Crw Publishing | August 30, 2008 | Hardcover

Jane Austen: The Complete Works is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

Jane Austen is perhaps the best loved of all English novelists. Her knowledge of human nature is remarkable, and her awareness of the importance of class, money and appearances makes her a peculiarly modern author. She addresses the politics of dating, courtship and mating with an incisive intelligence that both foreshadows and outstrips romantic novels of today.

Her teasing novels of gentle worldliness have been brought to new audiences by modern film and television productions, and this complete edition of her full length novels will be a welcome addition to any library or collection of books. This edition contains the delightful illustrations of Hugh Thomson, the finest illustrator of Jane Austen's works.

About the Author

Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector, and her life was by modern standards uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath, but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, aged forty one and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque to her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously. She never married.
