Jane Austen: The Works in Eight Volumes

( 50 )

Overview

Jane Austen's novels remain among the best-loved works of English literature, both in her native Britain and throughout the world. They have inspired numerous sequels, prequels and spin-off volumes, and have been widely adapted for film and television. For generations of readers, Austen's novels have come to represent the essence of the Regency period, epitomising wit, elegance, and a vanished world of politeness and privilege, and harking back to a time of greater moral and social coherence. Austen is also a ...

Overview

Jane Austen's novels remain among the best-loved works of English literature, both in her native Britain and throughout the world. They have inspired numerous sequels, prequels and spin-off volumes, and have been widely adapted for film and television. For generations of readers, Austen's novels have come to represent the essence of the Regency period, epitomising wit, elegance, and a vanished world of politeness and privilege, and harking back to a time of greater moral and social coherence. Austen is also a gentle satirist, justly celebrated for her ironically mocking depictions of the fashions and foibles of her age, and a moralist, known for the clarity of her moral vision and her penetrating psychological insight. For many readers, however, Austen's novels are quite simply the most delightful and satisfying love stories of all time, and her characters the most believable of literary creations. This edition, from Cambridge Scholars Publishing, makes available the complete text of all Jane Austen's works, including her juvenilia and unfinished later works, in an affordable and accessible format. Each volume features a very brief introduction, covering the historical context in which the work or works were written, Austen's own views of the text(s), relevant responses from later readers, and helpful suggestions for further reading. The edition also includes a longer general introduction to Austen's life and works, by a Jane Austen scholar, Dr Katie Halsey of the University of London. Publisher's Note to the Complete Works of Jane Austen This edition of the Works contains Austen's six completed mature novels, plus all the known surviving juvenilia, the early epistolary novel Lady Susan, and the two late novels left incomplete at Austen's death. The contents of the volumes are: Volume 1 (368 pp.): Critical introduction to the Works by Dr. Katie Halsey; Sense and Sensibility and Lady Susan (an early epistolary novel) Volume 2 (304 pp.): Pride and Prejudice Volume 3 (185 pp.): Northanger Abbey Volume 4 (347 pp.): Mansfield Park Volume 5 (365 pp.): Emma Volume 6 (188 pp.): Persuasion Volume 7 (205 pp.): Juvenilia Volume 8 (93 pp.): The Watsons and Sanditon (the incomplete novels) All of the Works have been newly typeset for this edition. The texts of The Watsons and Lady Susan are based on those published with J. E. Austen Leigh's memoir of Austen (London: Richard Bentley & Son, 1883). The juvenilia are based on the first editions, in three volumes, printed from the manuscripts: Volume the First (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1933); Love and Freindship (London: Chatto & Windus, 1922); Volume the Third (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1951). The text of Sanditon is based on the first edition from the manuscript (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1925). The texts of the published novels have been based on those available online from Project Gutenberg, with reference to Richard Bentley's 1833 collected edition. Dr. Katie Halsey (Institute of English Studies, University of London) has contributed both an introduction to the Works as a whole, printed in volume 1, and a separate brief introduction to each volume.

    All The Best In One Lovely Hardcover Edition!!

    I've read all of Jane Austen's novels several times through - my favorite being Pride and Prejudice which was what got me started back in middle school. They are all good and worth reading. Sometimes, you read a good book by an author, and when you try reading another one of their works, they disappoint you. That's not the case with JA. While all her books have similarities (novel of manners, marriage issue, the importance of character, etc.), the plots and characters are about as different as can be. Each heroine is unique, yet you can appreciate and like all of them. It's also a reasonable price and comes with a good, though short, introduction. For a longer more detailed introduction and end notes, go to the B&N Classics and buy them individually.

    disappointing and incomplete

    The book is poorly laid out, not even a page break between the end of one novel and the beginning of the next. The Table of contents is useless and unwieldy, and hundreds of pages are missing, including one whole novel. (Persuasion). It's a disgrace how many of these books have been slapped together without care for whether or not they're readable or worth any amount of money no matter how small.

    Charming!

    Wonderful books, and nice to have them all in one volume. I just wish Jane Austin had been able to write more stories.

    Austen Collection Not recommended

    Although all Ausen's books are in this collection, it is difficult to access them. The advertisement says that the Table of Contents is interactive, but it is difficult to make it work. I'm reduced to trying to set 'bookmarks' at the beginning of each book.

    If I knew it was this hard, I would not have bought it, even for 2.99.

    An excellent compendium of all things Austen

    If you want, you can hunt down the texts of all of Austen's books. But this Complete Collection is a nice and easy way to get at all of Jane Austen's novels in one package. You can lend this title to your friends as well. The table of contents makes it easy to jump to the various titles within, and you'll be digging Austen's wit in no time.

    Written in Old English?

    This copy of the Jane Austen stories is UNABRIDGED and I could not understand the context very well. It is written in Old English or something. I went back to get a edited version, and it has been a lot better!. I do not recommend this edition of the stories.
