Northanger Abbey Lady Susan The Watsons Sanditon

Author: Jane Austen

ISBN: 019953554X
Release Date: 2008-04-17
Genre: Fiction

Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of the ingenuous Catherine Morland, whose indefatigable reading of gothic novels sends her imagination into hilarious overdrive. Austen's literary burlesque is tempered with edginess and cirumspection, however, as ordinary life takes a more sinister turn. This edition also includes Austen's other short works and shows her to be as innovative at the start of her career as at its close.

Genre: Fiction

Comprising one finished novel, Lady Susan, which was published posthumously, and two unfinished fragments, Sanditon and The Watsons, this collection – full of melodrama and burlesque, and exploring a range of literary styles and social classes – spans the entirety of Jane Austen's writing life. The epistolary novel Lady Susan is the darkly humorous tale of the amatory schemes and machinations of an ambitious and unprincipled coquette. The Watsons is the tale of the refined and well-educated Emma Watson, forced by the second marriage of her aunt to return to the house of her impecunious father and face the marital plots and intrigues of her sisters. Begun in the last few months of Jane Austen's life, Sanditon, set in a fast-growing former fishing village, swiftly becoming a fashionable resort, pokes fun at the inhabitants of the new coastal town, with all their hypochondria, witlessness and self-obsession.

MY DEAR BROTHER,—I can no longer refuse myself the pleasure of profiting by your kind invitation when we last parted of spending some weeks with you at Churchhill, and, therefore, if quite convenient to you and Mrs. Vernon to receive me at present, I shall hope within a few days to be introduced to a sister whom I have so long desired to be acquainted with. My kind friends here are most affectionately urgent with me to prolong my stay, but their hospitable and cheerful dispositions lead them too much into society for my present situation and state of mind; and I impatiently look forward to the hour when I shall be admitted into your delightful retirement.

ISBN: 0521797284
Release Date: 2003-10-09
Genre: Literary Criticism

This collection of essays explores the literary and cinematic implications of translating Austen's prose into film. Contributors raise questions of how prose fiction and cinema differ, of how mass commercial audiences require changes to script and character, and of how continually remade films evoke memories of earlier productions. The essays represent widely divergent perspectives, from literary 'purists' suspicious of filmic renderings of Austen to film-makers who see the text as a stimulus for producing exceptional cinema. This comprehensive study will be of interest to students and teachers alike.

A Guinea Pig Pride Prejudice

Author: Jane Austen
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
ISBN: 9781632862433
Release Date: 2015-10-13
Genre: Humor

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single guinea pig in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. It is a truth personally acknowledged by Mrs. Bennet that all five of her furry daughters-Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia-are in need of husbands. To her mother's grave disappointment, Elizabeth Bennet is headstrong and won't take just anyone, especially not the haughty Mr. Darcy.* Elizabeth blames the arrogant gentleman for steering Mr. Bingley, one of the rare men in possession of a good fortune, away from her older sister Jane. But when boy-crazy Kitty and Lydia fall in with the wrong crowd, it is Darcy who saves the day-and the Bennet family honor-and wins Elizabeth's tiny, rapidly beating rodent heart. This delightful retelling of Pride and Prejudice is illustrated throughout with full color photos of the finest guinea pig actors working today. Costumers familiar with the elegant curves of the guinea pig form have tailored lush period looks. And of course, it is the love between guinea pigs that can best illustrate the depth of feeling between Jane Austen's Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. *The guinea pig playing Darcy struggled with looking supercilious, though rest assured, when carrots were removed from the elegant sets, the actor was able to still his nose long enough to look down it, and once he donned his summer-weight waistcoat, he made a fine and dashing Darcy.
