Austen had many admiring readers who considered themselves part of a literary elite: they viewed their appreciation of Austen's works as a mark of their cultural taste. Philosopher and literary critic George Henry Lewes expressed this viewpoint in a series of enthusiastic articles. This theme continued later in the century with novelist Henry James, who referred to Austen several times with approval and on one occasion ranked her with Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Henry Fielding as among "the fine painters of life.

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen brings together the indelible characters, picturesque locations, and masterful storytelling of Jane Austen, one of the most beloved and celebrated authors of all time. This special ebook edition includes all of Austen's published works: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Love and Friendship and Other Early Works, Lady Susan, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. These novel contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language. In a publishing career that spanned less than a decade, Jane Austen used the romantic endeavours of her well-plotted characters as a stage from which to address issues of gender politics and class-consciousness rarely expressed in her day. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she painted vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close. Each of these novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed. This collection features the following works: Emma Lady Susan Love and Friendship and Other Early Works Mansfield Park Northanger Abbey Persuasion Pride and Prejudice Sense and Sensibility

Ein Meisterwerk der geistreichen Unterhaltung – ironisch, spritzig, klug «Northanger Abbey» ist ein Glanzstück der geistreichen Unterhaltung. Vorrangig als Satire auf den Schauerroman gedacht, zeigt der Roman die Meisterin der leben digen Dialoge und der ironischen Figuren zeichnung auf der Höhe ihrer Kunst. «Von scharfer Zunge, aber zärt lichem Herzen» (Virginia Woolf), zündet Jane Austen hier einmal mehr ein Feuer werk an Pointen. Catherine Morland ist zwar jung, doch weder auffallend hübsch noch besonders elegant oder wenigstens vermögend, und obendrein ein wahrer Ausbund an Naivität. Roman heldinnen sehen gemeinhin anders aus. Die Schöntuereien koketter Freun dinnen verwechselt sie mit Zuneigung, die Gefallsucht eitler Gecken mit standesgemäßer Noblesse. Doch die Erfahrung lehrt sie alsbald, daß nicht alles edel ist, was glänzt. Indem sie sich auf ihr Gefühl und ihre intuitive Menschenkenntnis verläßt, gelangt sie schließlich zu jenem fröhlichen Eigensinn, der das andere Geschlecht im Nu zu bezaubern vermag. Jane Austen (1775-1817) ist eine Klassikerin eigenen Ranges. Niemand stiftet auf amüsantere Weise unter Liebenden zuerst Verwirrung und zuletzt Ehen. Auch in «Northanger Abbey» geht es um das, was Männer und Frauen aneinander zweifeln läßt und sie nach vielen Bewährungs proben in beidseits gereiftem Verständnis zusammenführt. «Bleibend frisch, aufmüpfig bissig, klar komponiert sind die Gesellschaftsbilder Jane Austens», schreibt Hans Pleschinski im Nachwort: «nie zähflüs sig sentimental, sondern stets mit der ironischen Brechung, daß das Leben auch als aufwendige Komödie gesehen werden kann.» Mit „Northanger Abbey“ sind nunmehr sämtliche Austen-Romane in unserer Bibliothek der Weltliteratur erhältlich.

What are two sisters of uncertain fortunes to do when the death of their father exiles their family to live in the countryside of southwestern England? Why, fall in love, of course! Through her deft unraveling of the dramatically different romantic fates of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, Jane Austen displays her singular mastery of the English language and her equally masterful invention of colorful and realistic characters. The author’s appreciation of what it is to be human, grounded in her deeply convicted Christianity, illuminates the tale with special wisdom. In this, her first published novel, we see the sense and sensibility of Miss Austen herself, which combine to form the brilliance that shines forth in all of her works—a brilliance enlivened by her remarkable sense of humor and the affectionate kindness that could only be born of a gracious Christian spirit.
