“This is a book that will forever change the way we read Jane Austen’s fiction. In a series of compelling and well-documented analyses, Jillian Heydt-Stevenson shows us that Austen’s work is replete with sexual jokes, bawdy humor, double-entendres, erotic puns. Moreover, she persuasively argues that for Jane Austen, the mind cannot be separated from the body: sense and sensibility, consciousness and physical sensations, thought and feeling, are inextricably fused.”-- Anne K. Mellor, Romantic Circles
"Austen's Unbecoming Conjunctions is persuasive, engagingly written, and original in both detail and general argument."—Jocelyn Harris, Nineteenth-Century Literature
