Mansfield Park by Jane Austen( Recording )

205 editions published between 1814 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mansfield Park is the study of three families: the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices. At its center is Fanny Price, a poor relation adopted into the family of her rich uncle Thomas Bertram, and condescendingly treated. Only her cousin Edmund, a young clergyman, appreciates her fine qualities, and Fanny falls in love with him. Unfortunately, he is drawn to the shallow and worldly Mary Crawford. Fanny's quiet passivity, steadfast loyalty, and natural goodness are matched against the wit and brilliance of her lovely rival. Jane Austen skillfully uses her characters' emotional relationships to explore the social and moral values by which they attempt to order their lives

The Watsons by Jane Austen( Book )

123 editions published between 1871 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fragment of a novel was written by Jane Austin about 1803-1805, but was not published until 1871, as part of James Edward Austen-Leigh's Memoir (Jane Austen had left it untitled; the title "The Watsons" was provided by Austen-Leigh). It describes Emma Watson's return, after a long absence, to her family, who are on the lower financial fringes of the "genteel". It is not clear why Jane Austen did not continue this fragment - perhaps because of her father's death; or because she was discouraged by the fact that after she succeed in selling her first novel (Susan, an earlier version of Northanger Abbey, for a nominal sum in 1803), the publisher decided not to publish after all, and sat on the manuscript; or because she did not want to sustain the tone of almost "painful realism" (according to Jenkins) with which she had begun."
Pride and prejudice : an authoritative text, backgrounds and sources, criticism by Jane Austen( Book )

24 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in English and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A perennial favorite in the Norton Critical Editions series, Pride and Prejudice is based on the 1813 first edition text, which has been thoroughly annotated for undergraduate readers." ""Backgrounds and Sources" includes biographical portraits of Austen by members of her family and by biographers Park Honan, Claire Tomalin, and David Nokes. Seventeen of Austen's letters - eight of them new to the Third Edition - allow readers to glimpse the close-knit society that was Austen's world, both in life and in literature. Samples of Austen's early writing - from the epistolary Love and Friendship and A Collection of Letters - allow readers to trace Austen's growth as a writer." ""Criticism" includes eighteen assessments of the novel by nineteenth- and twentieth-century commentators, six of them new to the Third Edition, among them remarks on the recent BBC television adaptation of the novel and on the tensions and accommodations of class in Austen's work." "Also included are A Note on Money, a Chronology of Austen's life and work, and an updated Selected bibliography."--Jacket
