about

Jane Austen revolutionized the literary romance, using it as a platform from which to address issues of gender politics and class consciousness among the British middle-class of the late eighteenth century. The novels included in the collection - Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Lady Susan - represent all of Austen's complete novels, and provide the reader with an entrance into the world she and her memorable characters inhabited.

With witty, unflinching morality, Austen portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Austen's heroines find happiness in many forms, each of the novels is a story of love and marriage -- marriage for love, financial security and for social status.

In a publishing career that spanned less than ten years her work brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime. It wasn't until the 1940s that she became 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 fan culture. Austen's works continue to influence the course of the novel even as they charm readers today.

Complete and unabridged this beautiful volume is magnificent. Elegantly designed, this cloth bound hardcover edition is slip cased and features a ribbon marker and period styling. A must have for any "Janeite". Also included is an original introduction that provides the reader with enlightening information on Jane Austen's life and works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have A must have for Jane Austen lovers, but the book is so large and heavy that it isn't really that enjoyable to read. I would still recommend owning it because it is beautiful, but I have gotten other copies of the individual books for easier transportation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful collectors edition! I bought this as a beautiful bookshelf piece, to finally hide the worn out Jane Austen paperbacks I've used over the years. As for Jane Austen's storytelling, she indulges the romantic chivalry, only mirrored in other classic literature of her time, I find so wholly lacking in current culture. Her style of writing exhibits a flawless handle of the English language that leaves nothing wanting. A must read for all those who love fiction! #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Beautiful! I bought this for my sister for Christmas and ended up going to buy one for myself! It's such a nice addition to my collection. Might not be the best for reading because of its size but other than that I love it!
