Tom Keymer is Chancellor Jackman Professor of English at the University of Toronto, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and the Royal Society of Canada, and has held fellowships with the Guggenheim Foundation, the Leverhulme Trust, and All Souls College, Oxford.  His latest book casts an expert eye over the key themes in each of Jane Austen’s six major novels.  It emphasises the literary, social, political and historical context of her fiction and explores her satirical response to her contemporary world.
