Love and Friendship and Other Early Works

192 pages2 hours


A wonderful collection of early works by Jane Austen, including the titular “Love and Friendship”; a biting satire of the romance and sensibility novels popular in her day. Penned when she was just 14 years old this texts includes all of Austen's original spelling quirks. Although written for the enjoyment of family and friends, her witty dialogue and characteristic sense of humour are very much there. This volume also includes: 'An Unfinished Novel In Letters', 'The History of England', 'A Collection of Letters', and others.
Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) was an English author known primarily for her novels, which critique the 18th century English upper classes and contemporary novels of sensibility. Her use of irony coupled with biting social commentary and realism have led to her wide acclaim amongst scholars and critics, her work contributing to the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Other notable works by this author include: “Sense and Sensibility” (1811), “Pride and Prejudice” (1813), and “Mansfield Park” (1814). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
