    About "Jane Austen"

    1. Jane Austen

      Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics.Austen lived her entire life as part of a close knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading The steadfast support of her family was critical to her development as a professional writer Her artistic apprenticeship lasted from her teenage years until she was about 35 years old During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility 1811 , Pride and Prejudice 1813 , Mansfield Park 1814 and Emma 1815 , she achieved success as a published writer She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.Austen s works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th century realism Her plots, though fundamentally comic, highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security Her work brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime, but the publication in 1869 of her nephew s A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced her to a wider public, and by the 1940s she had become widely accepted in academia as a great English writer The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship and the emergence of a Janeite fan culture.

    1. Deceiving apperances, bad morales, scandals, romance, love, historical mockery and an aggressive discussion of the lack of female education, can be met within these pages. As this collection unites Austen's early and juvenile writing, her first attempts at writing a novel and the very last fragment of fiction she ever wrote, it really provides its reader with a broad perspective on Austen's development as a writer. “But for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.” [...]


    2. I enjoyed reading Lady Susan, but my real delight in this volume (which I picked up at Chawton House Library **FANGIRL MOMENT**) was Love and Freindship (sic). Apart from my interest in reading something written by Austen as a teenager, it really showcases her sense of humour. It's a marvellous parody, despite, or perhaps because of, its naivety and I laughed and laughed. As a side-note: my edition was ok, but nothing to write home about. It would have benefited greatly from a foreword or notes [...]


    3. Hay vida más allá de Orgullo y prejuicio, aunque no lo parezca. Estas obras más desconocidas de la autora reflejan también todo su talento a la hora de escribir. De ellas, Los Watson es mi favorita (con esta edición, la releí) por su forma de narrar el papel de la mujer en su época y por reivindicar su independencia y su poder dentro de la sociedad.Hay que leer a Jane Austen, es algo imprescindible.


    4. Ich kann kaum was zu der Geschichte sagen. Dafür ist sie nicht lang genug. Was aber nicht bedeutet, dass nichts passiert. Sie ist voller menschlichen Zündstoffs. Wieder gibt es Charakterzeichnungen vom feinsten. Es kommt der dumme Dandy vor, das Opferlamm und eine überaus fiese Hydra, um nur einige zu nennen. Aber eines könnte ich doch sagen, denn wie heißt es so schön:"Zeige mir deine Freunde und ich sage dir, wer du bist."Das könnte passen auf Lady Susan.


    5. Review of Lady Susan:I was not a huge fan of any of the characters in this book, but it was interesting to see the swings in the feelings that Mr. De Courcy held towards Lady Susan. At first, he was inclined to think ill of her, than fell under "her spell," and, in the end, came to see her true nature. His first impressions of her were right after all.I think that one of the points the author may have been making in this book is that people often have two sides, and one should be very careful to [...]


    6. I am a massive Jane Austen fan, so once I had read all of her books I decided it was high time I read her novellas and short stories. I couldn't really get into them at all. The stories weren't anything special, neither were the characters. I suppose in her novels, Austen could really make you feel for her characters, whereas in short stories you don't have the time to do that. I was quite disappointed though.


    7. It's always interesting to see how an author evolved over his/her career, and Austen is no exception. The stories in this volume are lighthearted and juvenile, and would have been more enjoyable had I read them prior to her more mature work. That said, there's a charm & entertainment to them that foreshadows what she would go on to do as a writer.



    8. This collection of Jane Austen's short stories and unfinished novels was mostly delightful. There were a couple of stories I wasn't so interested in but being too busy with work is the main reason it took me a couple of weeks to read.It was interesting to see how she started finding her writing style and how she was mocking the dramatic novels that were in fashion at the time. I really enjoyed Lady Susan and The Watsons in particular and felt that if they had been completed they would have been [...]


    9. I had to read both of these for class and I enjoyed both works. Lady Susan has this great subtlety to it and I love how Austen seemed to take a realistic approach to things. Lady Susan is a gossiping, conniving woman but rather than being severely punished at the end of the story for her actions she just continues on. She ends up alone as her only real punishment for turning people against each other. She's married to a man who she only wanted for his money, not his companionship, she's cut off [...]


    10. A collection of Jane Austen's juvenilia and several unfinished works, including the beginning of a novel (Sanditon) that she was working on just before her death. Her early works show a young writer's particular interest in skewering the more ludicrous aspects of popular fiction of her day -- in one short work, for instance, two highly romantic female characters witness a tragic accident and alternately faint and go mad for several hours at a stretch (just as the fainting one revives, the sight [...]


    11. Io non ho quest'edizione, ma un libro che contiene:- Lady Susan;- I Watson;- Sanditon;- Progetto di un romanzo;- Opinioni su Mansfield Park;- Opinioni su Emma;- Poesie;- Sciarade;- Preghiere;- Sir Charles Grandison.Le opere "singole" prese di per sé non valgono propriamente 4 stelline, tra il fatto che qualcuna sia incompleta, le Preghiere di dubbia attribuzione e gli altri siano per lo più esperimenti o interessanti curiosità, ma, visto come "raccoglitore" che mette insieme tutte le "Altre O [...]


    12. This isn't the actual book I read but I couldn't find the e-version. I read both Love and Freindship(sic) which Austen will have to forgive people for finding it or forgive herself for not burning it (yes, it is that bad unless it is a parody and then it is rather funny) although I can forgive her when I heard that she started writing it when she was 11. Lady Susan is different and much better. Lady Susan is as we would say in the US "a real piece of work." This is one time when I think the movi [...]


    13. While it was interesting to read some of Austen's early work and see the beginnings of her famous style and voice, a lot of the very early works were a bit tedious--understandably, since it's the writing of a teenage girl/woman in her early twenties, sort of the equivalent of reading a published collection of someone's creative writing homework. The end of the collection, however, picks up quite a bit, with Lady Susan, a lesser-known short novel, and two (sadly) unfinished works, The Watsons and [...]


    14. While it was sometimes frustrating to read unfinished, rough or juvenile works, it was interesting to gain some insight into Austen's writing process. And her humor really shined. I really enjoyed Lady Susan and I so wish that The Watsons could have been completed. (Dare I read a version completed by a different author??)


    15. Some of the short stories were fun and I would read them again like Lady Susan, but most of them were just a few chapters of a story Austen had never finished or even properly started. It is an interesting treasure to have in my posession but it's not that I will fondly re-read often.



    16. I read Lady Susan and really enjoyed it. The next short story was so over the top, I struggled through to the end. I gave up by the third story. Maybe some day I will read the others.





    17. This is a collection of Jane Austen's shorter works, including her juvenilia. I'll be picking this up and putting it down, and will review each story as I read it. This may take a while.
