However, when peacetime arrives and brings the Navy home, and Anne encounters Captain Wentworth once more, she starts to believe in second chances.Persuasion celebrates romantic constancy in an era of turbulent change.

  • Northanger ABbey, Lady Susan, The Watsons (Owc) * 2008

    Northanger ABbey, Lady Susan, The Watsons (Owc) * 2008

    Austen, Jane
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    *The best-value edition, combining Northanger Abbey with three minor works, two early, one late, showing her originality across the full range of her career.*New introduction by Claudia L. Johnson reassesses received opinion about Northanger Abbey at the level of style as well as theme, and addresses recent critics as well as long established ones. Integrates for the first time the shorter, less-discussedworks into the argument.*Reset text has crisper appearance.*New, up-to-date bibliography, and new chronology by General Editor Vivien Jones (University of Leeds).*New and extensive notes in particular draw attention to the many subtle parodies of the Gothic genre.*Appendices on social rank and dancing further contextualize the works.'...in suspecting General Tilney of either murdering or shutting up his wife, she had scarcely sinned against his character, or magnified his cruelty.'Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of Catherine Morland, young, ingenuous, and mettlesome, and an indefatigable reader of gothic novels. Their romantic excess and dark overstatement feed her imagination, as tyrannical fathers and diabolicalvillains work their evil on forlorn heroines in isolated settings. What could be more remote from the uneventful securities of life in the midland counties of England? Yet as Austen brilliantly contrasts fiction with reality, ordinary life takes a moresinister turn, and edginess and circumspection are reaffirmed alongside comedy and literary burlesque.Also including Austen's other short fictions, Lady Susan, The Watsons, and Sanditon, this valuable new edition examines the ambitious and innovative works with which she inaugurated as well as closed her career.

    Sense and Sensibility (Owc) * 2008

    Austen, Jane
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    - One of Austen's five major novels in a revised and updated edition.- The standard Chapman/Kinsley text in a newly set typeface gives a more attractive appearance.- The new notes are fuller and provide more generous contextualization of social habits and Austen's language.- New chronology and bibliography provide up-to-date resources for further reading.- New appendices on social rank and dancing.- Retains Margaret Doody's still critically applauded introduction.New to this edition- Completely rewritten and expanded notes.- New and expanded chronology.- New, updated and expanded bibliography.- New appendices on social rank and dancing.Pray, pray be composed, cried Elinor, and do not betray what you feel to every body present. Perhaps he has not observed you yet.For Elinor Dashwood, sensible and sensitive, and her romantic, impetuous younger sister Marianne, the prospect of marrying the men they love appears remote. In a world ruled by money and self-interest, the Dashwood sisters have neither fortune norconnections. Concerned for others and for social proprieties, Elinor is ill-equipped to compete with self-centred fortune-hunters like Lucy Steele, whilst Marianne's unswerving belief in the truth of her own feelings makes her more dangerouslysusceptible to the designs of unscrupulous men.Through her heroines' parallel experiences of love, loss, and hope, Jane Austen offers a powerful analysis of the ways in which women's lives were shaped by the claustrophobic society in which they had to survive.

    Sometimes the Dashwood girls do not seem like sisters. Elinor is all calmness and reason, and can be relied upon for practical, common sense opinions. Marianne, on the other hand, is all sensibility, full of passionate and romantic feeling. She has notime for dull common sense - or for middle-aged men of thirty-five, long past the age of marriage. True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of seventeen, how can you ever expect to recover from thepassionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping?

  • Pride and Prejudice (Owc) *

    Pride and Prejudice (Owc) *

    Austen, Jane
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'This perfect indifference, and your pointed dislike, make it so delightfully absurd!' Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of theworld and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and menide down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain,and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy withseriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy, readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom.
