Jane Austen's afterlives -- Jane Austen's body -- Jane Austen's magic -- Jane Austen's World War I -- Jane Austen's World War II -- Jane Austen's house -- Jane Austen's ubiquity -- Austen family folk tales.
Johnson begins by exploring the most important monuments and portraits of Austen, considering how these artifacts point to an author who is invisible and yet whose image is inseparable from the characters and fictional worlds she created. She then passes through the four critical phases of Austen's reception.
