"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

Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen( Book )
146 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in 18 languages and held by 4,035 libraries worldwide
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY has more twists to its plot than should be allowed, and is far too complex for reconstruction here. Suffice it to say that in Elinor and Marianne Dashwood we are presented with contrasting qualities of character, the one practical and conventional, the other emotional and sentimental. The outcome turns on these young women mastering their primary characteristics and finding true happiness when in the one sense gives way to sensibility, and in the other sensibility to sense
Persuasion by Jane Austen( Sound Recording )

Beauty fades as seven years pass, when her former love returns a wealthier man. Anne finds herself slighted and all traces of their former intimacy gone. Mishaps and mischief mount as the pair tempt fate in this comic story of love
Love and friendship, and other early works by Jane Austen( Book )
121 editions published between 1790 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 3,597 libraries worldwide
When a noble youth arrives unannounced to request the hand of the matchless Laura, it seems their future is one of contentment and bliss -- that is until his family learn of the marriage and, one by one, they reject the new bride. So begins the series of unspeakable events that Laura must confront and overcome, by way of the occasional fainting fit and bout of delirium. Tragedy and comedy here go hand in hand as a very foolish young heroine is placed at the centre of Jane Austen's early satire on drawing-room society. Written as a series of letters, 'Love and Friendship' is a delicious romp through the highs and lows of a young girl's lot in life and a precursor of Austen's later works of genius. It is accompanied by 'The Three Sisters', another expertly crafted epistolary novel, and the brilliant 'A Collection of Letters' which has been described by Fay Weldon as 'five just about perfect short stories'

Austen tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion. Though Austen's fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen( Sound Recording )
131 editions published between 1814 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,785 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
