Jane Austen is without question, one of England's most enduring and skilled novelists. With her wit, social precision, and unerring ability to create some of literature's most charismatic and believable heroines, she mesmerises her readers as much today as when her novels were first published. Whether it is her sharp, ironic gaze at the Gothic genre invoked by the adventures of Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey; the diffident and much put-upon Fanny Price struggling to cope with her emotions in Mansfield Park; her delightfully paced comedy of manners and the machinations of the sisters Elinor and Marianne in Sense and Sensibility; the quiet strength of Anne Elliot in Persuasion succeeding in a world designed to subjugate her very existence; and Emma - 'a heroine whom no one but myself will like' teased Austen - yet another irresistible character on fire with imagination and foresight. Indeed not unlike her renowned creator. Jane Austen is as sure-footed in her steps through society's whirlpools of convention and prosaic mores as she is in her sometimes restrained but ever precise and enduring prose.
A definitive compilation of the author's seven great novels offers a vivid portrait of English middle-class life, its mores, institutions, and society around the turn of the nineteenth century.
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen brings together the indelible characters, picturesque locations, and masterful storytelling of Jane Austen, one of the most beloved and celebrated authors of all time. This special ebook edition includes all of Austen's published works: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Love and Friendship and Other Early Works, Lady Susan, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. These novel contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language. In a publishing career that spanned less than a decade, Jane Austen used the romantic endeavours of her well-plotted characters as a stage from which to address issues of gender politics and class-consciousness rarely expressed in her day. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she painted vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close. Each of these novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed. This collection features the following works: Emma Lady Susan Love and Friendship and Other Early Works Mansfield Park Northanger Abbey Persuasion Pride and Prejudice Sense and Sensibility (The Complete Works of Jane Austen by Jane Austen, 9789380914794)
Complete and unabridged this elegantly designed, hardcover edition is slip cased and features a ribbon marker and period styling as well as an introduction providing the reader with enlightening information on Austen's life and works.
Jane Austen's world is the stratified society of the English provinces in the early nineteenth century. 'Sense and Sensibility' follows the divergent paths of harmonious love and oportunistic marriage through the stories of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood and the unscrupulous, self-advancing Lucy Steele and John Willoughby. Marriage is also the central concern of 'Pride and Prejudice,' in which the proud Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet play out their courtship, fallings-out, and reconciliation. Far more dark and introspective, 'Mansfield Park' offers Fanny Price, an orphan who becomes the salvation of a great Tory estate.
Jane Austen (1775–1817) was a major English novelist whose classic works of romantic fiction, notable for their wit, keen social observations and insight into the lives of early nineteenth-century women, remain widely read and loved today. This complete collection of her seven great novels – ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Mansfield Park’, ‘Emma’, ‘Northanger Abbey’, ‘Persuasion’ and ‘Lady Susan’ – presented in a single volume is an essential edition for collectors, students and general lovers of Jane Austen alike.
