A recent scholar book with Brontë-related content:
Power, Prose, and Purse: Law, Literature, and Economic Transformations
Alison LaCroix, Saul Levmore, and Martha C. Nussbaum
Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780190873455

From Anthony Trollope
to Sinclair Lewis, and from Jane Austen to James Joyce and John Steinbeck, many important novels touch on fundamental questions about the role of money in human affairs. These questions are explored in this volume through the lens of law and literature. The sixteen essays collected here, by important theorists from a range of disciplines, shed new light on the impact of economic change, from the Industrial Revolution to the Great Depression. Students of economics and business will gain a new appreciation of literature's insights on singular events and human emotions. Similarly, scholars and students of literature will gain an appreciation for the power of law and economics to inform literary and social analysis. The volume's focus on novels about money and economic upheaval showcases the power of the disciplinary marriage of law and literature.
The book contains the chapter:
Commerce, Law, and Revolution in the Novels of Elizabeth Gaskell and Charlotte Brontë by Alison LaCroix.
