Headache | Year: 2010
References to headache in the novels of Jane Austen have been examined. Nine characters, all female, suffer headache at one time or another, often in association with emotionally stressful situations. As an authorial device, headache may have served Jane Austen as a culturally sanctioned form of bodily expression. © 2010 American Headache Society.
