Sanditon by Jane Austen

Book Description

This is a dazzling collection of early stories and later fragments which throw an entirely new light on Jane Austen. In particular, they reveal a precociously brilliant genius with a talent for broad comedy and even farce. Most of the pieces in this collection are very funny indeed, and several - including the novella Lady Susan and the unfinished novel Sandition are also neglected masterpieces. Other material includes the celebrated History Of England, poems, prayers, the Plan of a Novel, etc. The volume is arranged in two parts, with the mature stories in Part 1 edited for easy reading, and the juvenilia collected by Austen herself presented exactly as she wrote them in Part 2. It includes everything she wrote apart from letters and the six famous novels, and is the final volume in the complete Everyman edition of her works now available in seven uniform volumes.

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 » A marvellous collection for Jane Austen fans. Although written when in her teens these stories already reflect Austen's distinct vision of life. Lady Susan is a series of letters between the flirtatious and scheming Susan and those whose lives she meddles in - to much more devastating effect than Emma Woodhouse. The centrepiece of the book is the great unfinished Sanditon, written at the height of her powers the novel follows the Parkers, a couple at odds with each other and the Denhams, an impoverished gentry family. Not to be missed. (Kirkus UK)

US Kirkus Review » That "Other Lady," having undertaken in 1974 to complete Miss Austen's unfinished 1817 novel of eleven chapters, and having struggled to remain upright on the hard high road of Austen prose, is to be complimented for redirecting our attention to Sanditon. Does she succeed in maintaining Austen's pace? Of course not, but then, as a Sanditon gentleman points out, ". . .we are sent into this world to be as extensively useful as possible." (Kirkus Reviews)
