OVERVIEW

The Complete Works Collection is proud to offer a landmark new edited and commented edition of the complete works of Jane Austen. For the very first time, EVERY PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED work of Jane Austen is available in a SINGLE VOLUME.

Jane Austen is arguably the greatest novelist in all of English literature. As G. Barnett Smith once declared, "In no instance is it possible to sum up the claims and characteristics of a writer of the first rank in a single phrase; but if it were demanded that we should attempt this in the case of Jane Austen, we should aver that her writings have not become obsolete, and never will become obsolete, because they are just and faithful transcripts of human nature. It is in this important respect that she is able to touch the hand of Shakespeare."

The author of such timeless classics as Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility and Emma, Jane Austen also left behind a sizable opus of unpublished works, plays, poems and letters, many of which are extremely rare and difficult to find in print. This collection brings together ALL of these writings with two essays on Jane Austen's life and literary legacy in a single, attractively priced Kindle volume.

EXCERPT

"She liked him. Sober-minded as she was, she thought him agreeable, and did not quarrel with the suspicion of his finding her equally so, which would arise, from his evidently disregarding his sister's motion to go, and persisting in his station and his discourse. If there are young ladies in the world at her time of life, more dull of fancy and more careless of pleasing, I know them not, and never wish to know them."

- From Sanditon (Unfinished Novel)

"Of Eastbourn, Mr. Gell
From being perfectly well
Became dreadfully ill
For the love of Miss Gill.

So he said with some sighs
I'm the slave of your i s
Ah! restore if you please
By accepting my e s."

- Austen's Poetry

    An incredible collection

    Yes, this has literally everything that Jane Austen has written. It will take me over a year to get through it all, but with Jane Austen, that is a pleasure.

    Masterpieces

    These are true masterpieces of English literature, and this is a truly comprehensive collection of JA's works. Well worth it.

    Outstanding!

    This really has ALL the works of Jane Austen, England's greatest writer. The wit and insights in her books are incredible, and they are just as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago in Jane Austen's time.

    An excellent addition to any Nook library.

    Amazing

    I thought I was a Jane Austen fan, but I was very surprised to see how many of her writings I had never heard of. This is a great Nookbook that will surely bring me many years of enjoyment ahead.

    Incomplete - buy a different version

    I love Jane Austen. I have read Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Lady Susan, Northanger Abbey, and Emma multiple times each, and wanted to fill out my collection with some of the minor and unfinished works. Well, this edition is not the way to do it. There are multiple blank pages in these works, such that they are unreadable. I'm disappointed.
