Publisher Comments:

Now in Penguin Classicsa treasure trove of Jane Austen's novels

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 marriagemarriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not 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.

"These modern editions are to be strongly recommended."

Brian Southam, The Jane Austen Society

Synopsis:

Jane Austen wrote in the eighteenth century, but her novels are timeless. This complete anthology is unique among single-volume editions of her workbecause it includes the obscure but delightful Lady Susan, along with the six better-known novels and thirty of Hugh Thomson's irresistible drawings.

All of Jane Austen's novels are love stories, all are stories of country gentry, and all end happily, one way or another. Her plots have the complexity of life and her characters are described with inimitable style and witwhether caustic or warmly affectionate. The novels contained in this anthology are Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Lady Susan. The nineteenth-century illustrations of Hugh Thomson capture the flavor of Jane Austen's characters and enhance this extraordinary collection of the complete works of one of the greatest novelists of all time.

dearest people: this book is my absolute favorite.. or actually pride and prejudice;from jane austen's complete works... i read somwhere though that she had written a short story basically the second part to pride and prejudice... and was hoping to find it somewhere online like i did before.. so far no luck... but enough about that...i love the situation in which she has her characters invole... and then evolve... so to speak.... they are magnificent... and i wish today was more like her books... the romantic nature and everything... today seems too vulger and away from what the heart is about... true love... just is much more...and should be like pride and prejudice... where in the end you both see and change... for the other person.... okay enough here now... enjoy all of her works....
