The Jane Austen collection by Jane Austen( visu )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
The popularity of the adaptations of Jane Austen's novels is staggering. Much is attributed to her use of such universal themes as marriage, social pressure, and the generation gap; many love her strong, spirited and unpretentious heroines and her emphasis on reason, moderation, fidelity and consideration; but most of all it is her sparkling dialogue, razor-sharp wit, marvellous characters and ingeniously intricate plots that have made her a small-screen success. All of these are intrinsic in the BBC television adaptations of the Austen novels. "Emma" perfectly balances humour and romance; "Persuasion" has a great strong heroine; "Sense and sensibility" features the duelling of spirited sisters; "Mansfield Park" can claim Austen's most outrageous supporting characters; "Northanger Abbey" marvellously satirizes gothic romances, while the electric sensuality of "Pride and prejudice" has, with the courtship of Elizabeth and Darcy, remained everyone's favourite love story
