About this title


Lady Susan is a short epistolary novel by Jane Austen. Although the primary focus of this work is the selfish behaviour of Lady Susan as she searches for suitable husbands for herself and her young daughter, the real action shares its importance with Austen's manipulation of her characters' behaviour by means of their reactions to the letters that they receive. Austen demonstrates the subjectivity of the opinions by presenting them - primarily - in the letters of one woman to another, thereby suggesting the literary motifs of feminine gossip and jealousy. Readers recognize these subjective motifs and examine the idiosyncrasies of the characters in order to create their own opinion of Lady Susan, as they would with a real acquaintance.
The Watsons is a delightful fragment of an unfinished novel, whose spirited heroine - Emma - finds her marriage opportunities limited by poverty and pride. Includes notes from Austen as to how the novel would have finished.

About the Author:

One of England s most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen s work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen s writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen s request, her personal correspondence after Austen s death in 1817. Austen s authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.
