Описание
Jane Austen began writing in her early teens, filling three notebooks with her fiction. The characters of these stories have a jaunty, never-failing self-devotion. They perpetually lie, cheat, steal - and occasionally murder. In these short or unfinished pieces, Austen exhibits her sense of the preposterous in life and fiction with tough-mindedness and robust humour, and without inhibition.
In addition to prose fiction and prayers, this collection contains many of Austen's poems, written to amuse or console friends, and rarely reprinted. Texts are based on manuscripts, including the three notebooks, affording a distinct edition with a number of new readings.
This edition includes: introduction; textual note; bibliography chronology; explanatory notes.
Edited by Margaret Anne Doody and Douglas Murray with an introduction by Margaret Anne Doody.
