Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel, finished less than one year before her 1817 death. Though not as popular as Pride & Prejudice, this subtle Cinderella story has remained in print for nearly two centuries and has been the basis of several novels and TV miniseries. All that said, it has never been as accessible as in the annotated edition newly edited by David M. Shapard. This 544-page edition includes the text of this classic, but also notes; maps; illustrations; definitions and clarifications; a chronology; a description of its historical context; biographical information and excerpts; a bibliography; and literary responses and analysis. A brilliant follow-up to Shapard's The Annotated Pride & Prejudice (9780307278104).
