Jane Austen: the Complete Works [9780141395203]

(3 reviews) Write a Review

This title includes: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Love and Freindship (sic).

The seven books in this sumptuous box set contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language.

Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen.

Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she paints vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close.

Each of the 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 Jane Austen observed. 

AUTHOR: Jane Austen, the daughter of a clergyman, was born in Hampshire in 1775, and later lived in Bath and the village of Chawton. As a child and teenager, she wrote brilliantly witty stories for her family's amusement, as well as a novella, Lady Susan. Her first published novel was Sense and Sensibility, which appeared in 1811 and was soon followed by Pride and PrejudiceMansfield Park and Emma. Austen died in 1817, and Persuasion and Northanger Abbey were published posthumously in 1818.

    BOXED SET

    Posted by Maureen on 29th Jan 2018

    Very pleased with the set of Jane Austen novels.
    Well presented, delivered within a short timescale, well packed and at a competitive price.
    Would highly recommend them to any reader who, in addition to 'a good read' enjoys the look and the feel of a well presented classic

    Excellent quality

    Posted by Brian on 12th Jan 2018

    The works of Jane Austen need no praise from me so I will stick to the quality of the books themselves ... which is excellent. Printing, binding, covers and slip case are all very good quality. If I had to find one fault, it would be that the slip case is quite a tight fit which makes removing individual books a tad difficult but no big deal.
    One comment on the content ... the inclusion of the 'Juvenilia' was the main reason I chose this set rather than another.
    Delivery was, as always prompt and well packaged.

    Lovely set to read and keep

    This set has the nicest typeface of those I compared, and the books seem strong and well made. I've bought the set for my daughter and am going to give one each birthday and Christmas.
