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

Three notebooks of Jane Austen's early writings survive, dating from 1786 or 1787, around the time that Jane aged 11 or 12, and her older sister and collaborator Cassandra left school. Austen was already an indiscriminate and precocious reader, devouring pulp fiction and classic literature alike; what she read, she soon began to imitate and parody

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Emma is about young people trying to find suitable partners and learning to get on with each other. Emotional and sexual attractions are present throughout, though vividly implied or suggested rather than ploddingly gone into. The novel is also very moral: Emma doesn't physically harm her friends, but she does behave selfishly and thoughtlessly and hurts them - and us - quite painfully; she then feels remorse and learns to be more considerate: experiences which - being fairly general - are extremely interesting to read about. No character, no sentence could be cut out without reducing the whole. Funny, acute, and touching, Emma is the best of Jane Austen's novels. (Kirkus UK)
