: A Secret History of English Literature (Faber & Faber, 2008), and How Novels Work (OUP, 2006).
