Complete Novels of Jane Austen by Jane Austen

Book Description

From one of the greatest novelists of the nineteenth century, The Complete Novels of Jane Austen collects all of Jane Austen's novels in a single volume, published in Penguin Classics. Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Here in one volume are her seven great novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Lady Susan. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage - marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not straightforward romances: ironic, comic and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England's finest prose stylists of any century. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was famously modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most revered writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, Pride and Prejudice, at the age of 22. She was the author of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. If you enjoyed The Complete Novels of Jane Austen, you might like Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, also available in Penguin Classics. 'One of my favourite writers' Helen Fielding, author of Bridget Jones's Diary 'You care about the people living between Austen's pages as intensely as if they were real' Esther Freud, author of Hideous Kinky 'Jane Austen is a writer who will be with you for a lifetime' Elizabeth Buchan, author of Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman

Books By Author Jane Austen

Teenage Writings by Jane Austen Teenage Writings, Paperback (March 2017)

The young Jane Austen was a precocious reader, devouring pulp fiction and classic literature, both of which she soon began to imitate and parody. Three volumes of her vivacious teenage writing survive. Devices and themes which appear subtly in her later fiction run riot here: drunkenness, brawling, sexual misdemeanour, theft, and even murder.
